UPDATE: Kenobi Series for Disney+ Reportedly on Hold
UPDATE: Last night Ewan McGregor himself weighed in on the the reports that his upcoming Disney+ series about Obi-Wan Kenobi had been put on hold. in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor reassured Star Wars fans that the show is overall in a good place and will still be going forward:
“The scripts are really, really good. They want to make them better…and they just slid the production to shooting next year. It’s not as dramatic as it sounds. We’re airing on the same day and all that stuff.”
Our original post on the story:
According to several sources tonight including The Hollywood Reporter and SlashFilm, The Disney+ live action Star Wars series about Obi-Wan Kenobi staring Ewan McGregor has been put on hold.
While there has been no official confirmation yet from Disney or Lucasfilm, the alleged reason for what people are referring to as a ‘pause’ is script issue. Also, the number of episodes is rumored to be changing, from the originally planned six episodes down to only four.
Again, none of this has been confirmed but as soon as more information becomes available we will pass it along.
