At present, even the Obi-Wan Kenobi series’ filming schedule is a bit of a mystery. It was initially reported that the spinoff would begin filming in March of this year. But this soon changed, with more reports stating that filming was due to being in January before news arrived claiming that filming would start in spring, as originally planned. McGregor certainly appears physically fit enough to begin filming now, and the delays in production have apparently given him even more time to build up those muscles. It would seem that this is the new look of Obi-Wan Kenobi, however, Star Wars fans might be a little confused as to why a Jedi would require such brawn, as physical strength has never been a part of Jedi knighthood.
While it makes sense that McGregor would require being physically fit for the more practical demands of his Obi-Wan Kenobi role, it could also be that his sizeable transformation is due to another upcoming project. McGregor will star in World War Z director Marc Forster’s The Cow, in which the Obi-Wan star will play a World War II-era soldier. As this project is currently listed as being in pre-production, it could very well be that McGregor’s gun show is actually reserved for a war, but not of the variety found in a galaxy far, far away.
