It looks as though the great Ewan McGregor will finally get a chance to play his iconic role as the legendary Star Wars Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi again. According to Star Wars News Net, Lucasfilm and Disney are planning on bringing the beloved character to the small screen with a six-part limited series centered on the character sometime between the events of Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.
The time period between episodes three and four with concern to Kenobi has interested fans for years. With only small details and some key story points highlighted in novels, comics, and animated series. Fans have longed to see the live-action version of Kenobi finally finishing off Maul, while looking over a young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Not to mention him having to deal with the wretched hive of scum and villainy that exist on the two sunned desert planet controlled by the Hutts.
The series would be released on Disney’s brand new Netflix style streaming service set to debut late 2019, officially titled Disney Plus, the service will start off $4.99 a month. The Mandalorian will be the first live-action Star Wars series ever released and barring any unforseen terribleness, the series is expected to be a massive hit with fans and film/TV lovers alike.
