Obi-Wan Kenobi is an upcoming miniseries created for the streaming service Disney+, featuring the Star Wars character. Set ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, the series is directed by Deborah Chow.
Ewan McGregor executive produces and stars as the title character, reprising his role from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Hayden Christensen, Joel Edgerton, and Bonnie Piesse also reprise their roles from the prequel trilogy. The project originated as a spin-off film to be written by Hossein Amini and directed by Stephen Daldry. McGregor was confirmed to be starring in August 2019, and Chow was hired to direct a month later. Production was scheduled to begin in July 2020, but the series was put on indefinite hold in January 2020 because Lucasfilm was unhappy with the series’ scripts. Harold was hired to rewrite the series in April 2020, and additional castings were announced in March 2021. Filming began by May 2021 in Los Angeles, using StageCraft video wall technology, and wrapped by September. Star Wars film composer John Williams wrote the main theme for the series.
The two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are set to premiere on May 27, 2022, and thereafter it will consist of four more episodes.
