‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ premiere date delayed by two days

The Star Wars live-action spin-off series Obi-Wan Kenobi has seen it’s release pushed back by two days to May 27th, however the first two episodes will be released that the same time the streamer has announced today. The series see’s Ewan McGregor reprising his role as the Jedi Master and Hayden Christensen returning as Darth Vader. It is thought the move is a way to condense Disney’s already packed release schedule; with further Marvel & Star Wars shows due to be released this year.


Obi-Wan Kenobi is set a decade after the events in Revenge of the Sith and all members of the Jedi Order have either been killed or exiled. The series is expected to include a rematch between Obi-Wan and his dark side apprentice.

Other previously announced actors in the series include Joel EdgertonBonnie PiesseKumail Nanjiani, Indira VarmaRupert Friend and O’Shea Jackson Jr.

The six-episode series is directed by The Mandalorian veteran Deborah Chow.
