  • Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series enlists new writer for retooling

Harold takes over the writing duties for Hossein Amini, who reportedly abandoned the project in January. Sources close to production confirmed Variety's report with IndieWire. This would mark Harold's first time writing for a television series.

The Force is strong with Joby Harold - so strong that he is stepping in as a new writer for the forthcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney+.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the writer is known for producing a plethora of movies which include "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum", "Trumbo", "Edge Of Tomorrow", and "King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword".

McGregor played the character in the three "Star Wars" prequels - "The Phantom Menace", "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith". Recently, he finished writing Zack Snyder's upcoming movie "Army Of The Dead".

The delay that has been taken Obi-Wan series to work on all that rewriting of the project is already becoming evident.
