Ewan McGregor confirms that the Obi-Wan series was originally about Luke Skywalker and Ben

At one point, Obi-Wan was developed in Lucasfilm as a movie trilogy, after a eponymous Jedi who protects a young Luke Skywalker from the Tusken Raiders on the Tatooine. After Solo bombarded fans and critics alike, the Kathleen Kennedy-led studio halted future films in hopes of a better solution.

With the advent of Disney+, which gave the costume the opportunity to tell longer stories in the form of TV shows. Obi Wan It was quickly advertised as one of those shows, initially borrowing from the heavily neglected film. While the series released on Disney+ focused on Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and his journey through the universe to help a young Leia Organa (Vivien Lyra Blair), the show focused almost entirely on Obi-Wan and Luke.

McGregor said while highlighting a plaque at FAN EXPO Boston on Sunday.

“That’s the beautiful thing about how passionate about Disney, Lucasfilm, all of us, who have been involved from the start is that we try really hard not to let anything bad just to protect your experience of seeing it for the first time,” he added. “I think it’s really cool that Disney and Lucasfilm care so much about the fan experience. They really want you to have a 100% experience the first time you see it, and if you’ve read that, and it got leaked, and it came out, it’s just An unfortunate thing, isn’t it? It’s like looking at your Christmas presents before Christmas Day.”

While the show was initially conceived as a limited series, Kennedy has since said that the studio has talked about doing a second season due to the fan response.

“Mainly because everyone got together and had such a great time,” Kennedy said earlier this year. “Ewan had a great time. Hayden had a great time.” “Sure, from this point of view, everyone involved would like to see this never ending. But we should really spend our time asking: Why do we do this? If we decide to do anything more with the Obi-Wan character, we must answer Really on the question why?”

Obi-Wan Kenobi It is now streaming on Disney+.
