The latest trailer for Disney+’s newest Star Wars series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, has been released. The trailer for the limited series shows Obi-Wan (portrayed by Ewan McGregor) watching over a young Luke Skywalker and living in hiding on the desert planet of Tatooine following the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
In the trailer, Luke’s Uncle Owen (Joel Edgerton) tells Obi-Wan to leave them alone and doesn’t want the fallen hero to train Luke in the ways of the Jedi. Obi-Wan says: “When the time comes, he must be trained,” to which Uncle Owen replies back, “Like you trained his father?” (in reference to how Anakin Skywalker turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader, portrayed by Hayden Christensen). The trailer ends with Obi-Wan seemingly coming face to face with Vader once again. Disney+ also released a new poster for the series, that features Obi-Wan and Vader.
Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to Disney+ on May 27, premiering with two episodes. New episodes will then be released every Wednesday. The series also stars Moses Ingram, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
