Star Wars spin-off series Obi-Wan Kenobi begins filming

Filming has started on the new Star Wars spin-off series Obi-Wan Kenobi. 

Disney has set up a huge set in Little Marlow, Buckinghamshire, to film the upcoming Star War spin-off TV series about Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series will see Ewan McGregor reprise his role as the Jedi knight.

Drone images taken above the set shows a huge set, featuring dozens of small, sandy buildings, forming a town at a former quarry. Large marquees have also been raised to make room for the crew.

‘The set is massive, with great big buildings on it alongside loads of heavy duty machinery coming and going – it’s just totally out of keeping with the countryside vibe here and people are up in arms about it.’

Ewan confirmed earlier this week that Deborah Chow, who directed two episodes in the first series of The Mandalorian, will be behind the camera as he said: ‘She’s brilliant, and I’m really looking forward to working with her. It’ll just be great to do it again. I did my last one in 2003…
