We’ll have to wait until next year to see it, but multiple sources are reporting that filming has now wrapped on Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+.
As revealed by Bespin Bulletin (via Dark Horizons), cast members Rupert Friend, Sung Kang, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Indira Varma and Simone Kessell have all announced on social media that they’ve finished work on the show and have since moved on to other projects, while LRM Online is claiming that production has wrapped after almost four months of shooting.
The series – which not only marks the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan but also his Prequel Trilogy co-star Anakin Skywalker as Darth Vader – is scheduled to air on Disney+ in 2022 alongside the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story spinoff Star Wars: Andor. Before then, we have The Mandalorian spinoff Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett incoming in December, while a third season of The Mandalorian is set to begin shooting in September and will presumably arrive in late 2022 or 2023.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi begins ten years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is being directed by Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian), with McGregor joined in the cast by Hayden Christensen (Darth Vader), Joel Edgerton (Owen Lars) and Bonnie Piesse (Beru Lars), as well as Star Wars newcomers Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Maya Erskine and Benny Safdie.
