Stack for the 45th anniversary of the saga.

THR had been right at the end of last week by announcing series Obi-Wan Kenobi in May 2022. We just had to wait for Disney Plus to officially announce it. Last night, the platform unveiled the first poster of the series with this date: May 25, 2022. This will mark the 45th anniversary of the release ofA New Hopethe very first film in the George Lucas saga.

First behind-the-scenes look at the Obi-Wan Kenobi series

Ewan McGregor will find the costume of the Jedi, and the deserts of Tatooine in view of this poster. Interviewed by Forbes just before Disney’s announcement, he mentioned the director of this new show, Deborah Chow, and her partner Hayden Christensen, who returns to him as Anakin Skywalker: “It was a great experience. Deborah Chow directed all the episodes and she’s very talented. She had worked on The Mandalorian, she’s a great director. She knows the world of Star Wars, much better than me! We had a good time. I can also talk about Hayden Christensen, it’s no longer a secret. He’s coming back and we were able to shoot scenes together as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and it was fantastic to work alongside him again. I won’t tell you anything about the plot though, just that I think fans of Star Wars. I always felt there was a story to be told between what happens in Episode IIIwhen I stop Obi-Wan day in the movies, and Episode IV where Alec Guiness plays Obi-Wan Kenobi. With Deb, the scriptwriters and everyone else, I find that we, finally that they, imagined a good story. I think people will like it.”

We will therefore be able to check this from May 25. Before that, Disney Plus should soon reveal the trailer for the series. During the Super Bowl this weekend?
