In an interview with ET Online, McGregor confirmed that the upcoming series is set to begin shooting in Spring 2021 and expressed he’s “ really excited about it ” and that “ it’s gonna be great, I think ” while also revealing a potential surprising bit about the project. “As I understand, it’s a standalone season,” McGregor stated. “ We’ll see. Who knows?”
McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan in the series, set to take place eight years after the events of Revenge of the Sith , where we last saw Obi-Wan delivering the infant Luke Skywalker to his Tatooine homestead. The series will be directed by Deborah Chow. Chow, Amini, and McGregor will serve as executive producers alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Tracey Seaward ( The Queen ), and John Swartz ( Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ). Jason McGatlin, Lucasfilm’s Executive Vice President Production, will serve as co-producer.
