Changing as it did from a 2 hour movie script to a 6-part season of episodes, the Obi-Wan Kenobi project has had a rollercoaster ride so far, so the news that writer and producer Joby Harold is joining the project after the departure earlier this year of Hossein Amini is encouraging and shows the project moving forward and making the most of the extra time it’s given itself by pushing filming back to January next year.
Joby Harold has been tapped to write the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney Plus, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.
Harold takes over writing the highly-anticipated series from Hossein Amini, who left the project back in January. This would mark Harold’s first time writing for a television series. He most recently executive produced “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum” and is also writing the script for Zack Snyder’s film “Army of the Dead.” He was one of two writers, alongside James Vanderbilt, who was selected to develop a new take on the “Transformers” franchise for Paramount.
