Ewan McGregor Gives Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus Series Update

Ewan McGregor is speaking out about his Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney Plus.

It was previously announced that the 48-year-old actor’s show has been put on hold.

It is now being reported that filming for Ewan‘s series has been pushed back to next year, as writer Hossein Amini needs to be replaced.

“I think we start shooting early next year as opposed to summer this year,” Ewan McGregor told Variety. “I think the scripts are great. They’re in really good shape. They want them to be better. I think we keep our same airdate. All good.”

“I didn’t realize until we got here tonight and everybody is going, ‘Oh, my god!’” he added. “But it’s not really as dramatic as it might seem.”

Meanwhile, The Mandalorian‘s Deborah ChowStar Wars‘ first-ever female director – is still set to helm.
