It seems as if our first bit of merchandise for the upcoming Disney Plus Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be a couple of lightsabers from Hasbro’s Lightsaber Forge series. The lightsabers belong to Obi-Wan and Darth Vader.
From the image below, we can tell that the image of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the package is from the new series. Comparing his look from the official poster, to that of the box image, you can see the scarf around his neck, which was not seen in any other movie.
No word on pricing or availability from Hasbro yet, as the official solicitations have not yet been released. It is still exciting to see new Star Wars product coming rather soon, especially since there was a real lack of product for previous Disney Plus shows.
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.
The series 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.
