Ewan McGregor–Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Confirmed

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.

Enjoy!


With Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens being your first Star Wars project, how did it come about?

Landry Walker: I was working at the Sideshow Collectibles office – I do freelance story development for with them with their Court of the Dead property, and I checked my email. The email basically said “Hi. Do you want to work on Star Wars?” And then a bunch of other stuff about the project, I think. I handed the phone over to my comics collaborator Eric Jones who was with me that day and had to have him read the email because I had stopped breathing after that first sentence.
