Rumors, announcements and then put on hold again: The news about the series about the Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi represent a real rollercoaster of emotions for Star Wars fans. But now there is finally good news again. Because Ewan McGregor, who last played Obi-Wan in 2005, confirms that the shooting has a start date. In March 2021 he will return to the galaxy far, far away. But we also know: As long as the corona pandemic paralyzes industries worldwide, the data for films and series are not set in stone. Nevertheless, there is already first information about the series that will play after the prequels.

When does the series play with Obi-Wan?

The Obi-Wan series is eight years after "Revenge of the Sith" play in which the Jedi Master had gone into exile on Tatooine, mainly to keep an eye on Luke Skywalker, who was growing up. The director is alone Deborah Chow, for which Star Wars is well-known terrain: She has already sat in the director's chair for two episodes of The Mandalorian. Who, apart from McGregor, will return to a role from the Star Wars films is currently still unknown – but as soon as there is more information, you will find out from us.

Obi-Wan series marks a premiere

As the first Star Wars series, Obi-Wan will feature a protagonist who has already played one of the main roles in the films. The Mandalorian, for example, relies on new characters, with the spin-off series for the spin-off Rogue One also bringing back Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Since this Star Wars production has not even started shooting, we will probably get to see Obi-Wan first.
