It’s Friday and time to take a look at what’s been added onto Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland today, which includes the first two episodes of the new Star Wars series, “Obi-Wan Kenobi” plus a brand new National Geographic documentary, “We Feed People”.
Here’s the rundown:
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi – Episode 1 & 2
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.
We Feed People
From Director Ron Howard and producers Brian Grazer and Imagine Documentaries, “We Feed People” spotlights chef José Andrés and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen’s incredible mission and evolution over 12 years, from being a scrappy group of grassroots volunteers to becoming one of the most highly regarded humanitarian aid organizations in the disaster relief sector. As the world’s most prominent food-focused first responders, Andrés and the World Central Kitchen team have snapped into action, combating hunger in the wake of crisis by serving over 60 million meals to date.
The film takes an in-depth look at World Central Kitchen’s collaborations with local chefs to feed affected people and first responders, which has instilled an extraordinary sense of hope in these communities. From the frontlines of a crisis to the backrooms of the kitchen, the film examines the restoration of community and the activation of change—one meal at a time.
