If you’ve ever wondered what Obi-Wan Kenobi was up to while in exile on Tatooine, now is your chance. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney+’s upcoming live-action Star Wars miniseries, will reveal previously unseen aspects of his life.
After the events of Revenge of the Sith, the Skywalker twins are whisked away to hide from their Sith Lord father in this newest message from the galaxy far, far away.
In contrast to Bail Organa’s care for Leia, who will be reared as a princess, Obi-Wan is forced to watch from afar while Luke is sent to live with Owen and Beru Lars on a moisture farm.
When Will Obi-Wan Kenobi Release?
The miniseries will premiere on Disney+ in the United States on May 27, 2022. The show was supposed to launch on May 25th, however, it was pushed back. As the 45th anniversary of the release of A New Hope approaches, we are continuing the tradition of expanding on the genesis narrative of our beloved characters.
Obi-Wan appears to be released internationally on the same day, thus the international public will be able to enjoy it at the same time. Fortunately for them.
What Will Be the Duration of Each Episode?
The six-part series will be roughly 45 minutes long on average, although there have been reports that some episodes could be as long as an hour and twenty minutes.
Whatever happens, fans can expect an extra 4.5 hours of Star Wars programming as a result of the deal being struck. A couple of extra hours of content is a blessing for fans, considering the miniseries was originally planned to be in movie format.
Will It Premiere Earlier Than Expected?
It was revealed Thursday night that “Obi-Wan Kenobi” would premiere on Disney+ a few hours earlier than originally intended.
The first two episodes of the show, starring Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, will be streamed online Thursday at 9 p.m. PT on the West Coast. They were originally scheduled to go on sale at midnight, but have already been pushed back one hour.
Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere at 7 p.m. PT at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, California, earlier today, and now viewers at home will be able to see the show early as well.

Who Is Included in the Cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Even if Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen were the only main actors in the cast, Obi-Wan Kenobi would still have a stellar cast. Fortunately, the rest of the cast is full of outstanding actors. Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse will reprise their roles as Owen and Beru Lars in all six episodes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, respectively.
In addition to Moses Ingram as the new Inquisitor Reva and Sung Kang as the Fifth Brother, the regular season Inquisitors will be rounded out by Sung Kang.
Five cast members are identified as season regulars in the miniseries: Kumail Nanjiani (Simone Kessell), Benny Safdie (Beny Safdie), Maya Erskins, and OShea Jackson Jr (O-Shea Jackson Jr.).
We do know a handful of the special guests that will be joining Kenobi on his adventure through the galaxy. Nyche will be played by Marisé lvarez. Tia, the Imperial officer played by Indira Varma in the teaser trailer, will appear in the film.
For the first time, we’ll get a glimpse into the life of Grant Feely’s Luke Skywalker as a young boy. Obi-Wan Kenobi will only have Luke in one episode, despite his regular appearances in other pros.
What Will Be the Storyline of Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Inquisitors and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s exile to Tatooine appear to be filling in some gaps in our knowledge of how the Inquisitors operated and what Obi-Wan was doing during his time in the desert wastes.
An explanation of how the Inquisitor movement came to appear to be given in this account. Hayden Christensen, who plays Darth Vader, will appear in every episode as well as all of the Inquisitors. Additionally, the Fortress Inquisitorius on the moon Nur is shown in several of the trailer’s sequences.
Despite the fact that the majority of the series takes place in the same desert world, you may have noticed a new locale in the trailer. Daiyu is the name of the new planet that has a distinct “Hong Kong” vibe about it.
Cutscenes show Obi-Wan on the planet, but not much is known about it or what drew him there. A pleasant change from Tatooine, where recent Star Wars films have spent much time, is also an advantage.
How Other Star Wars Projects Are Related to Obi-Wan Kenobi?
In the Star Wars world, Obi-Wan Kenobi stands at a fork in the road for a plethora of endeavors. Beyond those already mentioned, we know the show takes place before shows like Andor and Rebels.
We may expect Star Wars: Fallen Order 2 to include connections to the series as well, given the number of nods to the original game and hints to the future in The Book of Boba Fett’s Fallen Order sequences.
