To commemorate Star Wars Day, May 4th, a second trailer for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series has been published. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) tries to persuade Owen Lars (Joel Edgerton) to let him teach a young Luke Skywalker in it. “Did you train his father in the same way?” Obi-Wan gets a retort from Owen. The six-episode series Obi-Wan Kenobi will launch on the streaming site on Friday, May 27th.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is hiding on Tatooine ten years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, keeping a watch on a young Luke Skywalker from afar. The Empire has taken control of the galaxy at this point in the Star Wars tale, and Vader’s Inquisitors are hunting down and killing any remaining Jedi. After previously appearing in different extended universe stories, these fearsome foes are slated to make their live-action debut in Kenobi.
Hayden Christensen will resume his role as Darth Vader from the prequels in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Despite the fact that Darth Maul is still alive and well at this point in the Star Wars history (sure, he was technically split in two in Episode I, but… mechanical legs), series director Deborah Chow has stated that he will not appear.
