OBI-WAN KENOBI - Ewan McGregor Reveals How Long He's Known About The Series And How Many Episodes It Will Be

There's been speculation for years that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie was in the works, and while it will now take the form of a Disney+ TV series, it turns out Ewan McGregor has known about it for a long time.

Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi series was finally made 100% official back in August, but rumours about the existence of a movie featuring Ewan McGregor reprising the role have persisted for years. Now, the actor has revealed that he's known about plans for the character's story to continue for quite a long time!

"It’s a f**ing massive relief," he said of the show finally being made public knowledge. "Because for four years, I’ve been having to lie to people about it." That means he was likely filled in about Lucasfilm's plans around the time he recorded his voice cameo in The Force Awakens.
 
The actor went on to confirm that the series starts shooting next summer and will consist of six one-hour episodes. In terms of story details, he revealed that "The storyline sits between Episode III and Episode IV," shortly after the collapse of the Jedi Order. He also strongly hinted that the fallout from Anakin's actions and Order 66 will play a large role in the story.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is set to be directed by Deborah Chow. Beyond that, we have no idea who else will star in it, but Joel Edgerton has strongly hinted that he'll be back as Owen Lars.

Are you guys looking forward to this Disney+ show?
