In this Star Wars news update, we talk about big news for Obi-Wan Kenobi – there have been more set leaks of Tatooine. Lucasfilm are bringing the series to Disney+ next year. We also discuss Ewan McGregor who has opened up about the Star Wars prequels, George Lucas and toxic Star Wars fans. He reflects on playing Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi after 16 years since the last time we saw him in Revenge of the Sith.
We also talk about the new Darth Vader Star Wars comic which takes him to Exegol with Emperor Palpatine – he discovers his cloning plans and we see a variety of Snoke clones in tanks like we saw in the Rise of Skywalker and in the Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 12 “The Siege” with Cara Dune (Gina Carano). It could tie into the sequel trilogy and involve Grogu – Baby Yoda whose blood Moff Gideon and potentially Grand Admiral Thrawn are after.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi Series is an upcoming Star Wars, Lucasfilm and Disney+ series that was announced by Kathleen Kennedy during Disney Investor Day 2020. It is set 10 years after Revenge of the Sith and will be the rematch of the century between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. Hayden Christensen has been cast to reprise his role as newly anointed Darth Vader in the wake of the creation of the Galactic Empire under the rule of Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine). The series will feature Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan during his exile on Tatooine.
