Could An Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Be Coming To Disney+? According to comicbook.com there is a high possibility!
Talks of an Obi-Wan centered film were circulating last year and the project seemed to be greenlit and ready to go. As quickly as the idea was put together, it seemed to fall apart after the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Or so we thought.
In 2018 it was announced that Disney would be creating their own streaming service, called Disney+, and soon after many of the “scraped” film projects seemed to be brought back to life with announcements that they would be made as exclusive content for Disney+. This included the announcement of “The Mandalorian” Series and several other subjects such as characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and Marvel Comics.
So what does this mean for Obi-Wan Kenobi? Well comicbook.com seems to believe that Lucasfilm and Disney will announce the creation of an Obi-Wan based series for Disney+ that will be announced at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration being hosted in Chicago, Illinois this April.
What about Ewan McGregor? The actor has been working close with Disney in the last few years, primarily in the roles of Lumiere in the live action Beauty and the Beast and as a grown up Christopher Robin in Christopher Robin, with what appears to be a great working relationship between the two it would simply be natural for him to reprise his role. Ewan has expressed interest in the past and can even be quoted to have said that he thinks he is the right age to play Obi-Wan in a series that would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
No official announcement as been made at this time, but more than likely we can expect some big announcements coming from the entertainment conglomerates at the Star Wars Celebration. Would you like to see a series revolving around the adventures of one of the last of the Jedi Knights? We sure would! Only time will tell, but the force seems strong with this one.
