The upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series seems to be moving along fairly quickly over at Disney Plus.
Since the announcement was made at D23, things are coming together on the project. The latest news is that Hossein Amini (Drive) will be writing the series. There’s no word on if that means he’s scripting every episode, but he is the first name we’ve heard on the writing site.
In the director’s chair, Deborah Chow has been tapped to direct the series. She has an extensive resume, primarily on TV series such as Better Call Saul, Jessica Jones, Iron First, Star Wars The Mandalorian, and more.
There are quite a few details that are still missing such as when the series will debut, how many episodes it will be, and so on. For now, we know it takes place during the years between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope when Kenobi was living on Tatooine as the hermit, Ben Kenobi. One would assume we will see him leave the planet even if it’s only for a quick jaunt, but we’ll ject have to wait and see.
Some form of project, be it a movie or TV series, following the further adventures of McGregor as Kenobi has been in demand by fans for years. The fact that the Disney Plus platform will finally be an oppurtunity for bucket list projects such as this is fantastic.
Disney Plus will launch on Nov. 12. No word on when Kenobi will air as of yet.
