After several years of requests from fans and Ewan McGregor himself, the actor who played Obi – Wan Kenobi in episodes I, II and III of the saga and in the series, the one with the history of the jedi was finally confirmed by Disney.
The series does not have a premiere date yet, but it has a date to start production in 2021. And the wait will be worth it. After the success of the series, another in the universe of that caught the attention of the internet by bringing Baby Yoda, Disney seems to be willing to bet all its chips on series like these.
