If you’re sensing a disturbance in the Force, that’s probably the palpable excitement surrounding Obi-Wan Kenobi, which premieres this May. Here’s everything we know so far about Disney+’s latest Star Wars series.
Ewan McGregor headlines the six-episode limited series as the beloved Jedi Master, who’s been on the run after being branded a traitor to the Galactic Empire. The show will reunite McGregor with Hayden Christensen, who will again suit up as Darth Vader aka Anakin Skywalker.
Set after the events of 2005’s Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Obi-Wan defeated Anakin Skywalker on Mustafar, the series finds its title character hiding out from the Imperial Inquisitors sent to apprehend him (and all surviving Jedi following their mass execution under Order 66, as depicted in Revenge of the Sith).
While Obi-Wan went into seclusion on Tatooine, Anakin rose to power within the Empire, as Vader. The official trailer teases a long-awaited face-to-face between the Jedi Master and his former apprentice, which you can check out here.
As we gear up for new episodes arriving this month, here’s everything you need to know about Obi-Wan Kenobi.
