In a recent interview with Eddie Izzard, Ewan McGregor cleared up some rumors around his Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus project, and settled once and for all when and where it will begin its principal photography shoot.
After directly referencing many of the rumored locations that Kenobi was supposed to film in like Boston, US, Boston, UK, and others, he made it clear that they plan to begin filming later this Spring, and that the shoot will take place in Los Angeles, using the same StageCraft/Volume technology that Jon Favreau has used for The Mandalorian.
He also goes on to talk about what it will be like to shoot on these futuristic sets by comparing it to his almost fully decked out blue/green screen sets from the Prequel days. He definitely sounds excited about the new technology, because I’m sure he still has nightmares about his days trying to fully pretend what was around him while shooting most of the Prequel trilogy.
You can check out a clip featuring Ewan’s interview below:
With the Obi-Wan show starting production late Spring 2021, we can most definitely expect it to drop early 2022. I just don’t think they’ll try to cram it into the schedule towards the end of 2021, which already has at least the Book of Boba Fett on the schedule. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
