Following on from his win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series at the Emmys, Ewan McGregor confirmed that filming has wrapped on the upcoming Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series.
“We finished shooting our series, and it was really, really good fun — I really enjoyed working with Deborah Chow. I think it will not disappoint. I think it’s gonna be good. I had a really good time making it, and worked with some really wonderful people, lovely people. The new technology we employed doing it is cool, and it was a different experience than making the original three films that I did.”
