STAR WARS OBI-WAN KENOBI Spin-off Will Reportedly Begin Production in 2019


It wasn't too long ago that we learned that Disney and Lucasfilm are working on a spinoff film for Obi-Wan Kenobi, but now we're actually hearing when the standalone is scheduled to begin production.

Omega Underground reports that filming is set to begin at Pinewood Studios UK sometime in January of 2019, putting it on track for a 2020 release. Pinewood has been used a lot in bringing the galaxy far, far away to life.

It's still way too early to know what the plot might be; In fact, we may not know much about that until the film actually is released, but many speculate that the story will take place following the events of Revenge of the Sith and follow the Jedi master's adventures on Tatooine up until old Ben appears again in A New Hope.

It is also not confirmed that Ewan McGregor will reprise his iconic role as Kenobi, but the actor has repeatedly expressed interest. Knowing how rabid Star Wars fans are, it would be pretty surprising if Disney/Lucasfilm does not go above and beyond to get McGregor to star.
