Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Live-Action Series to Debut in May on Disney+

Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally received a premiere date at Disney+, but it’s not May the 4th.


The Ewan McGregor-led, live-action Star Wars series will debut May 25 on the Disney-owned streaming service, Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced on the company’s earnings call Wednesday. May 25 is also the 45th anniversary of the release of Star Wars: A New Hope.



Obi-Wan Kenobi is set 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.


McGregor reprises his role as Obi-Wan alongside Anakin himself, Hayden Christensen. The series also stars Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
