Yesterday after the big Hasbro Pulse reveal, Lucasfilm decided to drop an official poster and released date for Kenobi! From the image below we now know the first episode drops May 25th on Disney Plus. Many have speculated that it would debut on May 5th (the official Star Wars day), but apparently Lucasfilm has other plans.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek dropped the news during Disney’s investor’s call. Check out the poster below.
The official description is as follows…
Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new Disney+ limited series from Lucasfilm, will debut exclusively on Disney+ May 25. The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master.
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 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.
