As rumours swirl around fandom regarding Disney Plus series for Rose, Finn, Qi’Ra and Lando Calrissian, news comes via Star Wars News Net regarding another possible production, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series that would replace the rumoured movie trilogy that was on the cusp of production last year.
The Kenobi project was initially supposed to be a film, as had been reported several times over the last few years, but everything changed after the disappointing box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. We were told that the Kenobi film was actually supposed to start production shortly after Solo premiered, and then everything changed. This certainly puts much more clarity on that famous Bob Iger “rethinking our approach” statement from last year.
There is no confirmation on whether or not an announcement of the series is imminent, or that it will be announced at Star Wars Celebration, though if it is in good standing that would make sense – and although there are many “TV series” rumors out there right now, we are told this one is happening and will go into production.
As ever, until it’s confirmed then it’s simply a rumour but for now, enjoy the conjecture and the delicious storytelling opportunities an Obi-Wan series led by Ewan Mcgregor could bring.
