When actor Ewan McGregor originally announced that he was to reprise his role as Obi-Wan at last year’s D23 Expo, fans immediately started speculating what the whole series was going to depict. McGregor and President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, revealed at the Expo that all of the scripts have been written.

What time period could the series visit?

The rumor is that there will be a number of sequences throughout the series going back to the Clone Wars! These sequences are possibly going to be shown as flashback sequences. Star Wars fans are hopeful that this could mean a possible flashback of Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker. We can only hope that this could happen and that it would definitely be epic, even as a flashback!
