On May the 4th (Star Wars Day), Disney released a second trailer for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series.
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest 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.
In the trailer we see Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan trying to convince a reluctant Owen Lars (Joel Edgerton) to let him train a young Luke Skywalker. “Like you trained his father?” Owen snaps back at Obi-Wan.
The trailer ends with the instantly recognizable breaths of one Darth Vader, who, in the “Star Wars” timeline, only recently became a Sith.
Disney and Lucasfilm announced the series at the 2019 D23 Event. Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to premiere on the streaming service on Friday, May 27th and will run for six episodes.
