image for 'Star Wars': Ewan McGregor in Talks for an Obi-Wan Kenobi Series for Disney+

No timeline or creative talent for the Kenobi project were revealed.

Kenobi is a central figure in the Star Wars mythos.

In the original 1977 movie, he is a desert-dwelling and war-weary hermit who later proves to be a wise and powerful warrior.

Kenobi briefly mentors a young Luke Skywalker before being cut down by Darth Vader, his former pupil.

The character also played a central role in the George Lucas-directed prequels, which recount the origin of Vader and his betrayal of Kenobi and the Jedis.

McGregor last starred in Disney’s live-action Winnie the Pooh movie, 2017’s Christopher Robin.

McGregor is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer. »
