Fans of ‘Star Wars’ were already aware that one of the most mythical characters in the saga poked his head in with his “Hello there!” characteristic. And now, finally, the time has come: ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ premieres trailer advancing a little of what we will see May 25 on Disney+hand in hand with this galactic series in which Ewan McGregor shares the limelight with Hayden Christensen, who also returns.
McGregor returns to the role he embodied in the prequel trilogy to tell us what happens 10 years after the dramatic events of ‘Episode III – Revenge of the Sith’, a film in which the character played by Christensen went over to the Dark Side. Kenobi feels like this “pretty shattered, faithless, beaten And having given up somehow“ after having to witness the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. Despite this she will focus on his mission: keeping the son of the now Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, safe and secret, which hides in the dunes of Tatooine. In fact, in this first teaser we see how Obi-Wan keeps his distance but doesn’t take his eyes off the little boy.without a doubt one of the highlights of the advance along with the appearance of the Grand Inquisitor and that spectacular lightsaber that until now we had only seen in its animated version thanks to ‘Star Wars Rebels’.
Hand in hand with this villain and making things very difficult for Kenobi, we meet Inquisitor Reva (Moses Ingram), a very bad immersed in hunting down Jedi trying to hide from the Empire. Ingram plays this character who teams up with the Grand Inquisitor and Darth Vader, an actress with whom we will see Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. Deborah Chow directs this series that has a script by Joby Haroldand for which John Williams would have composed the main theme.

Little else is known about the plot of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’, a series that, according to McGregor himself, “will satisfy the fans”. “I always felt like there was a story between Episode III, where I ended up playing Obi-Wan in the movies, and Episode IV, where Alec Guinness is Obi-Wan Kenobi. The writers [de la serie]Me and Deb and everyone, I think we created or they created a very good story. people will like it”.
So McGregor does not hide his enthusiasm to recover the characteralso reflecting on what it means such a triumphant return after the prequels were so criticized. “It’s interesting to come back after the experience of making the first three films and live that reception that was not always positive, I must say. I loved playing it again. Now the generation we made those movies for, kids then, are fans who are in their 20s, and those people who were children, they loved them. For them, it’s their ‘Star Wars’ movies, you know?”.
