Almost two decades later, Ewan McGregor
is donning his Jedi robes once again for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi
, a Disney+ limited series that catches up with Old Ben 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. It’s a dream come true for Star Wars
fans who hoped to see how the Jedi Master transitioned from foremost Jedi general of the Republic during the Clone Wars to wise old hermit living in the remote deserts of Tatooine.
McGregor and Lucasfilm
spent years denying that there were plans to bring Obi-Wan back to the screen, so it’s very surreal to see a new series kick off filming in LA this month. In fact, Obi-Wan Kenobi is now shooting on the same soundstages used for The Mandalorian
(which is reportedly why the third season of the latter show won’t premiere until late 2022).
