Disney+ Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Gets a New Writer

Joby Harold has been tapped to write the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney+. Harold takes over writing the highly-anticipated series from Hossein Amini, who left the project back in January. This would mark Harold’s first time writing for a television series.

 

He most recently executive produced John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum and is also writing the script for Zack Snyder’s film Army of the Dead. He was one of two writers, alongside James Vanderbilt, who was selected to develop a new take on the Transformers franchise for Paramount.

 

To date, Harold has served as an executive producer on the critically-acclaimed WGN America drama series Underground and the recent Netflix series Spinning Out. It was announced back in October that Harold and his Safehouse Pictures banner had signed a first look deal with Legendary Television.
