This weekend you have have seen some Star Wars set photos flying around the internet. What you probably saw titled on this articles was something like ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi Set Photo’s’. The reason for this of course is the original source for these shots said the same thing. We cannot post the images here as they are owned by British tabloid The Sun. However feel free to take a look in the link for a once over, that’s if you can bear giving this tabloid the clicks? I must admit there is a part of me that feels dirty having clicked on that link. As a Brit myself, I am only too aware of this tabloids sketchy reputation.
Here is the thing. Far as anyone who truly looks into these images are concerned, they are not for Obi Wan Kenobi. When this story broke over the week, I was on Reddit and most of the fans on there are pretty satisfied that the tabloid has the wrong project. Comparison to Andor’s sizzle reel would seem to indicate this massive set is actually being used for Andor, not Obi-Wan Kenobi. We also have to factor in the fact that we think the Obi-Wan Kenobi production only just began in England. Andor is instead further ahead and you can see this for yourself in that very same sizzle reel. Oh hell, here it is if you wanna see for yourself.
After looking at that, does anyone still think these drones photos are showing the Obi-Wan Kenobi set? I know for a fact that the Obi-Wan Kenobi team are already in the U.K., but it does not seem like the actors have showed up for filming yet. Whatever project this is for (it’s Andor), what is clear is the scale of this set is huge. What do you think of these newest Star Wars set photos? Share your thoughts as always.
