Ewan McGregor was on The Graham Norton Show yesterday and confirmed that the Disney+ series about Obi-Wan Kenobi will start filming in March. 2021!
It’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi story, I suppose. It’s not all (about) me, but it certainly will be a lot of me, which is good! We start shooting it in March of next year.Ewan McGregor said on The Graham Norton Show
Ewan McGregor also said that he had never met Sir Alec Guinness, the actor who portrayed the original in Star Wars. However, to prepare for his take on Obi-Wan, he watched a lot of Guinness’s old movies.
I never got to meet (Guinness), but I love him through his work.Ewan McGregor said on The Graham Norton Show
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is another one that was delayed because of the Coronavirus. They announced the show back in 2019 as a one season, six episode series.
It takes place 8 years after ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and 11 years before ‘A New Hope’. I don’t know about y’all, but I have a super hard time with the back and forth in movies these days, my brain is so broken!
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ takes place in a time where the Jedi Order has nearly been wiped completely out. Are you excited about this?
