Yes “Star Wars Day” (May the 4th) was a couple of days ago. We kinda knew a new trailer would drop for something, and we got another look at the upcoming Obi-Wan series heading to Disney+ later this month. It was only 2 months ago, we got the first look at the series. So here comes the marketing thick and fast for the next few weeks.
At long last, Obi-Wan Kenobi has returned to the Star Wars universe. After Alec Guiness originated the role of the beloved Jedi in Star Wars: A New Hope, Ewan McGregor stole the hearts of fans as a younger version of the character throughout the prequel trilogy. Now, more than 16 years after last appearing as Obi-Wan in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, McGregor is reprising the role in a brand new TV series for Disney+.
Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place in the years between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. After the rise of the Empire, Obi-Wan went into hiding on Tatooine, keeping watch over Anakin’s son, Luke Skywalker, from afar. After the death of Padme, and Anakin’s turn to the Dark Side, newborn twins Luke and Leia were split up. Luke was sent to live with his aunt and uncle, under the watchful eye of Obi-Wan, while Leia was adopted by Senator Bail Organa. With Hayden Christensen also returning as Anakin/Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi has become perhaps the most anticipated Star Wars project in the pipeline. This week, Lucasfilm releases a brand new trailer for the series. Take a look!
Are we excited for this one Star Wars fans? Obi-Wan Kenobi hits Disney+ on May 27th and will consist of 6 episodes
