The Scoop

Our source has revealed to us that production on Obi-Wan is set for March 2021 in Los Angeles.

Rumors were swirling that due to COVID-19, many studios were planning for a future of more closed sets. It appears that Lucasfilm plans to proceed with shooting the upcoming series stateside as it did with The Mandalorian. It’s fair to assume that The Volume, the virtual filming environment also used heavily for The Mandalorian, will play a big role in shaping the still-untitled Kenobi led series.

The script will be penned by Joby Harold, who is also writing the follow-up to Paramount’s Transformer’s prequel, Bumblebee.
