Ewan McGregor says the Obi-Wan Kenobi series delay will improve the show’s scripts.
An Obi-Wan Kenobi project with Ewan McGregor has been in development over at Lucasfilm for quite some time now and was originally going to be a film. However, with the Star Wars standalone films put to rest and the launch of Disney Plus, Obi-Wan Kenobi is now getting his own television series instead. After several years of reports, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series was finally announced by Ewan McGregor at last year’s D23.
Last week, reports started coming out that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series was being put on hold after filming was originally going to start this year. Entertainment Tonight caught up with Ewan McGregor at a recent “Harleywood” Birds of Prey event, where he explained why the series is being delayed:
“The scripts are really, really good. They want to make them better and they just slid the production to shooting next year. So it’s not as dramatic as it sounds. I just got here tonight and it’s like, ‘Oh my god, look at all this stuff.’ It’s not that dramatic. I think we’re airing the same day and all that stuff.”

Deborah Chow is set to direct Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which is just one of three officially announced Star Wars shows for Disney Plus. The Mandalorian debuted on the streaming service this past November with stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The series was written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
An untitled Rogue One prequel centered on Cassian Andor is also in development with Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk reprising their respective roles. The Americans producer Stephen Schiff serves as showrunner and the series is expected to begin filming this year.
