Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the highly anticipated projects of Star Wars. The character was first introduced in Star Wars: A New Hope. With Ewan McGregor returning after 18 years to reprise his role as Obi-Wan, Hayden Christensen will also return as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Fans were excited about the series since it was first announced in 2019.
This past Thursday Star Wars’ Official Twitter page released a 40-second long video featuring Ewan McGregor thanking fans for their excitement for the upcoming series while announcing new changes that were coming. The series which was previously set to premiere on May 25th will now have been delayed for two days, moving its premiere date to May 27, not only that, the new series will now premiere with two episodes.
You can read Ewan McGregor’s full statement below:
Hello Star Wars fans. Thank you for all your incredible support and response to Obi-Wan Kenobi. I have some important news. Our premiere date is moving just a couple of days from Wednesday to Friday May the 27th. But here’s the exciting part: the first two episodes will premiere together. So make sure you tune in to both episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, streaming Friday, May the 27th, exclusively on Disney+.”
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Will Not Coincide With A Marvel Series.
When Disney Plus dropped the trailer of ‘Ms. Marvel’, which is going to premiere on June 8, fans have started thinking that its episode will be released with ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’. But now instead of releasing on Wednesdays, Obi-Wan will now be released on Fridays, which was the original premiere day for Disney Plus’ projects before ‘Loki’ changed it to Wednesday. This could also point to an episode release change for the upcoming third season of ‘The Mandalorian’
