It’s been revealed by one of the directors of Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi series that it’s still in development despite Lucasfilm’s silence.
I – like many of you, I’m sure – have been rather worried about the state of the Kenobi TV show which was supposed to be coming to Disney Plus.
A couple of months back it was all good as the Kenobi series was concerned, and then there were reports that the production had been postponed.
This was before Coronavirus and it was reported that Lucasfilm executives wanted the rewrite some of the scripts.
Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and we didn’t hear a peep out of Lucasfilm or Disney about the Disney Plus series.
That’s changed recently as the show’s executive producer and director, Deborah Chow revealed that the show was still in development.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is still going ahead
This comes after it was reported that the untitled Kenobi series had been put on pause indefinitely back in January.
Chow revealed this during a pre-recorded Mandalorian panel which aired during a live stream at this year’s ATX Festival (via ComicBook.com).
Taika Waititi joked that he was “all finished” with his recently announced Star Wars film.
Then Chow spoke of her Obi-Wan Kenobi series and said: “We have a little more to do than that, but we’re in development.”
