We’re extremely pleased to share the news, directly from Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi himself, that the upcoming Disney+ “Star Wars” spinoff series will start filming in early 2021. Another thing to look forward to about 2020 ending, amiright?
Ewan McGregor, who brought a younger version of Kenobi to the big screen in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” will be picking up the lightsaber again for the new series.
As the actor told Entertainment Tonight, as far as he knows, it’ll be a single standalone season, AND they’ll start filming next year:
“As I understand, it’s a standalone season. We’ll see. Who knows? Spring next year we start. I’m really excited about it. It’s gonna be great, I think.”
Sure, it’s not a HUGE update, but we’re pretty excited to see what director Deborah Chow (“The Mandalorian“) has in store for us.
We will of course let you know what we hear about this and other “Star Wars” news.
