The upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor that was announced at the D23 Expo now has a director and writer, with Deborah Chow set to direct and Hossein Amini working on the script.

The Disney+ series takes place eight years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Chow recently directed Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian for Disney+. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said of the choice:

“We really wanted to select a director who is able to explore both the quiet determination and rich mystique of Obi-Wan in a way that folds seamlessly into the Star Wars saga. Based on her phenomenal work developing our characters in The Mandalorian, Iā€™m absolutely confident Deborah is the right director to tell this story.”
