Disney+ releases ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ trailer to kick off Star Wars Day


Happy Star Wars Day! Today, to kick off Star Wars Day, Disney+ released a brand-new trailer and key art for Obi-Wan Kenobi (starring Ewan McGregor), offering a riveting look at the highly anticipated limited series. 

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where 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 (Hayden Christenson).

According to Inside the Magic, the series has been granted the most family-friendly rating of any live-action Star Wars series on the streamer. They shared:

Disney+ U.K. has listed the Obi-Wan Kenobi series with a TV age rating of 9+, which is notably lower than the live-action Star Wars Disney+ series that have come before it.

By comparison, The Mandalorian was rated 14+ while The Book of Boba Fett was rated 12+. Obi-Wan Kenobi’s rating is the same as Star Wars: Visions, although it’s higher than The Clone Wars and The Bad Batch (6+).

The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is directed by Deborah Chow and executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Chow, McGregor, and Joby Harold.

The 6-part series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Friday, May 27, with the first two episodes. Following the premiere, the series will stream weekly on Wednesdays, until the finale on Wednesday, June 22.
