Disney has announced their next Star Wars series on Disney+, and it’s — KENOBI!
There are A LOT of rumors flying around about casting for the KENOBI series, but the only CONFIRMED cast member is Ewan McGregor.
The rumor is that Hayden Christensen and Liam Neeson might reprise their roles in this Star Wars series, but this has not yet been confirmed.
Here is what we DO know about KENOBI:
The series will be EXCLUSIVE to Disney+ — take THAT, all you Disney haters.
The series is set to take place eight years after the event of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
So, it totally makes sense that Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan.
KENOBI will be written by Hossein Amini, who is also the writer of the movie Drive and The Four Feathers. Both are awesome films. I highly recommend them, if you haven’t yet seen them.
The show will be Executive Produced by Deborah Chow, Hossein Amini, and Ewan McGregor. John Swartz, who also worked on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will partner with them as Executive Producer, as will Kathleen Kennedy and Tracey Seaward.
KENOBI is currently in pre-production, but is definitely coming soon. Be on the lookout. And for goodness sakes, don’t cancel your Disney+ membership!
