Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Rumored for Disney's Streaming Service

With Disney and LucasFilm reportedly looking to expand its Star Wars original programming on Disney's upcoming premium streaming service, Disney+, a new report claims a series focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi.

An online rumor has surfaced that a six-episode miniseries focused on the legendary Jedi Master set sometime in between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope is being planned to follow The Mandalorian and the upcoming Rogue One spinoff featuring the return of Diego Luna as Cassian Andor.

The rumor follows earlier reports this week that Disney and LucasFilm were planning a variety of original series for Disney+ including a rumored spinoff from Solo: A Star Wars Story and a rumored prequel series centered on a younger Princess Leia Organa.

An Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff film had long been rumored but was reportedly shelved following the poor box office performance of Solo last year. The following month, rumors first arose that LucasFilm had changed their plans for the planned film to instead be repurposed for Disney+, further corroborating the new rumor that a miniseries for Ewan McGregor's incarnation of the character may be in the works.
