Ewan McGregor–Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Confirmed

August 23, 2019 at 8:24 pm | Posted in Conventions, d23 expo, Ewan McGregor, Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm, Miscellaneous, Television | 2 Comments

obiwanFinally what the fans have been waiting for, not to mention what’s been rumored (since forever) has been confirmed.  Kathleen Kennedy took the stage today at D23 Expo to announce that filming for the live action Kenobi series will start next year when McGregor will reprise his role as the younger Kenobi.  The series, with 8 scripts already written, will air on Disney+.

Although McGregor was aged up in Revenge of the Sith to bear a closer resemblance to original trilogy Alec Guinness (who was 63 in 1977), this series will be set 8 years out from ROTS, which now basically makes McGregor at 48 age appropriate.  I guess the old saying is true: all good things come to those who wait.  For both actor and fans.
