LRM RUMOR: The Reason Behind The Rumored Obi-Wan Disney+ Series Delays

This past week was a whirlwind of news revolving around the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series. There were a couple of rumors surrounding its supposed cancelation (one was a parody, but one was a bit more credible). At the time, even one of our sources indicated that the show was canceled unexpectedly. However, after a bit more digging from other scoopers, it turned out there was no cancelation. Instead, there was a delay — though the reasons behind that have not been elaborated.

We now have word from one of our sources regarding said reasoning. Keep in mind, this is from a different source than the one who told me the show was canceled. According to this source, the Obi-Wan series is definitely on, but they face a bit of an issue in terms of location.

As you may know, Australia has fallen victim to a tragic series of bushfires. Apparently, the Obi-Wan series was supposed to do some filming there, and the state of the country has placed a big question mark on the location. As such, the higher-ups have been looking at other options, which includes delaying production.

However, the rub here has to do with star Ewan McGregor’s schedule. Apparently, he has a couple of projects jutting up against the tail end of the originally-scheduled Obi-Wan Kenobi series shoot. In fact, if they delay production, McGregor won’t be available for some time. This may be the aforementioned “drama” that YouTuber Grace Randolph mentioned last weekend, though I wouldn’t classify it as drama. That being said, it does appear as though the stakes are fairly high, as it could mean a significant and indefinite delay for the show.

At this point, the higher-ups are still exploring their options, and don’t know the best path forward just yet.

So, from what I’ve been able to gather, I jumped the gun last week when I stated that the show was canceled. This appears to be a case of a source at a certain level having only snippets of information that affect those they know from certain departments, which of course, doesn’t tell the whole picture.

Anyway, how do you feel about the situation the Obi-Wan series finds itself in? Let us know your thoughts down below!
