The first look poster for Ewan McGregor in Obi-Wan Kenobi was revealed. The poster reveals older Obi-Wan Kenobi walking through the sands of Tatooine. “Obi-Wan Kenobi begins 10 years after the dramatic events of 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. Check out the poster from Disney and Lucasfilm below.
The series stars Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Darth Vader.
“Oh my gosh, well I loved playing him again. I mean it’s quite interesting, after the experience of making the first three films and living through sort of their reception in the world, which wasn’t always glowing, I have to say. And then now, meeting the generation who we made those films for, the children then – and now, people in their late teens or early 20s, those people who were kids who we made those films for, they loved them. To them, they’re their Star Wars films, you know? For us, it was the original films of the 70s, but for them, it was our films were their Star Wars.”
With the first look poster premiere date for Obi-Wan Kenobi, fans are too excited to see the trailer of the series. Obi-Wan Kenobi will debut on Disney+ on May 25, 2022.
