Ewan McGregor has announced that his Obi-Wan Kenobi series will no longer premiere on May 25 as originally intended. Instead, the show will debut two days later, on May 27. There’s some good news, though, as Disney is making up for the delay by premiering Obi-Wan Kenobi with not one, but two episodes. The show will be streaming exclusively on Disney+.
OBI-WAN KENOBI TO PREMIERE MAY 27 WITH TWO EPISODES (Star Wars)
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side and became the evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.
