Everything You Need to Know About Obi-Wan Kenobi Streaming on Disney+
1. Obi-Wan Kenobi Release Date
You will want to know when the series will be released because that is the number one thing on most people’s minds. Fans of Obi-Wan Kenobi have been eagerly anticipating his arrival on Disney+. The entire world has been excited and speculated about this new series. A few different dates are being tossed around for the Obi-Wan Kenobi release date, but December 12th is the most recent one announced so far. It will be the same day that SNL and Star Wars: The Clone Wars are released, so you’ll want to stock up on your popcorn and grab some extra friends. If you don’t have broadband internet, now might be a good time to pick up that new DSL or fibre-optic connection. Your binge-watching days have been planned out for you already, so now it’s just waiting.
2. Obi-Wan Kenobi Storyline
The biggest question on most people’s minds is what will the story be about? What is going to be happening in this new series? If you were hoping for answers to all of these questions very soon, you would be disappointed. In the build-up, the only thing that Disney has released is a short teaser about Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, there has been plenty of speculation about what we can expect from this new series. The Inquisitr has already given their take on the possible storyline, but you can go to the source and read their article below. The Inquisitr even went so far as to release some plot details leaked from an anonymous source close to the production of the series. Spoiler alert: most of what is reported in this article does not turn out to be true.
3. Obi-Wan Kenobi Cast and Crew Details
From the trailer and the teaser, we have garnered a few primary details about the cast and crew of this new series. Alan Tudyk will be playing a character named Con Vane, who is likely a mentor to Obi-Wan Kenobi. He is quite possibly the closest thing that we will get to Qui-Gon Jinn. The teaser also revealed that Ewan MacGregor would be reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan MacGregor has already been confirmed to be appearing as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Jon Favreau directed Star Wars: The Mandalorian, but that is reportedly a different period than this new series. Every time we see Obi-Wan in a new setting, he seems to be much older.
4. Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode Count
The original reports were that this series would have six episodes. There was very little in the way of details about these six episodes, except that they would be released in over a month. However, this was initially thought to be a mistake because it seemed highly irregular for Disney+. But no, it was not a mistake. After further investigation into the trailer, there will be only one episode on December 12th and then no more new episodes for three weeks. There will be a new episode earlier in the month, on December 4th, showing that the series is released every week.
5. Obi-Wan Kenobi Character Details
Based on the promotional materials, we know that Ewan MacGregor will play the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The teaser showed him going into a room where he was wearing his Jedi robe and carrying his lightsaber. He looked like a Jedi Knight as he sat down at a table, only to be interrupted by someone with a Death Star helmet. We don’t know who this character is. The Inquisitr article reports that it is Darth Vader, but that is not the case. Ewan MacGregor showed off his gray beard in what appears to be a set from the movie possible, but we can’t say for sure. The teaser also revealed some new characters and a look at some new locations.
The teaser revealed a lot about the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series, leaving us with many questions. Fortunately, we do not have much longer to wait for those answers. It will be a new adventure for us all, and you will want to be there from day one to watch the premiere of this new series.
