Star Wars fans were given a special treat on May 4th, Star Wars Day: the trailer for the much-anticipated, Obi-Wan Kenobi. The limited series from Lucasfilm launches exclusively on Disney+ May 27.
I'm personally excited for the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. The prequel films didn't do him justice and we KNOW he can act.
According to the official description:
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. The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
