There have been so many rumors surrounding the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars Obi-Wan series. We’ve already seen the original scripts get tossed and new people assigned to the production.
Now, according to Production Weekly, the title for the new show will be ‘PILGRIM.’
Rumors about the story line of the new Obi-wan series would focus on loss and trauma. He’s hiding from Vader and the Empire. He thinks he killed his friend. He has to watch over Luke from afar. It’s a lot of exile and change for him.
The new show will start filming next year, which has been pushed back from this year. Ewan McGregor commented about it recently on Good Morning America:
“We start shooting at the very beginning of next year, they’re in pre-production from this summer, there are scripts that I’ve read that are really good, they’re continuing to write on them to make them even better, and we start very early next year. And I’m excited about it. I think the last one I shot was in 2003, so it’s been a while. It’ll just be there, I think. Also, I’m reminding myself by watching their new films and The Mandalorian and stuff, I really enjoyed. I keep myself as current as I can with the Lucasfilm world. I don’t think it will take two minutes; I’ll put the cloak back on and I’ll be there, I think.”
McGregor has been keeping himself current on the films and shows to prepare and I think that’s great. I am very excited to see him return to Star Wars as Obi-wan Kenobi.
We have rumors that both an Expanded Universe character named Sharad Hett and prequel trilogy character Jar Jar Binks could return for this show. But as of now everything is just rumor.
