When is the Obi-Wan Kenobi series release date?

As early as 2013, Disney’s desire to create series that bridged the main episodes was on the table. Originally conceived as a feature film, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi finally takes the form of a 6-episode miniseries. After script issues and a total story overhaul, Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian, Better Call Saul, Mr. Robot) takes over the project. Long awaited by fans, we now know that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will point to the end of its lightsaber May 27, 2022.


With a Disney-signed project, we suspect the series will air on their SVOD service Disney +. You will be able to find the first two episodes starting from May 27, 2022. The availability of the following ones will resume the usual rhythm of the streaming platform, ie one new episode per week. For the moment, the American entertainment giant has not communicated on a potential sequel, but it would not surprise anyone because Obi-Wan remains one of the characters, if not THE most appreciated character of the whole saga by fans.

What is the synopsis of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series?

10 years Revenge of the Sith and nine years earlier A new hopeseries Obi-Wan Kenobi plunges us into the heart of an exciting adventure of the famous Jedi. The Jedi Order, once blue helmets, has fallen. Sith Emperor Palpatine now rules the entire galaxy with an iron fist. The Jedi Master will face many challenges if he is to complete his mission to protect young Luke Skywalker. Obi-Wan wants to succeed where he failed in the past with Padme’s death. In particular, he will have to face his fallen apprentice, the terrifying Sith Darth Vader, and the imperial inquisitors tasked with tracking down the last surviving Jedi of Order 66.


When Disney put the project into motion, a question obviously arose: where is the Obi-Wan Kenobi series in the Star Wars saga chronologically? After all, such a vast and well-stocked universe for 45 years now must maintain a certain coherence. Faced with the growing number of films, series and video games in development and already available, the creators of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series immediately announced Obi-Wan Kenobi’s place in the saga. The miniseries then takes place between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.

Who is the cast of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series?

Who says cult saga, says casting that is the same! We inevitably find Ewan McGregor like Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Jedi thus resumes service 17 years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The role of the terrifying Sith Darth Vader, once known as Anakin Skywalker, is cast Hayden Christensen (Star Wars, Sweater). Rupert friend (Hitman, The Death of Stalin) joins the dark side as the Grand Inquisitor. A casting that he announces is good only for this next series stamped with the “Star Wars” seal.
