While it was announced back in 2019, fans are still eagerly awaiting the release of Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney Plus.
Here is everything you need to know about the show, from the release date to cast, spoilers and more.
When will Obi-Wan Kenobi come out on Disney Plus?
While there is not a confirmed release date yet, Ewan McGregor revealed in October 2020 that filming would begin in March 2021.
The season will comprise six episodes, making it a limited series. Fans have speculated that the show will be out in either late 2021 or early 2022.
Will there be another season of Obi-Wan Kenobi?
While there are currently no plans for another season, it makes sense to have an Obi-Wan Kenobi season two on Disney Plus if the Star Wars show does well in its first round.
Obi-Wan Kenobi spoilers and fan theories
What we know so far is that the series is set 8 to 10 years after the events which went down in Revenge of the Sith, and 11 years before A New Hope.
This means that the setting is the era where the Jedi Order is practically non-existent.
We also know that tension is set to go down between Kenobi and Darth Vader, with McGregor saying ‘Those two will have another swing at each other’.
Further hints from McGregor include the fact Kenobi will be older – and hopefully wiser – as he himself is now closer in age to Alec Guinness, the first actor to play Kenobi.
He told Graham Norton in October 2020: ‘It’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi story…it’s not all [about] me, but it certainly will be a lot of me.’
Obi-Wan Kenobi cast
The latest news is that Hayden Christensen will be returning as Darth Vader for the series, which Ewan McGregor described as ‘the most beautiful thing of all’.
The news was revealed in a featurette about the show which was played during the Disney Investor Day.
Apart from this casting, the only other confirmed actor is McGregor in the title role.
Is there a trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi?
There is not currently a trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi, but there will likely be one in the run-up to its release.
A featurette on the latest news, including casting, was released during the Disney Investor Day.
Where is Obi-Wan Kenobi filmed?
Early December 2020 saw Boston residents excited about reports that some of the show would be filmed in their location, but it turns out the filming destination is actually Boston in England.
