A new report states that the long-rumored Star Wars spinoff film, Obi-Wan Kenobi is now in official pre-production. According to comicbook the shoot slated for a spring 2019 shoot and the film hitting theaters in 2020.
“The project is sufficiently along that an art department is now in full pre-production mode at Pinewood Studios, England with ancillary work being carried out at Industrial Light & Magic in London. A number of concept artists, prop modelers, and storyboard artists are working as a team across the two locations on the film, with the group growing in numbers every month.
Contracts have also been extended to a number of crew who have worked on various Star Wars films produced at Pinewood under the Disney era, to join the production when their work on Episode IX ends…
Pre-production will continue at Pinewood whilst Episode IX shoots from this summer through the end of the year, at which point production of the Obi-Wan movie has been scheduled to move onto stages in mid January 2019 with the main shoot to begin in April of 2019.
The project is being developed under the corporate name of PLT Productions (UK) Ltd. The scheduled release date is December 2020.”
This is right on the heels of “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. Let’s hope this is all credible. if so, we can expect casting and production announcements soon!
