To commemorate Star Wars Day on May 4, Disney+ has published a new Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer. The first two episodes of the six-part limited series will air on May 27. Following the premiere, the series will air weekly on Wednesdays until June 22nd, when it will conclude.
The teaser (which you can view above) teases Obi-Wan Kenobi’s upcoming battle with Lord Darth Vader by showing a peek of the renowned Star Wars villain. The tale picks up 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when Obi-Wan Kenobi suffered his greatest defeat: Anakin Skywalker, his best friend and Jedi trainee, went to the dark side and became malevolent Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The series stars Ewan McGregor, who reprises his role as the Jedi Master, as well as Hayden Christensen, who reprises his role as Darth Vader. Kumail Nanjiani, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie are among the newcomers to the cast.
Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold executive produce Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is directed by Deborah Chow.
Disney+ has unveiled key art for the series alongside the trailer.
Disney+ made a commitment to Star Wars fans for May 4th, or “Star Wars Day,” shortly after midnight Pacific Time.
Some suspected that this was the special surprise Disney planned for fans to commemorate the event, especially since the six-episode Obi-Wan Kenobi series is due to premiere on Disney+ on May 27.
Fans are expecting for a strong second trailer, with a decent glimpse at Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.
