Well, after a back and forth rumor mill last week, it seems there was some fire with the smoke surrounding the status of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the series has been put on hold, as they look to find a new writer to pen the scripts:
Disney+ and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars series centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi has been put on hold as the companies attempt a retooling, multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The series, which sees Ewan McGregor reprise his role of the famed Jedi Knight, was in the throes of pre-production.
Sources tell THR that the scripts – only two were written – and story became an issue and that the entire package has been jettisoned. Lucasfilm is now on the hunt for a new writer to pen the series. At the same time, sources say the series is being reconfigured from being six episodes to four episodes
