Obi-Wan Kenobi Image Offers Another Look at Ewan McGregor’s Return

It’s just over a month before we will be reunited with Ewan McGregor as the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, courtesy of Disney+, and Total Film has now offered another glimpse at the actor in the beloved Star Wars role. Donned once again in a hooded robe with his lightsaber by his side, the familiar traits disguise what looks to be a much world-wearier Obi-Wan. Look at his eyes. This guy has seen some stuff.

Directed by The Mandalorian’s Deborah Chow, Obi-Wan Kenobi will pick up with Obi-Wan around ten years after the events of 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The Jedi Master is now watching over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, with the series taking the beloved Star Wars character on an adventure that is expected to lead into Star Wars: A New Hope. Thanks to the recently released, hugely exciting trailer, we now know that Obi-Wan Kenobi will feature a major role for The Inquisitors, with Moses Ingram starring as the Third Sister, Sung Kang as the Fifth Brother, and Rupert Friend leading the pack of Jedi hunters as the Grand Inquisitor.


Recent rumors have also claimed that the series will begin with the character living quietly as “Ben Kenobi,” before being tracked down by a young Jedi named Nari, who decides to find the Jedi Master after being inspired by a message sent by Obi-Wan to his fellow Jedi Knights during the chaos caused by the infamous Order 66.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Will Pick Up with the Jedi Master During a Dark Time for the Galaxy


So far, things sound pretty awful for the exiled Jedi, with Obi-Wan Kenobi showrunner Joby Harold teasing that things will be even worse than they appear. “It takes place 10 years after Revenge of the Sith, in a time of darkness in the galaxy,” he revealed. “The Empire is in the ascendancy. And all the horrors that come with the Empire are being made manifest throughout the galaxy. And the Jedi Order as we know them are being all but wiped out.”

Thankfully, it sounds like Obi-Wan will cling to his faith despite the dark times. “So everything that was in the prequels has crumbled,” Harold continued. “Those surviving Jedi, those that do survive, are on the run, and they’re in hiding. And Vader and his Inquisitors are chasing them to the end of the galaxy. Within that hopeless fatalistic world, we find possibly the most famous of all our surviving Jedi in hiding struggling with that faith that defines the Jedi, and wanting to hold onto it and hoping to regain that faith within that sort of hopeless world.”

Directed by Deborah Chow, with Joby Harold serving as showrunner, and starring Ewan McGregor, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Sung Kang, Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine, as well as the return of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi is scheduled to premiere on May 27, 2022, on Disney+. The series will run for six episodes ending on June 22.
