Production on the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series got underway just before the new year, and the first photos from the UK set have now found their way online courtesy of The Sun.
While the aerial shots don't feature Ewan McGregor or any other cast members, they do provide us with a glimpse of what looks like a partially-constructed alien village. The set doesn't call to mind any particular location we may have previously visited in the galaxy far, far away, but the design of the buildings is unmistakably Star Wars-like.
At any rate, this doesn't appear to be Tatooine, which would seem to confirm that we won't be staying on the desert planet for the duration of the series.
Unfortunately, the construction of such a huge set has resulted in a lot of complains from residents in the nearby village of Little Marlow, Bucks, as locals are said to be up in arms about wildlife being disturbed, light pollution and an increase in traffic. This is not expected to impede filming, however.
UPDATE: Although several follow-up reports from fans near the set maintain that it is Obi-Wan Kenobi that's shooting, some of the buildings look very similar to what we saw on the set of Andor last year. We'll update again once we've been able to confirm.
Specific plot details for Obi-Wan Kenobi remain under wraps, but we do know that Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader for a confrontation with his old master. There are also rumors that younger versions of both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa will appear, but that's yet to be confirmed.
