Rumor: Obi-Wan Kenobi Standalone Filming Set For Belfast In April 2019

Even though the project has yet to be officially announced by Lucasfilm, The Belfast Telegraph is reporting that filming on the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars standalone film featuring Ewan McGregor back in the titular lead role will be taking place in Belfast, Ireland in April 2019.

Last month we saw several reports that aimed to add clarity to Lucasfilm’s decision to put production on future Star Wars standalone films on hold as they look to determine the best way to develop these projects after the box office results of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Earlier reports pegged Stephen Daldry as the director set to helm the Kenobi film, but we have yet to receive confirmation on those reports or anything else in an official manner as it pertains to this standalone film.

Take this latest rumor with as much salt as needed for the time being until we hear differently from an official Lucasfilm/Disney source.
