“Obi-Wan Show Delayed Reportedly Due To Story Concerns”
After much debate and discourse, it looks as if the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ show is actually being put on hold for the time being. Although multiple rumors were circulating last week about the Obi-Wan television show possibly being put on hold, those presumptions were assumed false and the matter had been thought to be laid to rest. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case.
The idea of an upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi television show has been met with a ton of excitement from Star Wars fans, many of whom consider Ewan McGregor’s portrayal of the iconic Jedi to be one of the best parts of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. From reports the entire idea began as a standalone Star Wars film ala Solo: A Star Wars Story to rumors the upcoming Disney+ show will feature a bearded Jar Jar Binks, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been rife with speculation from both fans and critics since it was announced.
Now, it looks as if fans will be waiting a little long to find out just what all happened to Obi-Wan between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, as Collider reports that the crew of the Obi-Wan Kenobi television show has been sent home early and was told the show would be shut down “indefinitely.” The report also states that Lucasfilm’s current president, Kathleen Kennedy, was not happy with the Obi-Wan Kenobi show scripts, and they will likely be reworked before the show returns to attempt production.
Although multiple rumors about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series’ problems have permeated the discussion surrounding the show as of late, this is the first official confirmation something isn’t quite working right on the set of the Star Wars spin-off. Problems with directors and scripts is something Star Wars fans are becoming quite familiar with lately, as changes in production plagued not on the previously mentioned Solo project but also the latest film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
If there are issues to be ironed out with the upcoming Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi show, it’s better they be fixed now while it’s still in the intangible stages rather than the problems arising on the actual days of shooting. While fans will surely be unhappy with any delays on something they have been looking forward to for some time, hopefully the eventual finished product’s quality will at least match that of another Star Wars Disney+ show, The Mandalorian, which has proven to be quite popular among fans and critics alike.
