The Disney + TV series dedicated to Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released with a slight delay compared to the previously announced date, but there is still good news for fans waiting to discover this new narrative strand of the Star Wars universe. First the (little) bad news: from Wednesday 25 May to Friday 27 May.
Nothing dramatic, mind you, at the limit you could only object that the series will not be able to respect the debut on a historic date for Star Wars fans since May 25, 2022 will celebrate the 45th anniversary of the release in theaters of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (the first Star Wars movie, so to speak).
There good news lies in the fact that on Disney + on May 27 will arrive two episodes of the six that make up the series. So a couple of days late that Disney + will be forgiven by offering immediately to the first two episodes. After the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the next will be released every Wednesday, so the final episode will arrive on June 22nd.
The story begins 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which the Jedi master experienced his greatest defeat, the passage to the dark side of his padawan Anakin Skywalker who becomes Darth Vader. Hayden Christensen will return as the evil Sith Lord. The cast is joined by Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. Ewan McGregor, in addition to playing Obi-Wan Kenobi once again, is also executive producer along with Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan and Deborah Chow.
