Sounds like the upcoming Disney+ live action “Star Wars” spinoff series all about Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi will finally start filming soon! As in, like, this year. Star Ewan McGregor confirmed a late Spring start for filming, and where production will be actually shooting.
McGregor stopped by Eddie Izzard‘s marathon live stream, and the pair chatted about numerous things. But the reveal that yes, “Kenobi” will be filming in LA, is the big news:
“We start making it, um, in the late Spring and [we’re] gonna be shooting it here in L.A. and not, as…it’s so funny, every week, there’s a new report…my dad keeps sending me links saying ‘I thought you were shooting it in L.A.,’ because there’s another tabloid, y’know, exposé that we’re shooting it in some bizarre town in somewhere… And then we’re meant to be making it in Boston, and then we’re meant to be making it — no, it wasn’t Boston, it was Boston, England… But we’re not, we’re shooting it in L.A. and, uh, we’re shooting it much in the way that The Mandalorian series was shot using some of that technology.”
