Following his Emmy win on Sunday for Netflix’s Halston, Ewan McGregor teased the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series that he’s made for Disney+, suggesting (as any Disney actor under contract SHOULD do) it’s one that you won’t want to miss.
“We finished shooting our series, and it was really, really good fun. I really enjoyed working with [director/executive producer] Deborah Chow, and I think it will not disappoint,” he said backstage. “The new technology that we employed doing it is cool, and it was a different experience than making the original three [Star Wars] films that I did.”
McGregor also exec produced the new limited series, centered on his character from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. For now, its plot remains under wraps. The veteran actor will star alongside Hayden Christensen, Joel Edgerton, Maya Erskine, Rupert Friend, fellow 2021 Emmy nom Moses Ingram, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kan, Simone Kessell, Kumail Nanjiani, Bonnie Piesse, Benny Sadie, Indira Varma and more.
