'Obi-Wan Kenobi' prepares for its premiere

Obi-Wan Kenobi, a new Disney+ series based on the Star Wars world, will debut on the platform at the end of May. You can now see the new trailer for him, albeit we took advantage of the time to collect what had previously been published, which was not much.

The fact that Disney+ would have an Obi-Wan Kenobi series was known for a long time, even before the global entertainment conglomerate's video-on-demand service opened. At least, that was the plan, and after several years and stumbles, it is about to become a reality.

As a result, Disney has taken use of the fact that we are on May 4, a day of celebration and honor to the galaxy series, to release a new teaser for Obi-Wan Kenobi, whose premiere will air on Disney + in little over three weeks.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will be the third live-action series based on the same universe, following the successful The Mandalorian and the less successful The Boba Fett book, and it is presented with high expectations, not only because of the popularity of the character that stars in the story, but also, and especially in this role, because of the charisma of the actor who plays him.

Ewan McGregor dresses up as a Jedi once more to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the second Star Wars trilogy, which he played more than two decades ago. His influence on The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith in Star Wars Episodes I, II, and II are not to be overlooked.

In other words, exactly the opposite of what happened with Temuera Morrison's The Book of Boba Fett, who, like McGregor, effectively replaced the actor who played him in the first installment of the second Star Wars trilogy, while Temuera did not.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will have six chapters and will debut on Disney+ on May 27. Meanwhile, you might suppose that on the platform, you will have access to all of the movies if you so desire. We'll leave you with the series' trailers, but beware of the last one because Obi-Wan isn't the only notable character in the franchisee who will make an appearance.
