McGregor was then asked if he fully got into character while doing the screen tests with Chow, to which he revealed that he did and that he surely surprised some crew members of The Manadalorian who were helping with the tests along the way.
“We did it properly. It was a funny moment walking on set because it was a lot of The Mandalorian crew and I walked on – for me it was a big moment. I walked into the dressing room and there were my beige cloaks and my belts and boots and it was like – ‘oh my god’.”

It still hasn’t been announced as to when the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will arrive on Disney+, but we do know that Deborah Chow will be directing and Joby Harold will be writing the limited series following the show reportedly going on hold after Lucasfilm president and Obi-Wan producer Kathleen Kennedy was reportedly not happy with the current scripts.
McGregor downplayed the news, saying that the show being on hold will not impact the unannounced release date and that “I’ve read about eighty, ninety percent of what they’ve written so far, and it’s really, really good. Instead of shooting this August, they just want to start shooting in January, that’s all. Nothing more dramatic than that.”
McGregor also explained that, for now, this series will be a “standalone season” and will begin shooting in Spring 2021.
