After months of speculation, the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series has found a new writer.
Variety is reporting that Joby Harold, best known as the writer behind King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Awake, will pen the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Harold takes over script duties from Hossein Amini, who departed the project back in January.
Two months ago, it was revealed that Lucasfilm decided to put on hold as it looked to overhaul the entire script. The series was set to have six episodes (much like Disney Plus’ other limited series’ from Marvel), but then it was rumored to have been cut down to four. There is no update on that rumor at this time.
Deborah Chow, who directed two episodes of Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian series on Disney Plus, is still attached to helm all episodes in the Obi-Wan series.
Harold’s most recent work includes writing the script for Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, Army of the Dead, and executive produced John Wick 3: Parabellum.
