    The story should be Obi-Wan wandering the desert for the entire show, where he starts hallucinating the little stuff animals he created during his down time, are people from the past.

    You can really hear the relief in his voice when he said "Yes." He knows he's never going to have to hear that question again.

    So this has been in development for 4 years and he hasn't been able to tell anyone about and with all the people asking about it all the time, that must have been rough lol.
    Really looking forward to this.
    Other than the novel, are there any other stories (in the comics perhaps) that you think is something that could possibly be adapted for this show?

    Should be interesting!! A little surprised they're not doing a movie but they can probably do more with a TV series.

    I'm really surprised that the scripts are finished, but it's a very welcome surprise. Means they have been at it for a while. My most anticipated Disney/Marvel/Star Wars property in a very long time.

    Hope so. It would be a great chance to see Owen and Obi-Wan interact more, not to mention Ewan and Joel are fantastic actors, and i'd love to see them have a few exchanges.

    This is Ewan on the Ellen show for his movie Dr. Sleep, but of course the subject of the Obi-Wan tv show came up.


    He's looking very Obi-Wansy , I gotta say.

    Talks about reprising the role. Says he's going to watch his own performances and watch Alec Guinness' again too before starting.

    Starts around 6:40.

    After watching episode 3 "The Sin" of The Mandalorian directed by Deborah Chow, who will be the show runner of the Obi Wan series... I'm totally hyped for this! By far my favorite episode, and they all have been spectacular.

    Hearing her talk about her experience on The Mandalorian, and how it will carry over to her Obi Wan show... total excitement.

    Makes sense. We're likely to see a very young Luke at least, even if just glances of Obi-Wan watching over him.

    Saw Ewan at the Golden Globes on sunday. Seems he's sporting a longer-ish hairdo. Wonder if it has to do with the Kenobi show or not, because he has no beard yet.

    After The Mandalorian I absolutely cannot wait for this, especially with Deborah Chow as the show runner. She did a stellar job with her 2 episodes.

    Saw some articles rumoring that Jar Jar Binks may appear in the show. Would be interesting to see how that would work out and the audience reaction to it.

    Count me curious if he is in the show!
