Did you feel a disturbance in the Force? If so, it’s likely because Disney+ just announced that Obi-Wan Kenobi, the highly anticipated new limited series from Lucasfilm, will debut exclusively on the streaming service on May 25! It will feature Ewan McGregor reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master and Hayden Christensen returning in the role of Darth Vader. In addition to announcing a premiere date, Disney+ also shared a new poster for the series.
The story of Obi-Wan Kenobi is set 10 years after the dramatic events of the film Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005), where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker (Christensen), who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. Joining McGregor and Christensen onscreen will be Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
