‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Is Now on Streaming
For years, it seemed like Ewan McGregor’s tenure as Obi-Wan Kenobi was done forever. The prequels were over, Obi-Wan was hanging out in the desert watching over Luke Skywalker (and slowly turning into Alec Guinness), and that was that.
Now, almost 20 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, McGregor makes his surprising return to the franchise with his own Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Set about 10 years after the events of the prequels, the show finds Obi-Wan still on Tatooine, looking after Luke — and still hunted by his old apprentice Darth Vader, played by another series veteran we never thought we’d see again, Hayden Christensen.
Finally, the show is available to stream online; you can watch it right now on Disney+. Here is the most recent trailer for the show:
Here is the series’ official synopsis
