Well, it's one thing when a website you've never heard of before say they hear the Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been canceled, and after a storm erupts on social media, they update the story to say the Kenobi series has only been "delayed." But then when the big-time Hollywood publications start looking into it ... let's just say that things totally start to get real. Like, executive-level realness.
Collider first reported yesterday they were hearing from sources that production on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series had been put on hold indefinitely, and people at Pinewood Studios had been sent home. Then The Hollywood Reporter got involved, and their sources not only confirmed* what Collider's sources were saying, but added a few more important details to the story.
*Confirmed meaning that The Hollywood Reporter heard what Collider heard. That doesn't mean this delay, hold, whatever you want to call it, has been officially confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney - at the time of recording for this episode of the show, they hadn't commented at all.
On today's episode, I'll recap all the details from last week as well as what's changed this week, and we'll also talk about Lucasfilm's track record for these kinds of creative changes. Punch it!
