The anticipation of the next Obi-Wan Kenobi film is one of the most uniting aspects of the Star Wars fandom for fans of all ages. After Ewan McGregor’s outstanding debut in The Phantom Menace, Obi-Wan went from being a distant and cynical figure in the original trilogy to being one of the most famous and well-liked characters in the prequels. With appearances in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and even the conclusion of Obi-archenemy Wan’s Darth Maul, some may have believed that we had seen everything. With recurring figures such as Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader and the terrifying Grand Inquisitor, it is sure that Lucasfilm will continue to add complexity to Obi-saga. Wan’s
What Does Obi-Wan Kenobi Represent?
This series appears to be filling in the blanks of how the Inquisitors operated and what Obi-Wan was doing while his exile in Tatooine’s desolate desert.
Who is in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cast?
Obi-Wan Kenobi would have a stellar cast if only Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen were cast. Fortunately, the regular season cast is filled with outstanding actors. As the Grand Inquisitor, Rupert Friend will appear in all six episodes of the miniseries. In addition to appearing in all six episodes, Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse will reprise their roles as Owen and Beru Lars, respectively, in the Star Wars world. Moses Ingram will debut as the new Inquisitor Reva, and Sung Kang will join him as the Fifth brother to complete the majority of the regular season Inquisitors.
All six episodes of the miniseries feature season regulars Kumail Nanjiani, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, Maya Erskine, and O’Shea Jackson Jr. It appears that the developers are trying to conceal their names as much as possible, so maybe subsequent previews will offer us a hint. There have been suggestions that Kumail Nanjiani may portray an unidentified droid, which would continue Lucasfilm’s recent tendency of casting comedians as droids in Star Wars films.
Check out the Obi-Wan Kenobi Trailers
A few enticing glimpses of the next series have been released thus far. The first discusses the next series from Ewan McGregor and the series’s director, Deborah Chow. Chow also worked on a couple of episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian and revealed where the character’s origins might be seen. McGregor’s remarks on hiring Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader imply that we may get to witness their battle before Obi-sacrifice Wan’s on the first Death Star.
Disney published a brief teaser trailer on March 9, 2022, providing a second look at the film. Again, Obi-Wan appears to have given up, but this teaser marks the return of composer John Williams with “The Duel of the Fates” and other legendary Star Wars music. In addition, we get our first glimpse at the series’ antagonists, including the new Inquisitor Reva, the Fifth Brother, the Grand Inquisitor, and even Vader’s famed breathing. This teaser reveals that the program will feature a tremendous deal of action and a number of characters we’ve already seen in Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: Fallen Order. On Star Wars Day (May 4, 2022), a brand-new teaser featuring a first look at Kumail Nanjiani’s character was released.
When Will Obi-Wan Kenobi Be Made Available And Where To Watch
The miniseries will premiere in the United States on Disney+ on May 27, 2022. Initially, the debut of the show was scheduled for May 25. If you believed that date brought to mind something significant, you would be correct. On May 25, we will commemorate the 45th anniversary of the release of A New Hope, which continues the heritage of expanding upon the character’s initial tale. Fortunately for the international public, Obi-Wan looks to be released on the same day everywhere so that everyone can watch it simultaneously.
When does Obi-Wan Kenobi take place?
Star Wars canon is so complex and extensive that even the most knowledgeable fans must occasionally check the galaxy’s timeline, which takes the Battle of Yavin from “A New Hope” as its year zero. The events of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” will occur around ten years after “Revenge of the Sith” and nine years before “A New Hope,” or 9 BBY, when the Empire is at its height of power. We hear Obi-Wan lamenting that in the trailer “The war has ended. We lost.” Obi-Wan has carried out his task to conceal himself and his young charge for nearly a decade, implying that Luke Skywalker is approximately 10 years old.
Beyond this, we have the least amount of official information on the Jedi Master’s fate during this era, allowing series writers greater creative freedom with the character and plot arc. Other “Star Wars” events that occurred around this period include Solo and “Star Wars Rebels.” Hence, some of our favorite characters, locations, and storylines from those projects might collide with “Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
