This week, reports suggest that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will start production as early as next month. The Star Wars series has experienced some delays and hiccups involving their scripts but it seems like the production wheels are finally turning and we finally have some set photos from the upcoming series.
MSW reports that the Kenobi series will film in September in Southern California. The sequence will be shot in a "train yard," making use of the Tatooine sets used for The Mandalorian.
The outlet points out that the location was mainly used for exterior shooting on past Star Wars projects. While Ewan McGregor himself isn't in these set photos, it's exciting to know that the series is seemingly gearing up for production. You can check out the images here!
LRM has corroborated the former outlet's report, claiming that while filming will start next month, the main cast won't begin work until 2021 at Pinewood Studios. MSW speculates that scenes involving the Old Kenobi will allow a double for McGregor, as the character wears a hood most of the time. The Kenobi series is said to also make use of The Volume, the video screen stage used in The Mandalorian.
We may not have seen something in action yet, but it is exciting to have these set photos. Fans have been clamoring to see Kenobi content since the series was released so these images ought to get them excited.
No release date for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ show has been announced yet.
