It looks like production on the untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series is back on track. Over the weekend, Ewan McGregor revealed when filming on the Star Wars spinoff series was expected to begin. It’s been a minute since we’ve had some news on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series front, which makes McGregor’s tease all the more exciting.
The news comes after production came to a screeching halt back in January. At the time, we reported the cast and crew were sent home after assembling at Pinewood Studios in London, with production shutting down “indefinitely.” It was believed the shutdown was due to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy‘s dissatisfaction with the scripts. Just a few months later, it was reported the John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum executive producer Joby Harold was hired to pen a new set of scripts after Hossein Amini‘s departure from the series around the time of the shutdown. Deborah Chow remains in the director’s chair for the series. Still a mystery to us all, however, is who will be joining McGregor in the Obi-Wan series cast.
We’ll keep you posted on the Obi-Wan Disney+ series as the project develops.
