    I think it was just someone taking a parody site to seriously and it got pushed by someone who sometimes writes for Vanity Fair.

    Grace Randolph is reporting that while the show is not cancelled, multiple sources are telling her that there is substantial friction between McGregor and Disney/Lucasfilm and very real concern that the project may get cancelled if it doesn't get smoothed out.

    Cause Grace Randolph is trustworthy. :rolleyes: Substantial friction my ass, he agreed to do Obi-Wan like five years ago, but had to keep it a secret. The scripts have been finished since at least D23 [Kathleen Kennedy confirmed at D23] and are filming in July. Some "insiders" these are especially who thought it was canceled in the first place. Hell, they didn't even bother to check with Lucasfilm! They just put this bantha poodoo story out with no care except clicks.

    Wait! Isn't Grace Randolph one of those drama-fueled, clickbait mongers squeezing cash out of YouTube vids by propping up hate and spinning lies to generate fake controversies? She one of those people, right?

    It isn't unthinkable that there's drama in the Kenobi production, 'cause there often are, but until this is reported by anything resembling reliable sources and outlets, this remains a non-news piece.

    The recent rumors about the show being canceled are 100% fake. If Disney canceled Obi-Wan now they truly would not be able to handle the PR shitstorm. Even if something terrible happened that prohibited them from doing the show, they would have to do it SOMEHOW to save face...

    Better cancel than do it badly like the last season of GoT or (IMO) TRoS. But I hope that rumors are fake and they will do it properly. Ewan deserve nothing less than high quality script.

    I ask the original poster on twitter where all the news sites that had it in an article list as the source. Here is what the person sent me back..."Yes. It’s fake. But it blew up and sites were claiming the news was real and were using my tweet as a source." His account is a parody account.

    Good, I'm looking forward to this. Hoping we will even get a little Yoda on Dagobah.

    I think part of what's going on is that production rumors have become more believable to both average fans and those who are in and/or around the industry in light of the production mismanagement that has been afflicting LFL. When it comes down to it, Disney/LFL is only batting .500: TFA, TLJ, and Mando are the only three major projects to happen with normal proceedings. And the continual denials of Rogue, Solo, and Ep. IX production drama rumors that turned out to be true doesn't help... not to mention the surprise departure of Benioff & Weiss. The loss of the GoT guys gave LFL/Disney a credibility hit with the trades & industry reporters that were generally favorable to LFL, in spite of other production issues.

    Anyways, I just think more people are going to lend credence to rumors with little substantiation because it now sounds like something that is not only plausible, but is likely. This is part of the damage that has been done to the franchise, and part of why its so essential for these next few projects to stick the landing without any excess drama.

    David and Dan walked away for their own reasons that most likely centered on the potential long-term gains of their Netflix deal and the more robust creative control options said deal afforded them.

    However, that doesn't excuse the deliberate perpetuation of lies that certain people and/or websites have decided to engage in since the post-Lucas Lucasfilm Era began.

    The only way to know for certain is if someone on the inside leaks it. They wouldn't dare risk losing their careers over something so trivial. Meaning all this is just typical Internet bs. Yes TROS did leak, but Lucasfilm interal affairs does not leak.

    It's not going to be filming in July. Not if it's put on hold now and people are being told to go ahead and find other work.

    What a mess. Seriously, how many times are we gonna have to go through this? In August they announce this and they say the scripts are all done. But apparently they weren't. What should have been a slam dunk is instead another example of the pooch being screwed.

    I don't know where this notion came from, but it is patently untrue.
