Working Title Revealed for Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ Series

A working title has been revealed for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+.  According to ProductionWeekly, the Kenobi series has the codename “Pilgrim” attached to it.

Little information on the new Obi-Wan series has been shared, but we do know Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Kenobi and the events are said to take place at some point during the 19-year gap between the end of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” and “Star Wars: A New Hope.”

“We start shooting at the very beginning of next year, they’re in pre-production from this summer, there are scripts that I’ve read that are really good, they’re continuing to write on them to make them even better, and we start very early next year,” McGregor told Good Morning America. “And I’m excited about it. I think the last one I shot was in 2003, so it’s been a while. It’ll just be there, I think. Also, I’m reminding myself by watching their new films and The Mandalorian and stuff, I really enjoyed. I keep myself as current as I can with the Lucasfilm world. I don’t think it will take two minutes; I’ll put the cloak back on and I’ll be there, I think.”

No release date has been set for the series, but filming is expected to start in January 2021.
