New “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Trailer Proves Any Lack of Faith to be Disturbing

Disney finally dropped the hugely-anticipated first full trailer for the Disney+ Star Wars spinoff series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” in which Ewan McGregor reprises his role as the iconic Jedi Master who escaped Order 66.

Picking up 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, “Obi-Wan Kenobi” chronicles the Jedi Master’s biggest failure – the demise and eventual corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who succumbed to the Dark Side in the guise of Darth Vader. The series was written by Joby Harold, directed by Deborah Chow, and produced by McGregor, Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Joby Harold.

While the project started life as a spin-off feature film that would have been written by Hossein Amini and directed by Stephen Daldry (The Reader, Billy Elliot), it was revamped as a limited series by Amini following the box-office failure of Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018). 

McGregor expressed his enthusiasm about stepping back into the role, as he had long-anticipated being able to play a version of the character that was closer to Alec Guinness’ portrayal from the original Star Wars trilogy. Hayden Christensen will also return as Darth Vader, along with a stellar cast featuring Moses Ingram as Reva, Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars, Bonnie Piesse as Beru Whitesen Lars, Indira Varma as an Imperial officer, Rupert Friend as the Grand Inquisitor, Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.

This limited, 6-part event series will stream on Disney+ starting May 27. To tide you over, we’ll leave you with the first trailer, which suggests that the Force is strong with this show …. and there’s just no escaping a certain sinister someone.
