“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” the new Disney+ limited series from Lucasfilm, will debut exclusively on Disney+ May 25. The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master.
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where 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 as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The Lucas film Special Event 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.
According to The Verge, “Obi-Wan Kenobi is part of a growing collection of live-action Star Wars shows produced for Disney’s streaming service. These kicked off with 2019’s The Mandalorian, which was followed up with The Book of Boba Fett in late 2021. Other shows announced include Andor, following Rogue One’s Cassian Andor, Ahsoka, Lando, and The Acolyte, many of which are set to tell interconnected stories with similar characters re-appearing between them.”
The limited series is directed by Deborah Chow, director of two critically acclaimed episodes of “The Mandalorian,” Season 1. It is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.
