It was recently reported that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be delayed because the scripts will be reworked and the crew were reportedly sent home, as stated by Collider. However, not only did The Hollywood Reporter confirm the news, the outlet also revealed that the show would be reduced to even fewer episodes.

THR claims that two scripts were written but the story became an issue, leading to the "entire package" to be "jettisoned." They originally planned for the series to get six episodes, but it will be scaled to four. The outlet also says Lucasfilm is now looking for a new writer to replace Hossein Amini.

The report points out that it isn't clear as to why the script became an issue because another source revealed that the Kenobi series will be somewhat similar to The Mandalorian's story; where the Jedi Master will be "lending a protective hand" to a young Luke and quite possibly even a young Leia. This story could perhaps be "mirroring" how Mando took Baby Yoda "under his protective custody."

While this is unfortunate news, Star Wars fans are still looking forward to the show. After all, Ewan McGregor is still set to play the character and Deborah Chow is also said to still be attached to the show.
