Filming For Disney+ Obi Wan Kenobi Series Starts Next March

Ewan McGregor has revealed that filming for the upcoming Disney+ Obi Wan Kenobi spin-off will start shooting in March next year.

Production on the eagerly anticipated series was pushed back due to the coronavirus but McGregor has now confirmed that there's not too long of a wait until filming begins.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, McGregor said: "It's the Obi-Wan Kenobi story, I suppose.

"It's not all me, but it certainly will be a lot of me, which is good! We start shooting it in March of next year."

He told ACE Universe: "That would be fun. That would get my vote. But we'll see, I don't know yet what it's going to be called."

McGregor will be reprising his role of Obi-Wan - having first played the character all the way back in 1999 in The Phantom Menace, he then signed on for two sequels (Attack of the Clones in 2002 and Revenge of the Sith in 2005).
