Attention “Star Wars” superfans: we’ve got some more details about the all-new Obi-Wan Kenobi series that’s been confirmed for Disney+.
Less than a week after Disney announced an all-new Obi-Wan Kenobi series during the Disney+ panel at D23 Expo (remember when Ewan McGregor himself took to the stage at the event?), they’re now sharing even more information about what we can expect in the show. Specifically, we just found out that the series will take place eight years after the events from the film “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.”
During a recent episode of “The Star Wars Show,” which was filmed at D23 Expo, host Anthony Carboni shared where the upcoming Obi-Wan series will fit in the “Star Wars” timeline.
“The untitled series is set eight years after the events of ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and will go into production next year,” Carboni said, before jokingly adding, “It’s only set eight years after because that’s how much older he’s [Ewan McGregor] gotten in the past 20 years.”
Unfortunately, that’s pretty much everything we know about the untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi show for Disney+: when it takes place, and when filming will begin. And unfortunately, it seems like we’ll have to wait quite a while before we actually get to see McGregor back in action as Obi-Wan again. But that doesn’t make us any less excited.
And apparently, we’re not the only ones pumped to see the new show. When the series was first announced on stage at the Disney+ panel at D23 Expo, McGregor seemed so excited to share the news of the series, he asked Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy to ask him if he’s doing the new show just so he could say “yes!” And just by saying “yes,” McGregor was able to garner more than enough cheers from the crowd to prove just how happy we all are to finale see one of our favorite characters return to the small screen.
Like we mentioned before, we hardly know anything about the new show. But we want to know your predictions!
