In this Star Wars news update, we talk about big news for Obi-Wan Kenobi – there have been more set leaks and Star Wars fans are amazed. Lucasfilm haven’t confirmed anything but the footage could be for The Mandalorian Season 3 or even the Book of Boba Fett. For the Mandalorian Season 2, there was leaked footage which fans didn’t believe but turned out to be the episode directed by Robert Rodriguez with Baby Yoda (Grogu) on the rock of Tython when Mando (Pedro Pascal – Din Djarin) takes him there at the advice of Ahsoka Tano.
