Crank up the cantina song and pour the blue milk — Ewan McGregor is making his return as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Confirmed Friday at Disney’s D23 Expo, the Star Wars veteran is set to reprise his role as the iconic Jedi Knight in an Obi-Wan centric series for Disney+. The not-yet-titled project reportedly began as plans for a film spin-off in 2017, but was later used as the basis for the streaming service’s third televised Star Wars property.
“We have all the scripts written, we are going to start filming next year, and we are so excited to get started,” noted Lucas Films president Kathleen Kennedy.
McGregor previously appeared as Kenobi in George Lucas’s Star Wars prequel trilogy, from 1999 to 2005, and later voiced Kenobi for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015.
No word yet on the specifics of the series. That said, Disney+ launches Nov. 12 and will have all Star Wars films, including The Rise of Skywalker, available within the first year of launch.
