Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been put on hold at Disney Plus.
Last week, a swirl of rumors suggested that Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series for the Disney Plus streaming service had been canceled. That piece of information turned out to be false, but it did plant the seeds for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series to be put on hold at Disney Plus. According to Collider, the series which would bring Ewan McGregor back to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi after over a decade has been put on hold at Disney Plus.
According to the report, crew members that had taken up shop at Pinewood Studios in London were sent home. Crew members poised to work on the Disney Plus series were told that the Ewan McGregor-led show would be on hold “indefinitely”. It appears that Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy wasn’t pleased with the scripts for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. It is expected that the writers will go back to the drawing board and rewrite the scripts to ensure that the show is up to the level one would expect.
Without a doubt, this is fantastic news as previous Star Wars films under Disney such as Rogue One, Solo, and The Rise of Skywalker have been plagued with production problems. It’s quite telling that Kathleen Kennedy doesn’t want the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor to be a stain on the Star Wars legacy. Of course, Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most iconic Star Wars characters, and fan backlash is the last thing that anyone would want, especially after the lukewarm reception The Rise of Skywalker received.
