Disney is getting ready for the premiere of the next series from the Star Wars universe, and although we still haven’t seen a single episode of “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, there are already questions about a possible sequel.
The first episode of the series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” will debut on May 25, and the premiere season has been divided into six episodes. The corporation has only mentioned one story with Ewan McGregor in the lead role at the moment, but the latest trailer presentation has sparked expectations .
The question immediately arose – can we count on more? Kathleen Kennedy (Lucasfilm CEO and Producer) and Deborah Chow (Director) spoke to Entertainment Weekly, and the sequel was raised during the interview.
The creator does not hide that the prepared story is closed:
“It was definitely conceived as a limited series, and it is one big story with a beginning, middle, and end. The approach has always been that it is one full story.”
However, one gets the impression that Kathleen Kennedy has a completely different opinion. The Lucasfilm CEO mentioned that everything really needs to be discussed as the crew had a good time on the set.
“It’s certainly something we talk about, mainly because everybody came together and had such an incredible time. Ewan [McGregor] had an incredible time. Hayden [Christensen] had an incredible time. So certainly from that point of view, everybody involved would love to see this not end,” she explained. “But we have to really spend our time asking the question: why would we do it? If we were to decide to do anything more with the Obi-Wan character, we’d have to really answer the question why?”
You get the impression that while Deborah Chow has done her job, Kathleen Kennedy is aware of the strength of the brand. The corporation certainly sees very enthusiastic feedback on the first season of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and there are probably preliminary plans to expand the story already.
