The new Obi-Wan Kenobi

Are you ready for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series? The Star Wars show is heading to Disney Plus soon and, best of all, there are two episodes coming at once. The TV series was expected to land on May 25, but will now arrive on May 27. Before then, though, there's a lot to take in, especially following our world-exclusive interviews with the likes of Ewan McGregor, who's back as Obi-Wan for the first time since the prequels, and Hayden Christensen, once again in the Darth Vader suit.


There is so much anticipation for the series as it is the first series who come directly in the path of the movies and will give knowledge to the history.

Story driven

As the series come out stop by to get up to date Obi-Wan Kenobi, the most highly anticipated Star Wars show yet (besides maybe The Mandalorian season 2).

The young Jedi Leia

Balance to the force

So, what do we know about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Well, there's a superb teaser that managed to give very little away. Luckily, director Deborah Chow was a little more forthcoming in our interviews with her. We can also confirm that the Clone Wars character the Grand Inquisitor will be hunting down Jedi, and that a young Luke Skywalker will make an appearance – though the extent of his role remains to be seen as Obi-Wan will leave Tatooine.

When Obi-Wan Kenobi was first announced, most of the Star Wars fandom assumed that this show's focus would be on young Luke Skywalker and Ben's mission to protect him from afar. And that is the case, at first. Early on, Obi-Wan watches Luke with some not-at-all creepy binoculars, and shares tense words with the boy's Uncle Owen too.
But then, something unexpected happens. Out of nowhere, our perspective suddenly shifts to a young Leia Organa, who's living out her life as a reluctant royal on the planet Alderaan.
