Today in Toronto, an “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Marathon Screening event took place, featuring all six episodes of the series, with simultaneous finale episode screenings in Cineplex theaters in nine other Canadian markets. Director Deborah Chow and Hayden Christensen, who are both from Toronto, were on hand to introduce the screening at the red-carpet event. A Q&A with Chow and Christensen followed the screening and was livestreamed to participating theaters in Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Ottawa, London, and Halifax.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks Hayden Christensen’s return in Darth Vader’s role. 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, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.

Obi-Want begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his most significant 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.

The “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series finale began streaming today. All six episodes are available exclusively on Disney+.
