The trailer comes weeks before the show’s first episode, on May 27th
As part of the May the 4th celebrations, Disney has dropped a new trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi. The story follows the titular Jedi between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
Here’s the full trailer:
The new trailer shows Obi-Wan on the desert planet of Tatooine as the Galactic Empire relentlessly try to hunt him down. We’re also treated to glimpses of Luke Skywalker, a new Inquisitor, and the big man himself: Darth Vader.
The story will start 10 years after Revenge of the Sith where, as the trailer’s description puts it “Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat – the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker”. As the trailer shows us, Obi-Wan’s time on Tatooine will be anything but peaceful.
However, it looks like Tatooine won’t be the only planet in the series. The trailer also shows off what looks like Coruscant and a very watery-looking planet. Other sources have also said that there will be a rematch between Kenobi and Vader. Presumably, Obi-Wan won’t disappear part-way through this time.
The series will see the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, alongside Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. It will also be a 6-part series and will start streaming on May 27th, a couple days after the initial release date.
