Ewan McGregor took to social media today to announce that the premiere date for Obi-Wan Kenobi, originally scheduled for May 25th, has been moved to May 27th. Not only that, but with the move comes an extra episode dropping as well! That mean episode one and two drop May 27th.
Why the move? Probably because they want to debut the first episode at Star Wars Celebration. It seems like Star Wars Celebration is shaping up to be a fantastic show!
About Obi-Wan Kenobi:
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 stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and 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.
