‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Taps Todd Cherniawsky as Production Designer
Lucasfilm has a full slate of Star Wars projects that are currently in the works. One of the most notable projects that begins production this Spring is Obi-Wan Kenobi. Fans are excited for the return of the noble Jedi Master but most importantly, the teased duel between his old Padawan Anakin Skywalker, a.k.a. Darth Vader.
Due to script rewrites, production was halted early last year and was then delayed again due to the pandemic. Since then, however, things have been moving along quite nicely as Discussing Film has just exclusively reported that Todd Cherniawsky will serve as production designer for the upcoming Star Wars series.
Cherniawsky isn’t new to the franchise having served as supervising art director for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. The talented creator also has production design credits for Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Zero Dark Thirty, Sucker Punch, Tomorrowland, Alice in Wonderland, The BFG, Avatar, and Distant.
Previously, Chung-hoon Chung was tapped as cinematographer for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
Ewan McGregor returns as Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+ in 2022.
