Obi-Wan Kenobi is the next Star Wars series to land on Disney+. The limited series, which is set to premiere in May, will drop viewers into the aftermath of the events that occurred in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
As the title makes clear, we’ll be along for an adventure with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor has been tapped to reprise his role as the iconic character. When speaking to Entertainment Weekly, McGregor disclosed that the Jedi is not in a good place. He describes Obi-Wan as “rather broken, and faithless, and beaten, somewhat given up.”
However, the Jedi is still on a mission. He’s determined to keep an eye on Luke Skywalker, though that task will be made difficult by Inquisitor Reva (Moses Ingram), an ambitious member of the Empire who’s on the hunt for Jedi in hiding.
Reva won’t be Obi-Wan’s only foe. Hayden Christensen will return to play Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan’s former Padawan and friend who crossed over to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Not only are we expecting an epic battle between the two, we’re also preparing for more heartbreak as Obi-Wan contends with the loss of a man he considered to be his brother.
Here’s who else is in the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi!
