“Ewan McGregor returns in the iconic role of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi for a special event series on Disney+. Officially titled Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where he faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend, and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. The series is directed by Deborah Chow, who helmed memorable episodes of “The Mandalorian,” Season 1, and features the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi, official synopsis
Ewan McGregor debuted as young Obi-Wan Kenobi in 1999’s Episode I — The Phantom Menace, and he reprised the role in two sequels — Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Despite the movie’s reception, McGregor’s performance was praised by the audience and many of them wanted for Obi-Wan to get his own spin-off. And now, that wish is finally granted. Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, also returned as Darth Vader. Christensen is already set to reprise the role in the upcoming Ahsoka series.
The first two episodes of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series are now streaming on Disney+.
