Rory Ross, who is set to appear in Obi Wan Kenobi in an unspecified role, recently chatted with /Film and explained why the series is still nowhere to be found taking a swipe at game of thrones‘ The Starbucks coffee cup mistake last season.
“I think a lot of fans are like, ‘Where’s the trailer? What’s going on?’ I think the big part is [Lucasfilm] just trying to make sure it’s as polite as possible,” he said. “So that when it comes out, it won’t have that game of thrones moment, where there’s a cup of coffee in the corner that they missed or something. There’s going to be a lot of love poured into it, and it’s just going to hopefully just blow people away and really enjoy seeing what happens.
Obi Wan Kenobi had been stuck in development hell for several years before the team started rolling the cameras. But even now, we still don’t have a definitive release date on the Jedi Master single-player release. According to one of the cast members, it mostly has to do with Lucasfilm’s obsession with making sure the series is as polished and useful as every star wars fans expect it.
Sure, we’ve known for some time that filming has wrapped on the next Disney Plus series, but post-production on projects set in the galaxy far, far away often includes heavy VFX work. It’s an excuse anyone can come up with, even if what really gets star wars fans are the fact that Lucasfilm has yet to release a proper trailer that at least gives us an idea of what the story will entail. Well, aside from the supposed showdown between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader.
I don’t think a missed Starbucks cup on the shelf of Obi Wan Kenobi would be as anachronistic as in the medieval setting of game of thrones. But if the creatives behind this colossal undertaking think more time is needed, who are we to say otherwise?
