    With the Obi-Wan Kenobi-focused series facing a delay on Disney+, and Hossein Amini, who was brought in to adapt an existing movie script for Disney+, now dismissed from the project, Lucasfilm is quickly searching for writers to improve the existing scripts.

    In a Variety report on the state of Star Wars on Disney+, they provided a small update on the situation. As we know, the series is expected to be directed entirely by The Mandalorian director Deborah Chow, who directed the highly acclaimed third and seventh chapters of the first season. Variety makes it clear that nothing official has taken place but that Disney is looking into several options for writers to improve the current scripts, which Ewan McGregor is on record saying are already really good.

    This is presented by Variety as editorialized speculation, and while it is possible Yost and Filoni could be involved, there is currently no evidence that is the case. So please keep that in mind. Die-hard animation fan favorite Filoni, who wrote for The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and also The Mandalorian, would be a popular pick from a public perspective. But that remains to be seen.

    Yost has an existing commitment with Netflix in their live-action adaptation of the anime Cowboy Bebop, a show which had a significant production delay following a knee injury that John Cho, the lead actor on the series, suffered from. As such, Yost could be quite busy come May 2020, when the series is expected to resume filming. Filoni is also overseeing development of new animated Star Wars shows, and he will likely direct at least one more episode of The Mandalorian in Season 2. Even still, it's likely that they can make time for Star Wars, and Filoni's Rebels episode 'Twin Suns' perfectly encapsulated what a post-Revenge of the Sith iteration of the Jedi mentor would act like years before his final adventure. Either would be a huge boon for Lucasfilm and would help correct whatever issues existed with the series. But again, until any tangible confirmations or evidence presents itself that they are in talks for Kenobi, it must remain as speculation based suggestions.

    The untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series is in development for Disney+.
