Pre-production on Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series has been put on hold as Lucasfilm looks to reshuffle the creative team.
Collider reports the Obi-Wan series has been put on indefinite hold, with the crew working on the show at Pinewood Studios in London sent home with no time frame given for their return.
The big wigs at Lucasfilm are said to be unhappy with the script and the shows original scribe Hossein Amini has been dropped as they look for new creative talent to bring Obi-Wan to the small screen.
Ewan McGregor who is set to reprise his role as Kenobi is still attached to the project, along with the director, Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian). Lucasfilm and Disney are going back to the drawing board, and could look inhouse at Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni to perhaps tackle the script.
After the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga, the studio is under a lot of pressure as the final film disappointed many. It makes sense for them to delay the show as they will be wanting the same quality of TV series as they had with The Mandalorian.
