Thanks to the success obtained with the series starring Pedro Pascal, the executives decided to make more stories with new characters and others who are already classics within their cinematographic universe, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was first introduced by Alec Guinness in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope – 93% and later by Ewan McGregor in a younger version for Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace – 55%.
The series about the Jedi master will take place ten years after the confrontation between himself and who would have been his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker. What has generated the most anticipation is that both characters will be played again by McGregor and Hayden Christensen, which will mean a look at the transition from young Skywalker to the feared Darth Vader. Although the series begins its main filming in late April, the set is under construction and has already been shown to the public.

Finally, the protagonist of the series reported a few days ago that the program will be made with the same technology that was used to film the story about the Mandalorian: the StageCraft, a new filming technique in which the set is surrounded by a screen in the one projected on the stages where a particular scene takes place, which has been quite revolutionary in visual entertainment.
We’re filming it the same way The Mandalorian series was shot. We are using some of that technology. I really liked it and I liked its format. I liked the western nature, it is an old-fashioned western television. It is brilliant.
