    As The Mandalorian prepares for his debut later next month, Disney+ is wasting no time in gathering forces for another Star Wars hero: Obi-Wan Kenobi. The official Star Wars website has announced that Deborah Chow will be directing Ewan McGregor in an all new adventure series featuring the erstwhile Jedi Master.





    Chow, who directed two episodes of The Mandalorian for Jon Favreau, will be working from scripts written by Hossein Amini. Amini previously penned the Ryan Gosling drama Drive and television shows like McMafia and The Alienist, although it isn't clear if he will also be the showrunner on the project. Chow is no stranger to playing with famous pop culture toys as she's directed episodes of Lost in Space, Jessica Jones, Better Call Saul and American Gods.



    Star Wars and Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, have received flack in the past for the overabundance of male writers and directors, and a lack of writers that similarly reflect the increasing diversity of the world. Placing Deborah Chow and Hossein Amini in charge of one of their flagship and most popular characters should prove to be a step in the right direction, one which Kennedy stands firmly behind. Kennedy explained the decision to hire Chow in the following statement:
    It's unclear as to whether Chow will direct all episodes of the series, which takes place 8 years after Revenge of the Sith, or when it is slated to to be released. Lucasfilm was clearly very pleased with Chow's work on their first live action Star Wars series so fans should be in for a treat when Master Kenobi ignites his lightsaber once again.



    The untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series will arrive in late 2021 on Disney+.

    This could be fantastic. He's known to focus more on characters than on action. Exactly what we need for the Kenobi series. Fun fact: He already wrote a movie starring Ewan McGregor before- "Our Kind of Traitor".
