DiscussingFilm.nettalks to screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive, 47 Ronin, Snow White and The Huntsman and The Snowman) about the recently confirmed "Kenobi" series, coming to the Disney+ streaming service. The series is said to be a six-episode limited series, and is scheduled to start filming in July. Like Ewan, Amini had had to remain tight-lipped about the project, but, says he has been involved for almost two years, on and off. You can read more atDiscussingFilm.net.
I wonder if we'll see a young Luke in the series or even a reference to Satine Bicker?
This is a good move for Disney. After bombing the Solo movie, it'll be refreshing to thresh out a story over several episodes in order to expound more on the untouched mythology of Obi Wan, not to mention rendering in live action epic scenes and stories from the comics!
After serving as one of the directors on the upcoming seriesThe Mandalorian, Deborah Chow has now been announced to direct the recently announced series that will focus on Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi eight years after the events ofRevenge of the Sith. iHossein Amini (The Alienist,Drive) was also named as the writer for the series. BothThe MAndalorianand the "Kenobi" series will air on the Disney+ streaming service.'Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stated, We really wanted to select a director who is able to explore both the quiet determination and rich mystique of Obi-Wan in a way that folds seamlessly into the Star Wars saga. Based on her phenomenal work developing our characters in The Mandalorian, Im absolutely confident Deborah is the right director to tell this story.'Chow, Amini, and McGregor will serve as Executive Producers alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Tracey Seaward (The Queen) and John Swartz (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). Jason McGatlin, Lucasfilms Executive Vice President Production, will serve as co-producer.(Source:StarWars.com)
