A video has surfaced online that apparently shows the Tatooine set of Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The story begins 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor reprising his role as the Jedi Master he played in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and he will be joined by Hayden Christensen, who is also set to return as Darth Vader. The series also stars Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. The rest of the cast includes Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Deborah Chow (Better Call Saul, American Gods, The Mandalorian) will direct the series as well as serve as showrunner, with Hossein Amini (Drive, McMafia) and Joby Harold (John Wick 3, Awake, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) writing.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Chow, McGregor, and Harold. The series will be shot using the same stagecraft technology that the filmmakers on The Mandalorian have utilized.
