Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Formally Announced for Disney Plus

After word came out last week that Ewan McGregor had signed on to reprise the role of Obi-Wan, D23 has made it official! 

My excitement level is through the roof right now. Not only are we getting an Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ with Ewan McGregor coming back, this also definitively confirms our scoop from last week! It’s an exciting time.

Kathleen Kennedy closed out the D23 panel, after a stellar trailer for The Mandalorian, by bringing Ewan McGregor himself out on stage. There he confirmed he’s putting the robes back on again for a series that will take place eight years after Revenge of the Sith.

Apparently scripts are already in place and filming is set to begin next year. On top of this, The Mandalorian, and the Cassian Andor series (briefly talked about and filming next year as well), Star Wars fans have a LOT to look forward to on Disney+.
