From a galaxy far, far away, the first official images of Obi-Wan Kenobithe upcoming series live action from the Star Wars universe. The focus will be on the namesake (and much-loved) Jedi Knight, ten years after the events of the film. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005), culminating in the rise of Darth Vader, the establishment of the Galactic Empire, and Kenobi’s exile on the planet Tatooine.
Now, it’s time to find out what happened to the legendary character before he teamed up with Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in delivering the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance. And these new glimpses of the television show are more than enough to get us very excited.
Back in the shoes of the titular character from Obi-Wan Kenobifigure the famous Ewan McGregor, who took on that same role in the prequel trilogy. In interview with ew -media with the exclusive of the first images- the Scottish actor revealed that, at the beginning of the story, we will find Kenobi “quite broken, hopeless and defeated”. However, he still has a mission in life, which is to ensure the safety of Luke Skywalker, who (as we well know) will be a key element in the fall of the Empire.
On the other hand, the conflict of the series will push Obi-Wan Kenobi far from his desert refuge. Hooded again, the hero will travel to the planet Daiyu, which has “a Hong Kong vibe,” according to the screenwriter. Joby Harold. “He’s got a graffiti-ridden nightlife and he’s kind of casual,” she claimed. “It just has a different meaning and a different feel.”
Accompanying Ewan McGregor in the cast, figure Moses Ingram (The Tragedy of Macbeth), in the role of Reva, the inquisitor. She is an ambitious antagonist tasked with hunting down the Jedi who are still alive. And to Kenobi’s bad luck, she is Force-sensitive, so she can sense her presence.
Reva becomes a kind of duo with Darth Vader, played by Hayden Christensen. “They share a common dark side goal,” Ingram stated (via ew). “They’re on the same team.”
Joel Edgerton also joins the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi, in the role of Owen Lars, Luke Skywalker’s uncle. The Australian was no stranger to Star Wars, as he brought the same character to life in the Episode II: Attack of the Clones and in the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. “Thank you, George, for casting Joel Edgerton as Uncle Owen,” said Deborah Chow, series director. “This is all I can say.”
Composed of six episodes, Obi-Wan Kenobi will arrive in the Disney Plus catalog on May 25, 2022. Are you excited?
