For fans waiting on any details involving the plot or locales for the much anticipated Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+, sadly, we’re still going to have to wait a bit longer.
Star Ewan McGregor has confirmed not too long ago that the delays on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series pushed the production start to January 2021, so any of those details we probably won’t learn until Spring 2021. For now, though, we have the working title – which is a brand of speculation that has almost become a tradition for fans who look for possible hints about the series in question.
Obi-Wan Kenobi On A Pilgrimage?
So now we can refer to the untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series as Pilgrim, which will definitely get the rumor mill flying with the possibilities of what this could mean for a young(er) Obi-Wan potentially making a pilgrimage of sorts.
Considering the definition of a pilgrim being an individual who travelled to locations of religious importance, there are a few theories that crop up. The ancient moon of Jedha was considered a sacred holy site by many, and as such was visited by pilgrims of various faiths, such as the Disciples of the Whills, the Brotherhood of the Beatific Countenance, the Clan of the Toribota, and the Central Isopter. So there is a good chance that Obi-Wan Kenobi might visit the Rogue One location of Jedha at some point or possibly any number of Jedi holy locations sprinkled throughout canon and the expanded universe.
Hopefully, with this revelation, we can expect Obi-Wan to finally leave the backwater planet that is Tatooine and explore some other planets that don’t involve any sand. As much as I’d like to see him explore a earlier version of Jedha before the empire was fully entrenched in their mining operation. There are so many possibilities the old general could explore and build into the mythos of this beloved character, especially with Ewan Mcgregor’s passion for the character it does seem likely that we would like to expand on his character he portrayed in the prequels.
Deborah Chow is officially set to direct Kenobi and production designer Neil Lemont (Solo, Rogue One) is expected to be part of the show’s production team.
The Untitled Kenobi series will debut on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
