There have been rumors about the series for years, and according to Cinelinx's sources on August 16, 2019, the concept of the series is moving to the Disney+ streaming service. It has also been reported that McGregor has signed on to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a role he inherited from Alec Guinness and played in the prequel films. An official announcement was made during the Disney D23 event on August 23, with Ewan McGregor confirming that he would reprise his role.[1]

On March 29, 2021, Lucasfilm revealed the main cast of the series.

On May 11, 2021, McGregor confirmed that filming had officially begun.

Filming officially wrapped on August 16, 2021.[2]

According to Kathleen Kennedy, the original scripts were far too bleak, and production had to be paused in order to do a rewrite that gives the series a more hopeful and uplifting story.[3]

On February 17, 2022, Variety reported that John Williams scored the theme music for the series, while the composer for the series has yet to be determined.[4]

On April 22, 2022, Vanity Fair reported that Natalie Holt would compose the score for the series.[5]

While they are successful in freeing Leia, Tala's cover is blown, and their presence is revealed. They eventually escape with the help of Path commander Roken and his guerilla troops.

Tracking the Path to their hideout, Vader promotes Reva to Grand Inquisitor and has her lay siege on the facility. Stalling for time, Obi-Wan confronts Reva and deduces that she knows Vader's true identity because she witnessed his massacre in the Jedi temple as a Youngling. Reva reveals to him that she does not wish to serve Vader but kill him for revenge. The facility is breached and Tala sacrifices herself to save Obi-Wan. Realizing there is no way to win, Obi-Wan surrenders and is taken to Reva. There, he convinces Reva to assassinate Vader when she delivers Kenobi to him. Meanwhile, Leia is able to repair the doors, allowing the Path to evacuate just as Vader arrives inside the cave. Reva uses this opportunity to sneak up and attack Vader, but is quickly overpowered after a brief duel and is stabbed by him. The original Grand Inquisitor reappears, revealed to be alive. He takes the Grand Inquisitor badge from Reva before they both leave her for dead. While Obi-Wan, Leia & the Path network leave the planet, an injured Reva finds Obi-Wan’s transmitter and sees Bail Organa's message, pointing her to Tatooine.

While Reva has arrived on Tatooine looking for Luke, Vader pursues Obi-Wan and the Path in his Star Destroyer. Realizing there is no other way, Obi-Wan separates from the group so that the Path can escape. He fights Vader alone on a nearby planet and damages Vader‘s breathing device, rendering him unable to continue. Convinced that Anakin cannot be saved, he leaves Vader behind, just like he did before. Meanwhile, Reva has arrived at Owen's farm and is fought by Owen and Beru. She pursues Luke into the desert, but cannot bring herself to kill him and eventually returns him to his family. Obi-Wan congratulates her for overcoming her past and the Dark Side. Back on Alderaan, Leia has found new resolve in her duties as a princess. A visiting Obi-Wan assures the Organas that he will help when he is needed and bids Leia farewell. Upon his return to Tatooine, he assures Owen that he will allow Luke to grow up as a regular boy and is permitted to meet him for the first time. Having found his inner peace, he is finally able to see and speak to the spirit of his deceased master, Qui-Gon Jinn. On Mustafar, a restored Vader abandons his search for Obi-Wan after the Emperor questions his motives.
