Is there an Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+?

March 26th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Well, hello there…

So, among the rumours of an Ewoks series, a Yoda series and others in development at Lucasfilm/Disney to appear on the Disney+ subscription service, one stands out and we have to back it because we can actually see it happening.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Series.

Yes, please.

You may recall that before Solo: A Star Wars Story took a major nosedive in the money-making department (despite being pretty good) an Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story movie was set to film this April with Stephen Daldry helming.

Then Disney, scared by Solo’s non-money-making, pulled out and cancelled it.

Well, it seems Obi-Wan is alive and well in the Star Wars universe, but he may have a different home now.

Now Star Wars News are reporting: “We were told that an Obi-Wan Kenobi limited TV series is happening, is the next top priority for the Disney+ streaming service, and that it could be as many as six episodes.”

Is this why Ewan McGregor was at the Solo premiere? Is this what Bob Iger meant when he said they were ‘rethinking their approach’ to the Star Wars universe? Who knows…

But I will say this, i do NOT have a bad feeling about this.

Watch this space and let me know what you think below.


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….
