Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series appears to have wrapped production, according to new reports and cast members sharing the news on social media. The upcoming limited series has made one step closer to redefining the Star Wars universe and Skywalker saga.
The Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+ centered around Obi-Wan Kenobi’s transformation into Ben Kenobi and the aftermath of Anakin Skywalker’s fall to the dark side seems to have finished principal filming — or is at least close to it.
While Lucasfilm hasn’t officially stated that Kenobi has wrapped on production, the series could already be done filming, and the studio wants to keep it under wraps.
Confirming these reports, Game of Thrones actress Indira Varma flat out posted a “thank you” to the cast and crew of Kenobi in a recent Instagram post:
“Being part of this amazing beast Obi-Wan Kenobi has been a trip. Fabulous cast of lovely people. Brilliant director Deborah Chow and the loveliest crew of creatives. I cannot wait to see the result of everyone’s incredible work and talent on screen. Thank you. May the force be with you.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi is reportedly coming to Disney+ in 2022, but Lucasfilm nor Disney has confirmed the official release date of the series.
Star Wars actors Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are returning to reprise their roles of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, respectively.
McGregor and Christensen sharing the screen again 15 years later is undoubtedly the most important Star Wars event in recent years.
The limited series is speculated to feature a jaw-dropped rematch between Kenobi and Skywalker. This time, Darth Vader will be Kenobi’s greatest foe, not his fallen Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker.
