Star Wars: Shooting pushed back - Is a bad script the reason?

While Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalkers is still playing in German cinemas, Disney has long been busy producing the next chapter in the Star Wars universe. The new series will see Ewan McGregor, who we already know as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the prequels, return to the role. An exact start date has not yet been announced for the spin-off. However, according to the platform Collider , this date will be delayed even further.

Filming of the Kenobi series delayed until January 2021

Collider initially cited "behind-the-scenes issues" as the reason for the delay. Lucasfilm president and Obi-Wan producer Kathleen Kennedy was not satisfied with the script for the series. They are now aiming to rewrite it in order to remain true to the franchise's creative aspirations. The crew, meanwhile, had been sent home.

Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor himself got back to us and spoke about the reports. He assured that the circumstances of the Kenobi series postponement were not as dramatic as the reports made it sound: "They moved the series start back to give everyone more time, not because the script was bad." Additionally, he let it be known that filming won't start until January 2021.

Disney+ will finally launch in Germany on March 24, 2020, according to the latest reports. Until the Kenobi series is released, we can enjoy the first season of The Mandalorian starting in March. The second season isalso already in the starting blocks and should still be released in the fall of 2020.

So it will be a little while before we see Ewan McGregor back in his old familiar role. Are you still looking forward to the Kenobi series? Drop us a line in the comments!
