Disney+ Employee Posts Alleged “Release Date” for ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Show


I want to start off by saying that someone posting something on Twitter doesn’t automatically make it true. This is a rumor and it has not been confirmed. According to Brandon SanGiovanni on Twitter, who lists himself as “Disney+ Management @ Disney Streaming,” the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi show will be releasing in May, 2022.

This report comes from Reddit where someone took a screen shot of the post BEFORE he protected his tweets.

This was after the Twitter Star Wars account posted this one:


So some think that the person got the comic release confused with the show and then hid their tweets to cover it up. However, Disney/Marvel could be releasing the comic around the time of the show because they are obsessed with this idea of “synergy” and “trans media” pushes.

I’m just trying to get over that calls himself the “Brandalorian.”

Fans are eagerly awaiting the release date for the show. It keeps being hyped up. Hopefully Obi-Wan will actually be the star in his own show unlike Boba Fett, but I’m not holding my breath. I’m waiting for Disney to have some new character come in (probably a woman), who will be the true reason why Obi-Wan made it long enough to meet Luke and get him off of Tatooine, or something like that. They will also have a cute baby creature of some kind to sell merchandise.  I’m mostly kidding, but I hope that this doesn’t happen.

The show is supposed to take place between the prequel trilogy and the actual first Star Wars film, ‘A New Hope.’

No official announcement has been made and this could be an oopsie post or a case of mistaking the comic for the show. Only time will tell.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.
