We all know that people will be fine with watching Baby Yoda and Mando scoot around the Star Wars universe in perpetuity. This is totally fine, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. However, this is Star Wars, and as long as there is money to be made, the world will keep seeing new sequels and spinoffs in the ‘galaxy.’

It looks like Disney+’s long-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone series will start filming in March. Ewan McGregor confirmed this on The Graham Norton Show. He even teased a little bit about his mindset going back on the series that will be directed by Deborah Chow as the legendary Jedi.

McGregor says that this time, he is much closer in age to him. It will be his challenge to try and meet him somewhere. He loves Alec Guinness, and he never got to meet him but he loves his work, him, and he thinks it’s a great honor to try and pretend to be him.

The New Obi-Wan Show

While Disney has been super-secret about their new untitled Disney+ series, one thing is for sure — the fans are extremely excited about the return of the legendary Jedi. There is a good reason for this — new details regarding the Star Wars show have confirmed that the series will tackle a very legendarily mysterious and momentous period in the history of the franchise: Kenobi’s years on Tatooine between A New Hope and Revenge of the Sith.

The Force Is Strong With Obi-Wan Kenobi

Disney recently announced that the show would take place eight years after Sith. It’s based on some estimates regarding the place of Rogue One in the Star Wars timeline that puts the Obi-Wan show right in the middle of the New Hope and Sith. This also means that the series could potentially span 10 whole years of the life of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

There is no official date set for McGregor’s big return in the Star Wars universe. All that is revealed is that the series will start filming this March, making it likely that the fans will be able to enjoy the finished product sometime in 2022.
