Announcements

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 will reprise his role.[3] On March 29, 2021, Lucasfilm revealed the main cast of the series.[5]

On May 11, 2021, McGregor confirmed that filming had officially begun.[14]

Filming officially wrapped on August 16, 2021.[15]

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.[16]

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.[17]

On April 22, 2022, Vanity Fair reported that Natalie Holt would compose the score for the series.[18]
