OBI-WAN KENOBI Has Started Shooting In Los Angeles; Check Out The First Set Photos From The Series
Filming has officially begun on Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and we have some photos from the Los Angeles set that take us back to Tatooine and even includes an iconic creature from the Star Wars franchise!
There's a lot of excitement surrounding the Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+, which is no great surprise when it feels like we've been waiting to see this story told forever. Originally planned as a movie, the show has been through a few different creative teams, but will now be helmed by The Mandalorian's Deborah Chow.
Thanks to Kessel Run Transmissions' Noah Outlaw, we now know that cameras have started rolling on the series. These shots don't reveal much, but we do get to see a little bit of Tatooine and a familiar creature in the form of a Bantha. While the iconic desert planet is bound to be the primary setting for Obi-Wan Kenobi, it's possible the Jedi Master will head off-world at some point as well.
"The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat," reads the Obi-Wan Kenobi synopsis, "the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader."
The cast includes Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie. We don't know when exactly Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on Disney+, but 2022 is likely.
