Ewan McGregor has revealed that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will start shooting in L.A. in late spring, and he revealed this while talking to Eddie Izzard. It’s interesting because before McGregor spoke to Izzard, all the reports were claiming that the Kenobi series was going to be filming in the UK.
However, it looks like the Kenobi series is actually going to be filming in L.A., not the UK, which is interesting. There have been a bunch of Star Wars movies and TV shows filmed in the UK. At the moment they’re filming the Cassian Andor series, and I do believe that a part of that show is being filmed in the UK.
McGregor also revealed that Debora Chow, the series’ director and showrunner, is brilliant to work with, and he also said that it was going to be a lot like the old TV westerns. That is something that I am really excited to see.

Here’s what McGregor revealed about the upcoming Kenobi series whilst speaking to a marathon running Eddie Izzard:
We start making it in the late spring and we’re gonna be shooting it here in L.A. and then not — it’s so funny, every week, there’s a new report. My dad was sending me links, saying, ‘I thought you were shooting it in L.A.’ because there’s another tabloid expose that we’re shooting it in some bizarre town somewhere. Then we’re meant to be making it in Boston and then we’re meant to be making it, no, it wasn’t Boston, Massachusetts, it was Boston, England. But we’re not. We’re shooting it in L.A.
