Ewan McGregor Updates on the Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Series, Possibility of a Standalone Season

Whereas an replace on the Disney+ Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff collection has been overdue for fairly a while, new feedback from its role-reprising headliner, Ewan McGregor, appear to suggest that the present’s 2021-scheduled manufacturing nonetheless has the excessive floor over the proverbial Darkish-Aspect-turned apprentice of delays.  

McGregor paints an auspicious image in regards to the Obi-Wan Kenobi collection in a podcast interview with Empire, which is the newest instance of the dribs and drabs of updates which have been slowly surfacing in regards to the long-gestating challenge. Certainly, set to work below the auspices of director Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian, Misplaced in House), the actor is clearly excited to return to the position he performed within the 1999-2005 Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, persevering with to construct upon a legacy began by Alec Guinness’s portrayal within the Authentic Trilogy. As McGregor lauds of his impending return:

“I’m extra enthusiastic about doing this one than I used to be doing the second and third one which we did earlier than. I’m simply enthusiastic about working with Deborah Chow and the storylines are going to be actually good, I believe. I’m simply excited to play him once more. It’s been lengthy sufficient since I performed him earlier than.”

The replace arrives shortly after a seemingly off-the-cuff remark to ET Online by which McGregor expresses his (for now unconfirmed) perception that the Obi-Wan Kenobi collection might be a single-season occasion, stating, “As I perceive, it’s a standalone season. We’ll see. Who is aware of?” But, potential restricted nature of the collection however, McGregor’s elated Empire feedback additionally level to the technical breakthroughs the present will make the most of, which stand in distinction to business requirements from when he final performed Obi-Wan; one thing that ought to excite cynical Star Wars followers who stay unimpressed by the unreal nature of the prequels’ blue-screen-centric visuals. As he explains:  

“The primary three [Star Wars films] I did have been actually on the very starting of digital images.” He provides, “We had a digicam with an umbilical twine to a tent, it was like again to the start of films the place the digicam didn’t transfer very a lot as a result of there was a lot {hardware} connected to it. Now we’re going to have the ability to actually create stuff with out swathes of green-screen and blue-screen, which turns into very tedious for the actor.”

Whereas McGregor’s pleasure over reprising Obi-Wan could be attributed to the 15 years which have handed for the reason that launch of climactic 2005 Star Wars Prequel Trilogy nearer Revenge of the Sith, it may also be defined by the delays which have hit the challenge. In spite of everything, it was initially set as a theatrically-aimed function movie; a plan that was ultimately nixed after the underwhelming efficiency of 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story uncovered the finitude of the franchise’s field workplace clout. Thusly, the challenge took form as a serial providing for the Disney+ streaming platform, as confirmed on the D23 Expo again in August 2019 with the official announcement of the Obi-Wan collection and McGregor’s return. Nevertheless, the collection hit a snag in January 2020 with the dismissal of writer Hossein Amini, ensuing within the heralded manufacturing being placed on maintain till January 2021; a transfer that really proved fortuitous with the eventual COVID outbreak. Whereas the next April noticed Disney faucet Amini’s screenwriting substitute, Joby Harold (Military of the Lifeless, Underground), the challenge has been in stasis because the script was rewritten.
