OBI-WAN KENOBI Disney+ TV Series Now Said To Begin Filming Sooner Than Expected

OBI-WAN KENOBI Disney+ TV Series Now Said To Begin Filming Sooner Than Expected

There's some tremendous news for the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series coming to Disney+ this morning, as it's being reported that the Ewan McGregor-led project will begin filming sooner than we anticipated!

There are a lot of reasons to be excited for the future of Star Wars thanks to Disney+, and Obi-Wan Kenobi is almost certainly somewhere near the top of the list. Ewan McGregor will return to the role after playing the Jedi Master between 1999 and 2005, and the show is expected to tell the story of what happened to him during the years he spent watching over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. 

While that tale has been told before (there's even a novel by John Jackson Miller), it's no longer canon, and rumors have pointed to live-action Clone Wars flashbacks and Darth Vader coming into play.

There's some good news for Obi-Wan Kenobi's start date, as it's being reported - via a listing from the Film & Television Industry Alliance - that the untitled series is set to start shooting on January 4, 2021. Filming will reportedly take place in Boston, Massachusetts as well as London, England.

Lucasfilm is expected to use The Volume (the technology from The Mandalorian) for Obi-Wan Kenobi, so there will be no need to travel to Tunisia in order to bring Luke's home planet to life. 

Plot details are scarce, but if shooting is starting this soon, more could be revealed shortly.
