Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Premieres On Disney Plus In May

At last, after that long debacle of tweet hint, Obi-Wan Kenobi Series will premiere on Disney Plus this 25th of May.

And May the …25th… be with you then?

It would seem that deleted tweet and slight side step of mentioning the Comic Book series are light years ago already.

Finally we have a date with Master Kenobi!

Director of the series is Deborah Chow.

There is the teaser video where she and Obi-Wan Kenobi series star Ewan McGregor talks about Hayden Christensen coming back as Anakin Skywalker, aka Darth Vader.

Chow explains:
We couldn’t tell the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi without addressing Anakin or Vader.
McGregor exclaims:

The most beautiful thing of all is that it’s brought me back together with Hayden… have another swing at each other, might be quite satisfying for everybody

Deborah Chow iterates that the series time is quite a “dark” one that they are coming into.

The timeline is some years between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.

Just a few years before Rogue One.

Jobi Harold writes for the series.

Being a Jedi alone is a dangerous situation during that time.

Jedi Hunters are about and it is not safe for the Force-sensitive beings.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has the ultimate task of ensuring Luke Skywalker’s safety.

The snippet shows a scene of Obi-Wan giving a couple a baby, presumably Luke.

Joel Edgerton is Luke’s Uncle Owen Lars with Bonnie Piesse as Aunt Beru Whitesun Lars.

Additionally, Moses IngramKumail NanjianiIndira VarmaRupert FriendO’Shea Jackson Jr.Sung KangSimone KessellBenny SafdieMaya Erskine, and Rory Ross have been cast in undisclosed roles.

Apart from tackling the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader relationship, there are other arising conflicts for the Master Jedi.

Recent reports state that Rupert Friend is playing none other than the Grand Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels.

The Grand Inquisitor is the highest ranking officer among the individuals that can use the force while under the command of Emperor Palpatine.

They are the Jedi Hunters that Deborah Chow refers to in the video.

Due to Episode IV, we know that the Inquisitors are not successful in eliminating Old Ben.

But the details of those dark times and the obstacles that Master Kenobi went through will tell an awesome story.

Indeed, Ewan McGregor is right.

The fans have waited long enough for this character to come back.

And Hayden coming back as the Sith Lord Vader is like giving Hera Syndulla some Meiloorun Fruit.
