Happy May the 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day!
There’s a lot happening today, but this morning a brand new trailer, as well as a new poster, was released for the highly-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which premieres later this month. Take a look at the trailer:
The trailer focuses on the Inquisitors, the hunt for Kenobi, and the emotional stakes of Kenobi and Anakin – which will lead to a rematch with his former apprentice, now Darth Vader.
The first two episodes of the show will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, May 27, with the following four episodes coming on the next four subsequent Wednesdays. The series is directed by Deborah Chow and stars Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. They are joined by Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars, Bonnie Piesse as Beru Lars, Moses Ingram as Reva (the 3rd Sister), Rupert Friend as the Grand Inquisitor, Sung Kang as the 5th Brother, Indira Varma as an Imperial officer, and others like Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and more in currently unknown roles.
In addition to the trailer, a brand new poster for the series was released as well, highlighting the fact that Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader will be at the heart of this series:
