This probably won't be out for a GOOD WHILE, but it's about to start production so here's a press release and cast announcement:
Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new Disney+ special event series starring Ewan McGregor as the iconic Jedi Master, will begin shooting in April.

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is directed by Deborah Chow, director of two critically acclaimed episodes of The Mandalorian Season 1.

The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader.

Nice to see the same actors from the prequels playing Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, even if it's going to make their sudden VERY ROUGH AGEING in the original film look even more jarring :D

I don't really understand how Hayden Christensen is going to be IN this as much as they seem to be making out, unless there are lots of flashbacks - once Darth Vader is in his suit (ie ten years before this is set) he doesn't play either the body OR voice of the character :D Though I suppose they could start having him do the voice and digitally alter it, James Earl Jones is 90 so they could be thinking of replacing him.
