to Begin Filming in March, Says Ewan McGregor
Ewan McGregor will soon be donning Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi robes
During a Zoom appearance on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show"

McGregor played Kenobi in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, and
has since reprised the role in voice cameos for 2015's "The
Force Awakens" and 2019's "The Rise of Skywalker." The unnamed
Disney Plus Kenobi series does not have a release date yet.
