Takes Place Eight Years After Revenge Of The Sith
Ewan McGregor will reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for a live-action Star Wars series on Disney+. Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the scripts were written and production would kick off early next year.
Now, The Star Wars Show has confirmed that the series will take place eight years after Star Wars: The Revenge Of The Sith. This timeline would see the Kenobi series exist in canon the same time as Solo: A Star Wars Story.
LMO Author, RunForItMarty has already suggested that we’ll perhaps see Kenobi going after Crimson Dawn. The timelines match, this could be the opportunity for Solo characters to appear. Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Maul: Part 2?
The 2016 novel Ahsoka, explored elements of Obi-Wan’s exile, ultimately depicting his focus on the ways of the Force and his connection with the Force ghost of his former mentor Qui-Gon Jinn. While we won’t expect to see the events of the book lifted directly for the series, we’ll likely see elements of that aspect of the character.
Stay tuned for details on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which is set to begin shooting next year.
