Obi-Wan Kenobi Release Date

The long-awaited Obi-Wan Kenobi series has finally set a release date, one Star Wars fans will recognize. Obi-Wan Kenobi, starring Ewan McGregor as the iconic Jedi Master, will release on May 25. That date, of course, is when the original Star Wars movie hit theaters.

A release from Disney shares more about what this series will entail:

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.

Ten years seems like a long time, but also just about right. I do hope we move quickly away from Tatooine as I’m quite tired of seeing the desert planet in every iteration of Star Wars on television.

Also, the teaser poster looks great.
