Ewan McGregor Downplays Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Delay Rumors - "it's not really as dramatic as it might seem"

Jay Cochran - January 24, 2020
The news that hit the net late yesterday that the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-alone series which would star Ewan McGregor was being delayed due to script problems is being downplayed by the actor who spoke with Variety shortly after the news broke.

“I think we start shooting early next year as opposed to summer this year,” Ewan McGregor, who will reprise his role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the series, told Variety at the “Birds of Prey” fan event at Hollywood and Highland. “I think the scripts are great. They’re in really good shape. They want them to be better. I think we keep our same airdate. All good.” He went on to say, “I didn’t realize until we got here tonight and everybody is going, ‘Oh, my god!, but it’s not really as dramatic as it might seem.

The initial reports have indicated that the series is facing greater problems over needing better scripts than McGregor lets on. It's hard to say if the actor is being truthful about the issues being as problematic as they seem or if he is simply trying to do some damage control for the studio, my guess is it's the later, but we will just have to wait and see.
