With the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series getting ready to shoot, as the set video leak from the last couple of days made clear, Ewan McGregor is also starting to look the part. With shooting confirmed to be taking place in Los Angeles, McGregor was spotted hanging out in California with the Kenobi beard he famously sported in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll keep the longer hair as well or he’ll cut it before the production starts.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to take place in between episodes III and IV, at a time when Kenobi called Tatooine his home. If the show will be entirely set on that planet is still undisclosed, but the rumors that we will get a few flashbacks to the Clone Wars will most likely become a reality. We might explore his time before we were introduced to the iconic Jedi in The Phantom Menace.
The show is set to reunite McGregor with Hayden Christensen returns to the world of Star Wars to play Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader was confirmed at the 2020 Disney Investor Day presentation. As the production start date approached, Indira Varma and another 9 names were confirmed as being part o the cast, with Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse reprising their roles from the Star Wars Prequels as Luke’s uncles. It’ll be interesting to explore this time that would lead to the moment that Luke started to explore beyond the desert planet he called home.
