After quite a few months of will it or won’t it surrounding the Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney Plus, it seems everything is back on track. Ewan McGregor spoke about the upcoming series on a Zoom call for BBC‘s The Graham Norton Show. He revealed that production on the series is set to start in March 2021. The series was announced in 2019 with hopes that production would begin in 2020. However, things were delayed after Hossein Amini left the project.

He was quickly replaced by Joby Harold but like everything in 2020, Covid-19 had a major impact. It is great to see that we don’t have to wait long. With how quick Disney and Lucasfilm are able to get these projects out, we might be seeing this premiere in 2022. One thing we know for certain at this point is that the series will follow Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series will be set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

We do have our theories, though. At the beginning of the year, we learned that the series is going under “Pilgrim” during production. This could be a reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s time on Tatooine while he watches over Luke. He clearly doesn’t spend all his time just wandering through the desert. He has always been a favorite character in the series, and finally getting a chance to see his side of the story will be interesting.
