And this is how it will go… slowly, things will start to return to normal and we will be able to carry on with our lives and, while Obi-Wan didn’t halt production because of that damned virus, it nice to report on something starting up again rather than being cancelled.

So, after the Obi-Wan Disney+ series was cancelled a couple of months ago, in January, it looks like it’s getting ready to start up again with a new writer.

Joby Harold, co-writer of Zack Snyder’s upcoming Army of the Dead, has come on board to bring the Jedi back to the Star Wars universe.

The series was originally written by Hossein Amini but the plug was pulled because his script reportedly was too close to the story of The Mandalorian – we’re guessing lone warrior dedicates his life to looking after someone weaker?

Showing that at the time the people controlling Star Wars had no idea what each other were doing, this was a dark time for Star Wars but, like the rest of the world, it looks like we’re going to get through it.

Mandalorian director Deborah Chow is still set to direct but as of yet we have no release date but for McGregor returning as Obi-Wan? We’ll gladly wait.

What say you all?

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….
