Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi begins filming soon

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi begins filming in Los Angeles this spring with director Deborah Chow (Lost in Space) at the helm.

The latest Disney+ live-action Star Wars spin-off sees Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) reprise their roles from George Lucas' prequel trilogy and utilises the Volume, an LED-based virtual set technology developed (by former Lucasfilm staffers) for The Mandalorian.

"It'll just be great to do it again. It's so funny, I did my last one in 2003 and it's such a long time ago and the idea of doing it again now is just more exciting than it was then, I think," McGregor said. "I'm thrilled to get the chance to play him again. I've always felt there was a story about between my ones and Alec Guinness' ones and that's what we're gonna do. It should be really interesting."

Following the cataclysmic events of Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi went into hiding on Tatooine to watch over and protect Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

However, there's scope for interplanetary adventures and a second face-off with Darth Vader! In Return of the Jedi, Vader tells young Skywalker that Kenobi tried to turn him back to the light side of the Force.

Are you looking forward to the new live-action Star Wars spin-off series set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope? Let me know in the comments below.
