Ewan McGregor will return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a series for Disney +


Ewan McGregor will return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a series for Disney +

15 AUG 2019 / Series

The planned film project was transformed into a production for the streaming platform that Disney will present.

For a long time it was reported that Lucasfilm contemplated making a film focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi that would allow the return of Ewan McGregor to the Star Wars saga. But the economic results of the Han Solo movie seemed to bury that initiative.

But now that return could be achieved thanks to the new Disney + streaming service, which would be the home of a new production located between the events of Revenge of the Sith and the original franchise movie.

In Deadline they confirmed a report that initially appeared during this day in Cinelinx and explain that the 48-year-old Scottish actor is in talks to star in the series. Although they do not give more details, they do establish that: “Kenobi's plans to produce solo films were transformed into the current plan for a large budget series for Disney +, just as the discussion of a Boba Fett movie gave way to The Mandalorian series. “

The same portal emphasizes that Disney + will be an important basis for Disney's future strategy, so the next D23 event would host more announcements for this new platform. They even argue that McGregor could be presented on that occasion that will take place between August 23 and 25.
