Ewan McGregor to Return to Star Wars for an Obi-Wan Kenobi Series on Disney+

Disney+ continues to get more and more irresistible. During today’s Disney+ Showcase at D23 Expo, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy took the stage to share all of the content coming to the streaming service from a galaxy far, far away. While we mostly got things we were expecting (like a trailer for The Mandalorian), Kennedy left us with a nice surprise: the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

  • Kennedy was joined on stage by Ewan McGregor, the actor who portrayed the iconic Jedi in all three of the prequel films.
  • The pair announced, to a very delighted crowd, the return of Obi-Wan to the Star Wars franchise and his eventual presence on Disney+.
  • No further details on the series have been shared at this time, but be sure to check back for more information as it becomes available.
