The timeline for the Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor has finally been confirmed.
After years of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Ewan McGregor is getting his own solo adventures as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars series set for Disney Plus. More details are slowly coming to light about what audiences can expect from the series, and we now know when it takes place in the grand Star Wars timeline. While it isn’t much for the moment, it gives fans plenty to go on when speculating what the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series might revolve around, or who else might show up alongside Ewan McGregor.
The Star Wars Show finally confirmed for fans not in the room at D23 that Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series will take place exactly eight years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, close to the timeframe of Solo: A Star Wars Story. This obviously leads to speculation of the appearance (or at least a mention) of Darth Maul, Qi’ra and maybe even Han Solo himself. While the animated Star Wars Rebels series showed off Obi-Wan Kenobi’s final confrontation with Darth Maul, it would be fantastic to see Ewan McGregor take on Ray Park once again in live-action. If Obi-Wan Kenobi is living on Tatooine in the series, it wouldn’t be impossible to see other legendary Star Wars characters like Jabba the Hutt appear either.
With production starting next year, it’ll be some time before fans get to see Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi again, but it’ll be worth the wait. Are you excited for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series? Let us know who you want to see Ewan McGregor go up against in the comments section!
Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series featuring Ewan McGregor will be the mouse house’s third live-action Star Wars series for Disney Plus. First up is The Mandalorian which will feature Pedro Pascal as a lone gunslinger after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The series, which hails from Jon Favreau, also stars Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte. The Mandalorian premieres November 12 on Disney Plus.
Following The Mandalorian, Diego Luna will reprise his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story role as Cassian Andor in a prequel series which will follow the Rebel spy working as an intelligence operative during the formative years of the Rebel Alliance. Stephen Schiff (The Americans) is serving as showrunner. Production on the project is set to begin next year after the actor completes his work on the second season of Narcos: Mexico.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Ewan McGregor and the future of the Star Wars franchise on the Disney Plus streaming service!
