Star Wars fans are getting hyped for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, especially after seeing the overall popularity The Mandalorian has been getting since its premiere. Deborah Chow directed the third episode of the series, which got fans excited on how she’ll take on the Jedi Master’s story. And now, the director shares her plans for the highly-anticipated series.

Chow recently had an interview with the New York Times where she talked about the fans’ immense adoration for Baby Yoda, and how she developed some of the scenes in the third episode. In the process, Chow was also asked regarding the lessons she learned from The Mandalorian that she could take in making the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Chow admits that she had the “biggest benefit” of having great mentors, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. “Absorbing that, I feel, was the best training I could have had to take on the next one,” she added. She claims that every detail matters, every prop, and every costume is essential. “So much of it just feeling it and understanding it,” Chow said. Including knowing what’s right and wrong on an “instinctual level.”

The interviewer also asked the director on what “adorable baby character” the Obi-Wan series would have. Chow laughed before answering the question, but she claims that she can’t talk about Obi-Wan yet. But she doesn’t think that “the baby will be coming with us.” She jokingly admits that the baby “steals the show.”

It has already been revealed that the storyline will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Star Wars fans are surely excited and curious to know more about what happened to the Jedi Master during those times, and can’t wait for more details regarding the show.

For now, there’s no release date set for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series yet. However, fans can stream Star Wars: The Mandalorian in the meantime, which is now on its fourth episode.
