Variety reports that during an appearance on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show, Ewan McGregor revealed that production will begin on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ in March.

He said: “It’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi story, I suppose. It’s not all me, but it certainly will be a lot of me, which is good. We start shooting it in March next year.The fun thing about doing that in the first place when I was much younger was trying to imagine Alec Guinness, how would he play these scenes as a younger guy? It led me to watch some of his earlier work, which I had never seen before. Brilliant movies, wonderful films that he’d been in, and I had such a great time studying him in those movies.
