Star Wars: Kenobi Series Reported to Begin Filming in Boston Next Month



We’ve heard a few different reports about when and where the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series will start filming, namely that Spring 2021 in the UK has been the most talked about time. But a new report could reveal an earlier start date in a very different place.


WBZ4 in Boston, citing a report from, brings word that filming on the series will begin January 4 and that part of the shoot will take place in Boston. This news hasn’t been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, and seems a little surprising considering the COVID-19 production bubble that will seemingly be put together for the series as it shoots in the UK.



Ewan McGregor will be back as Kenobi in the limited series coming exclusively to Disney+, appearing as the character for the first time since 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Though production has been pushed back and stalled a few times, cameras will roll on it soon and the actor is ready. “Spring next year we start, so I’m really excited about it,” said McGregor. “I’m super excited about it, it’s going to be great, I think. There’s no talk of [a second season] it’s pretty much as I understand it a standalone season. But we’ll see, who knows?”
