MOVIE NEWS – Although she emphasized that this “was not the intention”, the director suggested that it would be feasible to continue this part of the Jedi’s story.
The last chapter of Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released next week , but although for now everything indicates that this will be the farewell to this story of the Jedi, Deborah Chow recently addressed the possibility of a second season of the show starring Ewan McGregor.
In an interview with Radio Times , the director of Obi-Wan Kenobi was asked about a possible second cycle of the series. Following up on what she had previously raised, Chow reaffirmed that Obi-Wan Kenobi was conceived as a limited series and thus was not developed with a second season in the offing.
“You know, we always conceived of this as a limited series. So it’s not the kind of adventure story of the week. It is a great story with a beginning, a middle and an end. So I think this story was meant to be standalone,” Chow said.
However, that would not imply that a second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi is impossible since Chow herself also recognized that there would be room for new stories with the character.
“I mean, of course, there are more stories you could tell. Obviously, there’s another 10 years before we get to A New Hope and with a character like Obi-Wan Kenobi, I think even seeing him ride through the arena at times is interesting,” Chow noted . “Then, who knows? It’s hard to say at this point, but that was not the intention.”
Previously, the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, had indicated that Obi-Wan Kenobi could have a second season and even Ewan McGregor himself commented that he would like to continue as the character. So, while nothing is final yet, we’ll have to wait to see what decision Disney will make after next week’s premiere of what is currently the sixth and final episode of the Obi-Wan series.
