How to watch Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen in 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' online and on TV now.
It’s been almost three years since Star Wars fans have gotten to see a new chapter of the franchise in theaters. But hope survives in the form of Disney’s expanding collection of Star Wars shows — including the latest miniseries, Obi-Wan Kenobi, which arrives on Disney+ today.
Ewan McGregor reprises his beloved role as Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen returns as Anakin-turned-Vader for the first time since the 2005 film, Revenge of the Sith, in this new limited series. Christensen’s epic comeback to the world of Star Wars comes amid rumors that he’ll be making an appearance in Ahsoka — another forthcoming Star Wars spinoff series. Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres on Friday, May 27 exclusively on Disney+.
The show picks up 10 years after Obi-Wan’s apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Judging by the trailer, the Jedi Master is still dealing with the fallout from his dear friend’s betrayal, while keeping a distant but watchful eye on young Luke Skywalker.
Whether you’re a diehard Star Wars fan, or just here for the reunion of McGregor and Christensen, here’s how to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi.
