Yesterday a report came out that the Obi-Wan series has been put on hold and the episode count reduced due to script issues. Last night, Ewan McGregor appeared at a Birds of Prey event in Hollywood and debunked the internet drama.
In an interview with the AP, McGregor says:
“It’s not been put on hold. It’s just been pushed back a little bit. Just for scripts. The scripts are excellent and they just want them to be better. So we just pushed it back. It’s not…It’s very dramatic it would seem online. There’s all kinds of **** online about it. It’s only slipped back a bit. But we’re still shooting it. It’ll still be aired when it was meant to be.”
