As the project is in the preliminary stage, no details about the plot or production are known.

McGregor has played Obi-Wan in three of the Star Wars films – the prequel trilogy from The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005). He also had a voice cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
