It looks like Ob-Wan Kenobi has started preparing for its upcoming shoot. Ewan McGregor confirmed that they were eyeing a production start in late Spring. As a guest on Eddie Izzard‘s A Run For Hope marathon, he confirmed that they will film in Los Angeles after Boston and the United Kingdom were rumored. Well, it looks like some videos have found their way of what looks like a recreation of Tatooine from the Kenobi‘s set. The TikTok video got shared by Twitter user @ewanskenobii. It seems that someone from the set filmed the video while adding the iconic Cantino music on it.

It looks like the set isn’t quite done yet, as they are still preparing for the production start. The Mandalorian has used generic locations to film different scenes. It is uncertain how long the story will focus on Tatooine, as awe could see the iconic Jedi travel throughout the galaxy for one last quest. It makes sense that the iconic planet from A New Hope would make an appearance. It’ll be interesting to see a young Skywalker growing up on a farm.
They could also reveal how Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to age drastically in 19 years or how he became known as Ben Kenobi by the locals. There are a lot of plot threads that could be explored in the story. We know that Hayden Christensen is returning. It is uncertain how he might tie into the story either appearing as a young Darth Vader, or he might even haunt Kenobi as his biggest falure. It’ll be interesting to see how they continue his story.
