The Army of the Dead co-writer assumes writing responsibility on Deborah Chow‘s upcoming Disney Plus Series
Balance has been restored and the Force is strong once again…
It has been reported that Army of the Dead co-writer Joby Harold has been appointed as the new writer for the hotly-anticipated upcoming Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series. Harold is no stranger to big-budget projects following his success with his executive producer role on John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and his written accomplishments with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Trumbo. However, this represents his first foray into the galaxy far, far away…
Disney’s Obi-Wan series was placed on hold back in January after the original scripts fell way short of expectations, but Obi-Wan himself, Ewan McGregor was confident that the re-writes would not cause any significant delay in production.
Returning to the director’s chair for the show will be Deborah Chow. The visionary filmmaker was praised for her efforts of The Mandalorian – Chapter 3 (The Sin) and she will be eager to hit the ground running with Obi-Wan. Sadly, as of press time, there is no official release date for the series, only that Ewan McGregor is expected to don the iconic Jedi robes on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
Alongside the Obi-Wan series, Disney+ is actively developing a Cassian Andor Rogue One prequel series as well as the hotly-anticipated second season of The Mandalorian which is expected to begin streaming this October.
