Disney has dropped a brand new trailer for it’s next Star Wars limited series which will see Ewan McGregor return as the iconic Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The below tease looks epic with John Williams’ masterful Dual of the Fates (my favorite piece of Star Wars music) playing in the background. Take a look!
McGregor is joined by Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Joel Edgerton (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith), Bonnie Piesse (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith), Kumail Nanjiani (Eternals), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Rupert Friend (Homeland), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Godzilla: King of the Monsters), Sung Kang (F9: The Fast Saga), Simone Kessell (Of Kings and Prophets), and Benny Safdie (Uncut Gems).
Most notably, Hayden Christensen returns as he will now be playing Darth Vader as this series takes place after the fall of the Jedi in Revenge of the Sith.
After the stumble that was The Book of Boba Fett, this series looks like it’ll correct that and certainly looks like it could be a theatrical movie with the special effects and grand adventure.
Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres on May 25th only on Disney+!
