Filming is set to begin in April for the new Disney+ show.

It has been announced that Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new series on Disney+ starring Ewan McGregor as the iconic Jedi Master, will begin production in April, of course barring unforeseen circumstances.

The series is set 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where those dramatic events saw Kenobi facing his biggest defeat, the corruption and eventual transformation of his Jedi apprentice, and friend Anakin Skywalker as he evolved into evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.

The series is directed by Deborah Chow, director of two critically acclaimed episodes of The Mandalorian Season 1.

It also sees the eagerly awaited return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader.
