On The Graham Norton Show, McGregor said that it will be a challenge to meet in the middle of the younger Obi-Wan he portrayed in The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005), and Sir Alec Guinness’ portrayal of the Jedi knight in A New Hope (1977). McGregor says he watched a lot of Guinness’ old films to prepare for the prequel trilogy movies.

The new series was announced in 2019 and will be one season with six episodes. Award-winning director Deborah Chow, known in the Star Wars fandom for directing The Mandalorian, will be directing this new series. It will be set eight years after Revenge of the Sith and 11 years before A New Hope.
