Ewan McGregor set for Obi-Wan series on Disney+?

May 29th, 2019 by Marc Comments

While this will not really be a surprise to anyone as we’ve all been hoping for a while now that Ewan McGregore would return as Obi-Wan Kenobi at some point in the future.

However, pre-Solo: A Star Wars Story, we had hoped we’d get a movie but after that movie failed and the future of Star Wars standalone movies seemed unlikely our hopes and dreams turned to the upcoming Disney+ streaming service for the potential future of my favourite Jedi.

And now a new new rumour seems to duggest that yes, McGregor IS set to return as Obi-Wan for a limited run TV series on Disney+.

“An industry insider recently revealed to We Got This Covered that Disney is not only planning to bring Obi-Wan to their streaming service, in a brand new series, but it’ll also see the return of McGregor to the franchise. Details are scarce right now, but it seems the House of Mouse is planning to make an official announcement in the near future.”

The ‘insider’ also seems to imply that a Boba Fett series is also in the works – remember that Boba Fett came very close to getting his own movie a few years back – so it seems that Disney are now looking toard the small screen as much, if not more, than the big screen to keep Star Wars alive and relevant.

Now that is exciting news… if I hear more, you’ll hear more too.

Thoughts?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
