Fans were treated to the very first live-action Star Wars series last year with The Mandalorian, and now they’re waiting on another new series to hit Disney+. The upcoming show is expected to follow Obi-Wan Kenobi and see the long-awaited return of Ewan McGregor in the role.
Unfortunately, recent reports claim that the show isn’t set to start filming until March of next year. Production on the series was previously delayed from August of this year until January of 2021, a decision made before the coronavirus pandemic shut down film and television sets. If the rumors are true, it’ll likely going to be a long time before we even catch a glimpse of the first season.
It is still a good sign that the show is continuing after delays made fans nervous. Deborah Chow, who helmed episodes of The Mandalorian, is set to be the sole director of the new series.
Stay tuned for further details on the new Disney+ series featuring the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
