Disney has released a selection of new images that give our first look at Ewan McGregor in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi show on Disney+.
Star Wars fans have been longing to see McGregor reprise his role of the beloved Obi-Wan Kenobi. Thankfully, they don’t have much longer to wait. The upcoming Disney+ series is set to premiere on May 25th. It will join The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett in the collection of canon Star Wars TV shows.
Now, Entertainment Weekly has published the first images that give us some clues as to what we can expect. The front cover shows Kenobi standing as proudly as when we last saw him, blue lightsabre ignited and sporting the same excellent beard. His robes and hair look a little rough around the edges, which is fair given this series is set after his fight with Darth Vader on Mustafar.
Other images show Kenobi in different locations. One shows him being seemingly sneaky, peering round a corner. Another shows him dwelling in some sort of cave, seemingly on Tatooine where we know he’s watching over Luke Skywalker.
Obi-Wan Kenobi – Familiar Faces
We also get a glimpse at some of the other characters from the show. Joel Edgerton is reprising his role as the young version of Uncle Owen, Luke Skywalker’s custodian. He can be seen facing off against Reva, a force sensitive inquisitor. The inquisitors were sent out by the Emperor shortly after Order 66 to hunt down remaining Jedi. You might recognise them from Jedi Fallen Order, one of which serves as the main villain.
Reva can be seen in several of these new images, and she looks to be properly menacing. We can be assured that she’ll be the main antagonist for Kenobi as he tries to keep both himself and Luke hidden.
After seeing these new images, we’re seriously looking forward to watching the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show. Especially since we know that John Williams has returned to score the project. Let us know what you think of these images across our social channels.
