OBI-WAN KENOBI Star Ewan McGregor Confirms When And Where The Series Starts Shooting; Jon Favreau Not Involved

Despite speculation that sets have been built in the UK (turns out they were for Andor), Ewan McGregor has now shared some concrete details on what the plan for Obi-Wan Kenobi is. Read on for details...

We've heard conflicting reports about when cameras will start rolling on Obi-Wan Kenobi, and with changes behind-the-scenes and COVID-19, it's no wonder there's so much uncertainty. Thankfully, the Jedi Master himself, Ewan McGregor, has cleared things up during a recent chat with Eddie Izzard.

"We start making it in the late spring and we're gonna be shooting it here in L.A. and not...it's so funny, every week, there's a new report," the actor started. "My dad was sending me links, saying, 'I thought you were shooting it in L.A.' because there's another tabloid expose that we're shooting it in some bizarre town somewhere. Then we're meant to be making it in Boston and then we're meant to be making [it] [in] Boston, England. But we're not. We're shooting it in L.A."

McGregor went on to reiterate that the Disney+ TV series will make use of the same StageCraft technology as The Mandalorian, but confirmed that Jon Favreau isn't creatively involved in any way.

"No, Deborah Chow is directing ours. She directed two episodes of the first Mandalorian series, she's brilliant, and I'm really looking forward to working with her," he confirmed, adding that Obi-Wan Kenobi is akin to "an old-fashioned TV Western."

He also expressed excitement to fill the gaps in the character's story from Revenge of the Sith to A New Hope starring Alec Guinness.
