Ewan McGregor Confirms Obi-Wan Series Starts Shooting Next Spring

Ewan McGregor has spilled some fresh details about the upcoming Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor revealed the new show will start shooting fairly soon.

He said: "Spring next year we start. I'm really excited about it. It's going to be great, I think."

And when pressed for more details he also let slip that, as far as he knows, the spin-off series will be a standalone single season.

McGregor added: "As I understand, it's a standalone season. We'll see. Who knows?"

The 49-year-old first played Obi-Wan back in 1999 in The Phantom Menace and signed on for two sequels Attack of the Clones in 2002 and Revenge of the Sith in 2005.

He's now poised to reprise the role and is pretty excited by the whole thing. In fact, he's more excited to tackle the new episodes than he was to star in the sequels.

Appearing on the Empire Podcast, McGregor said: "I'm more excited about doing this one than I was doing the second and third one that we did before.

And it's not just stepping back into Obi-Wan's shoes he's excited about - McGregor also reckons that filming will be more fun this time around thanks to ever-advancing technology.

"It was technically quite complicated, I remember. It was all blue screen and green screen. It was hard to imagine it [the surroundings].

"I think it's going to feel realer for us, the actors. I don't know if you've seen any of the behind-the scenes Mandalorian series, but they employ that incredible screen and I don't even begin to know how it works, but it's pretty amazing.

"So when you're on set, if you're in a snowscape or something, well when you look around you see that and it makes you feel like you're in the place. It's going to feel realer for us."

As yet the new series doesn't have a release but we'll let you know as soon as the news is announced.
