Bespin refugee - September 27, 2019

Both The MAndalorian and the "Kenobi" series will air on the Disney+ streaming service.

'Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stated, “We really wanted to select a director who is able to explore both the quiet determination and rich mystique of Obi-Wan in a way that folds seamlessly into the Star Wars saga. Based on her phenomenal work developing our characters in The Mandalorian, I’m absolutely confident Deborah is the right director to tell this story.”'

Chow, Amini, and McGregor will serve as Executive Producers alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Tracey Seaward (The Queen) and John Swartz (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). Jason McGatlin, Lucasfilm’s Executive Vice President Production, will serve as co-producer.

I wonder if we'll see a young Luke in the series or even a reference to Satine Bicker?

This is a good move for Disney. After bombing the Solo movie, it'll be refreshing to thresh out a story over several episodes in order to expound more on the untouched mythology of Obi Wan, not to mention rendering in live action epic scenes and stories from the comics!

I'm good with this, as long as it doesn't lead to Disney deciding to make a Boba Fett series.
