Star Wars is adding a new series to Disney+ in May with ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi.” The new six episode, limited series, has been highly anticipated for awhile now and finally we have a teaser trailer.
Earlier today we shared a look at Entertainment Weekly’s behind the scenes look at the show and a couple of the characters. Now we have a better look with this video.
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ teaser:
Here is the write-up from YouTube:
“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 series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and 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 directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold”
In the trailer we have a couple nods to the original trilogy, like a look at the Lars’ moisture farm through macrobinoculars, like we saw in ‘A New Hope.’
Luke Skywalker as a child is shown as well.
I really want this one to be good so I hope they don’t mess it up, but it is a possibility as it seemingly changes the timeline and places Vader and Obi-Wan together, possibly fighting, before ‘A New Hope.’
The Inquisitors seem to be a focus as well, which could be an exciting twist.
I guess we will soon find out. ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ releases on May 25, 2022.
