Besides The Mandalorian, Star Wars fans have been excited for the release of the Obi-Wan series for Disney+. Though production has been delayed, at least Disney has decided to give us a release window for the show.
According to Disney, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is now looking to release sometime in 2022. Before that, we’re also set to get the Cassian Andor show starring Diego Luna; that series is set to come out earlier in 2021.
We don’t have any official synopsis for the Kenobi series yet, but it should cover the time after Revenge of the Sith when Obi-Wan is watching over Luke in Tatooine. Then again, I wouldn’t be against a flashback in the Clone Wars with Obi-Wan fighting alongside Anakin Skywalker.
Seeing that COVID-19 has made the future uncertain, it would make sense for Disney just to plan what year these shows come out, rather than to give us specific release dates; Marvel Studios pretty much backed themselves into a corner with their planned release dates, and now they’ve had to push an entire year’s worth of material back thanks to the pandemic.
For now, all productions have been put on hold, but optimistically, everyone wants things to be back to normal by June. Then again, we should prepare to be in quarantine more months after that, depending on how things progress. Fingers crossed that things will start to blow over by the end of the month so that Obi-Wan can begin production soon.
Though the Kenobi and Andor series are still a ways down the line, we can expect The Mandalorian 2 to hit Disney+ this October.
