First Photos of Ewan McGregor on ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Set from http://www.justjared.com/

“The costume is probably slightly different than you might expect.” - Ewan McGregor
No kidding… who knew you’d need a raincoat on Tatooine?

(And no, this isn’t the actual costume - just a ‘robe’ of sorts to cover it up from prying photographers!)
Although we’re still able to see a few glimpses, including what looks like Indira Varma as an Imperial officer.

For some reason I expected Ewan to have a short cut, since that’s what he had in ROTS and ANH, but his hair being long and disheveled makes sense too, especially if this a period in Obi’s life where he is still dealing with the trauma of what happened.

Anybody walking to the set in a Jawa costume is going to hard to obscure. 😉

I like this more rough look for Obi. It’s like half-way between his AOTC and ROTS looks. It’s recognisably closer to ROTS Obi-wan Kenobi, but in a more harsh environment, or something.

In the photos he’s in the wind and hard sunlight so it’s obviously not accurate to what he’ll look like on screen. This artwork by Jake Bartok is closer to what I think Obi-wan will look like in the show.

^Obi-Wan is so paranoid living on Tatooine, he arms himself with three lightsabers. 😉

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!

“I’m Ben.”

“Ben who?”

“Ben Nobody.”

“Okay Ben Nobody, where are you from?”
“Nowhere.”
“Everyone is from somewhere.”
“Tatooine”
“That is nowhere.”

It rhymes, like poetry.

Really hyped if Kang is playing an Inquisitor but hopefully not the Fifth one, his role in Rebels was fairly weak and a downgrade from the Grand Inquisitor from S1. Of course this can change for the better and they make him a compelling character here as with a lot of other SW characters that have been retroactively improved.

However what I’m really interested in is the prospect of the story not being completely set on Tatooine.

Fifth brother and seventh sister don’t exactly represent the best of Rebels - they were mostly just fill-in villains for Vader. But maybe the show can make Fifth brother a more interesting villain.

I’m also interested by the rumour that a young Leia will be a focus of the show. I’ve been worried about why Obi-wan would leave Tatooine and risk leading the Empire back to Luke, but if Leia is threatened somehow it’s a very good reason for him to do that. In Rogue One and ANH, Bail also knows that Obi-wan IS available to be called upon in times of desperate need, so it would line up. I’m happy about this.
