LucasFilm On The Possibility Of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Season 2

Obi-Wan Kenobi Director Deborah Chow and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy have opened up about the possibility of a second season for the film Star Wars series.

The road to the Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been long and complicated. As the story goes, the series was originally envisioned as a movie when Disney and LucasFilm were determined to release a new one. Star Wars filming for a year. Those plans crashed and then burned Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed at the box office. As a result, many of the ideas and concepts that would have made their way to the cinema made their way into the various Disney Plus series. The Obi-Wan Kenobi series was supposedly one such project.

The transition from a movie to a miniseries was apparently not easy. The series was put on hold by LucasFilm at least once, and a new writer was brought on board to help even the scripts. Earlier this week, the first trailer for the series made its debut, teasing Inquisitors and a version of Obi-Wan Kenobi still dealing with the fact that they lost. However, the question on the minds of some is whether or not the series will get a second season.

Kathleen Kennedy has said in the past that the project would be a limited series. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Deborah Chow confirmed that it was conceived as a standalone story.

“It was definitely intended to be a limited series, and it’s one big story with a beginning, middle and end. The approach has always been that it is one complete story.”

Kathleen Kennedy echoed these sentiments, but didn’t rule out the prospect completely:

“It’s definitely something we talk about, especially because everyone got together and had such an incredible time. Ewan [McGregor] had an incredible time. Hayden [Christensen] had an incredible time. So certainly from that point of view, everyone involved would like to see that this doesn’t stop. But we really need to spend our time asking the question: why should we do it? If we decided to do anything else with the Obi-Wan character, we’d really have to answer the question why?”

Directed by Deborah Chow from the scripts by Joby Harold, starring Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. The series will also see the return of legendary Star Wars composer John Williams, who scored a theme.

Obi-Wan Kenobi coming to Disney Plus on May 25, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest on the upcoming series and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
