Ewan McGregor may be Obi-Wan Kenobi once more for a Disney+ Series

Hello there!

While the Kenobi film was cancelled, it seems that Disney is planning a Kenobi TV show for their Disney+ streaming service.

Thankfully, they are in talks with Ewan McGregor to return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was one of the best things in the Star Wars prequels so I really hope they manage to make this work.

Deadline had the news, but there are currently no more details about the show.

However, rumours suggest that it will have 6 to 8 episodes. McGregor may direct multiple episodes and a “familiar mechanical co-star” may also be returning.

Disney+ plans are expected to be a core component of the on-stage preview presentations at Disney’s D23 Expo later this month in Anaheim. It is thought that this will include the introduction of McGregor as a returning screen star in the Jedi universe.

While I enjoyed The Force Awakens, I was terribly disappointed with The Last Jedi and Solo had its moments, but was a bit flat and dull. Fingers crossed that we do get to see more Kenobi. There are rumours that while George Lucas did sell Star Wars to Disney he did keep hold of the rights to the classic characters and that’s why Disney has been getting rid of many of the things related to the original trilogy. However, if a Kenobi show does happen that would seem to debunk that rumour.

This year McGregor will be Black Mask in the Birds of Prey film and in horror sequel Doctor Sleep, in which he portrays Danny Torrance, the grown-up survivor of the Overlook Hotel massacre depicted in The Shining.

For Star Wars we have The Mandalorian from Jon Favreau and starring Pedro Pascal. The bounty hunter series will debut on Nov. 12, the Disney+ launch date.

There are also plans for a Rogue One prequel series which will have Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk reprising their characters Cassian Andor and K-2S0.

What do you want to see in the Kenobi series?
