AceShowbiz – The “Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi” spin-off has just been handed the big guns – “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” executive producer Joby Harold has been hired to revamp the script.
The upcoming Disney+ series, featuring Ewan McGregor as the Star Wars sage, was halted back in January to allow film bosses to “rethink” the story.
Multiple sources claimed the script was too similar to that of last year’s 2019 Disney+ hit “The Mandalorian“, whose director, Deborah Chow, is on board to oversee the Obi-Wan series.
