Today, Star Wars fans have been treated to the first teaser for Obi-Wan Kenobi, an upcoming limited series from Disney+. The production is set to premiere on May 25th, exactly forty-five years since the first time the character appeared on our screens as portrayed by Alec Guinness in Star Wars: A New Hope.

The story kicks off ten years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi suffered his greatest defeat  – the downfall of his best friend and apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. In the trailer, we witness Obi-Wan Kenobi keeping a watchful eye on a young Luke Skywalker as he fends off the Grand Inquisitor’s quest to crush the remaining Jedi.

Returning alongside McGregor as the iconic Jedi Master, Hayden Christensen will return to his 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.

After making her Star Wars debut with Chapter 3 of The Mandalorian, Deborah Chow is back showrunning and directing the series, which Job Harold wrote.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is scheduled to drop on Disney+ on May 25th, 2022.
