Obi-Wan Kenobi

A Jedi Master is on the Run

More than 15 years since he’d last appeared in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005), actor Ewan McGregor reprised his beloved role as a Jedi  for the new series Obi-Wan Kenobi. Set in the mysterious timeline between Sith and the classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), the series is an atmospheric, gritty and emotional character-based story that explores how Obi-Wan went from the warrior hero we see in the prequels to the Jedi Master we see in the original trilogy.

Premiering on Disney+ in May of 2022, the six-part story was directed by Deborah Chow, a veteran of Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian, and featured other familiar cast members like Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader along with new stars like Moses Ingram (Reva Sevander), Rupert Friend (the Inquisitor), Indira Varma (Tala Durith), and young Vivien Lyra Blair (Princess Leia). In addition to Chow and McGregor, the series was executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Michelle Rejwan.


The Story

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the few surviving Jedi Knights are hunted by Darth Vader and his Inquisitors. Obi-Wan Kenobi lives in hiding on the desert world of Tatooine, but soon tragic events set him on a journey that leads to an unexpected friendship and a frightening reunion.

I’m not who I used to be.
