It seems production on Lucasfilm’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series is finally gaining steam. According to insider Daniel Richtman, the show will start shooting early next year in the United Kingdon and Boston.
The series was initially set to begin filming in March; however, in January, production was delayed indefinitely. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was reportedly unhappy with the show’s scripts. Additionally, the global pandemic has made filming nearly impossible.
Thankfully it seems the studio has finally worked out a plan to begin work on the series. The exact start date is currently unknown, but it is exciting that by next year production will be underway.
In addition to the production start date, Richtman also revealed that the show is casting a new female lead. The Obi-Wan show is reportedly looking to cast an actress in their 20s-30s of any ethnicity. Much of the plot of the series is unknown, so, for now, fans will have to speculate if this could be a pre-existing character or someone new to the Star Wars universe.
The show will supposedly feature flashbacks to Obi-Wan’s past and could include appearances from actor Hayden Christensen and the character of Darth Vader. How significant a role they will play in the series is to be determined, but it will still be interesting to see how Obi-Wan’s past will affect him in the show.
