On the heels of Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian and the Rogue One spinoff following Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, Lucasfilm’s next stab at episodic Star Wars is reportedly an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series, with Ewan McGregor stepping back into the role for the first time since Revenge of the Sith. But what will the show actually be about? The answer may have been in front of us for years.
