Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a new Star Wars streaming series, which the actor has now confirmed will start filming in March 2021. The show will be decorated by Deborah Chow, who is one of the directors on Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
Fantha Tracks has highlighted the news that during an interview with Graham Norton, McGregor revealed “we start shooting it in March next year.”
During the conversation, he discussed the reverence he has for Alec Guinness, who originated the role in Star Wars: An New Hope.
The new Kenobi series will be set eight years after Revenge of the Sith, a time period when it had previously been assumed that the Jedi Knight was in solitude on Tatooine.
March filming suggests that the series could be ready in late 2021, or more likely, early 2022. Fans will be keen to see what LEGO Star Wars appear to tie in with the show.
