OBI-WAN KENOBI star Ewan McGregor took to social media today to confirm that the debut of the highly-anticipated Disney+ series has been pushed to Friday May 27, 2022. The announcement of the two-day delay also included a confirmation of a two-episode premiere! So we have to wait two extra days but we’ll get a whole extra episode, not a bad trade off!
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE SITH where 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 as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and 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.
