Disney has announced that it is moving the release of its upcoming Star Wars series, “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.

Ewan McGregor revealed in a video that Obi-Wan Kenobi will now premiere on Friday 27th May 2022. Instead of just one episode, however, fans will be treated to the first two instalments at launch, with subsequent episodes debuting each Wednesday.

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side and became the evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader.

The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.

This will also mean the series debuts in the middle of the Star Wars Celebration event taking place in Anaheim, so we should expect to see plenty of “Kenobi” excitement during the event, which takes place from May 26th until May 29th 2022.
