Remember the Obi-Wan Kenobi stand alone / Star Wars Story project? Well it appears to have fresh legs and has morphed from a stand alone film to a six part mini-series coming to the Disney Plus streaming service. Fans might recall that the project was put on the back burner after the lackluster box office haul from Solo. Perhaps now that season one of The Mandalorian has wrapped they've realized they can do more with less and make the content available through their streaming service ditching traditional theater distribution. This would be the third live action series for Disney Plus if confirmed behind The Mandalorian, and one involving Cassian Andor (Rogue One prequel). So where did this new information surface? SWNN, who have some pretty reliable sources are reporting -
Perhaps the most talked about and rumor-fueled wishlist item among Star Wars fans and media has been an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone project. Well it sounds like that wish may have finally come true, but not how we envisioned it.
We were told that an Obi-Wan Kenobi limited TV series is happening, is the next top priority for the Disney+ streaming service, and that it could be as many as six episodes.
The Kenobi project was initially supposed to be a film, as had been reported several times over the last few years, but everything changed after the disappointing box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. We were told that the Kenobi film was actually supposed to start production shortly after Solo premiered, and then everything changed. This certainly puts much more clarity on that famous Bob Iger “rethinking our approach” statement from last year.
