After a couple of weeks of speculation and leaks, Disney has officially announced that Ewan McGregor will be returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a new live action series for Disney+!

No word on if this announcement was planned for D23, but it is clear that this series has been in the works for a while and Disney was just very good at keeping it hush hush until recently.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series rounds out the 3 live action series initially mentioned by Bob Iger a few months ago. The 3 series are The Mandalorian, the Cassian Andor prequel series, and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

No word on a release date/window, but I have a guess that this will not be coming out until 2021 at the earliest.
