Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series finds a new writer

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series, starring Ewan McGregor (The Phantom Menace) as the titular character, was put on hiatus earlier this year. However, a new writer has been tapped for the live-action Star Wars spin-off, which will join The Mandalorian and Rogue One prequel on Disney+.

The Hollywood Reporter (THR) reports Joby Harold will be the writer. Harold is known for executive producing John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, as well as producing King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Trumbo.

Lucasfilm announced Deborah Chow will direct the new live-action Star Wars series. Chow, who recently worked on stablemate The Mandalorian, has also directed episodes of Mr Robot, American Gods, Jessica Jones, Fear the Walking Dead, Better Call Saul and The Man in the High Castle.

“We really wanted to select a director who is able to explore both the quiet determination and rich mystique of Obi-Wan in a way that folds seamlessly into the Star Wars saga,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a press release.

“Based on her phenomenal work developing our characters in The Mandalorian, I’m absolutely confident Deborah is the right director to tell this story.”

Looking forward to the Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off series? Let me know in the comments below.
