The working title for Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series has been revealed.
After the success of The Mandalorian, fans are understandably desperate to see more from Star Wars on Disney Plus. It seems like Disney and Lucasfilm are getting ready for production as the working title for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been revealed in the latest issue of Production Weekly. Obi-Wan Kenobi star Ewan McGregor recently noted that the Star Wars series would go into pre-production later this year before explaining how excited he was to step back into the Jedi role.
According to Publication Weekly, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series’ working title is “Pilgrim.” Although that initially doesn’t reveal much about what to expect from the Star Wars series, a pilgrim is someone travelling to a holy place, so it’s possible we might see Ewan McGregor’s Jedi searching for more answers about the Force following Revenge of the Sith.
