New set photos from the upcoming Star Wars event series Obi-Wan Kenobi show off Ewan McGregor and other cast members.
Ewan McGregor will be returning to reprise his role as the iconic Jedi as seen in the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. The long-awaited return of the beloved actor as Obi-Wan Kenobi has been in development for years, beginning as a standalone Star Wars Story film that was set to be directed by Stephen Daldry. After the box office failure of Solo: A Star Wars Story, that project was repurposed as a new event series for Disney Plus.
New set photos from the highly-anticipated new series have arrived courtesy of Just Jared, featuring Ewan McGregor and a few other cast members wearing robes to cover up their costumes. Although he’s wearing a robe (likely over his iconic Jedi robe), we do get a glimpse at Ewan McGregor’s hairstyle, which could indicate his new look.
