Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode 9

Update: Deadline has confirmed that Ewan McGregor is set to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a yet-to-be-titled Disney+ series. Details are being kept under wraps. Our original story follows below.

Earlier this year there were rumblings of a possible Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming together for Disney+. Word on the street was that the series came together from an idea that was originally intended to be a movie.

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Score Length

John Williams is probably the most well-known composer and conductor of motion picture scores. With credits under his belt like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Harry Potter, and plenty more, he’s crafted some of the most famous movie themes of all time.

Children of Blood and Bone Movie

Even though Disney is pulling back on the films that 20th Century Fox is developing after a disappointing third quarter performance at the box office, there are still some properties in the acquisition that are enticing enough to move forward.
