    I hope it's just a miniseries. I don't think you need a whole show on Obi Wan as much as I love the character

    I agree. If he has five seasons worth of adventures, it kind of diminishes the point of him being in hiding. The more people he encounters, the likelier it would be for his cover to be blown. Bad enough he still used the name Kenobi anyway. :o

    But a 6-8 episode miniseries that covers a relatively long span of years between ROTS and ANH is fine by me.

    I hope this does well if they move forward with it. Though given the track record with Lucas established characters I'm not expecting much.

    Honestly I sort of wish they would abandon this in favor of more original stories like the Mandalorian. Wouldn't mind him in a flashback if they did an Ahsoka series though.

    I think Obi-Wan makes sense to do a movie/show about. McGregor is a great age for the role, and they have 30 years worth of stuff between ROTS me RO/ANH to tell story’s about. I can’t wait for this one.

    Ewan still looks great for his age. They can even have this series take place 3-5 years after Revenge of the Sith if they want

    Filming begins in March, Hayden will be playing Vader, Kennedy is pitching it as the "rematch of the century."

    Playing Vader...he'll be in the suit? Because we already know what Darth Vader sounds like.

    I'm not worried about the details right now. Hayden and Ewan together again brings warm feelings to my heart. I need this show in my life soon lol

    I'm happy that Vader v Kenobi will be the focus of the series. Obi Wan looking out for a young Luke Skywalker would feel too much like The Mandalorian.

    But didn’t Obi-Wan not see Vader again til New Hope? I don’t understand how there can be a rematch when the rematch was in Episode IV
