Disney officially has announced the setting and the loose story of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi announced. Only in March was the first trailer for the series around the popular Jedi master, which is once again embodied by Ewan McGregor . The series is expected with tension, especially after the success of the Disney Plus series “ The Mandalorian “.
What is the story of Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi?
“While the rule of the Galactic Empire, the former Jedi champion Obi-Wan Kenobi goes on a significant mission. Kenobi has to face former ally, which became enemies and faces of horror of the Empire_.” This little synopsis on Disney Plus is quite daily, but it offers a lot of interpretation space. For example, the question arises that exactly Obi-Wan is actually encountered in the series when speaking of “former allies”.
The confrontation with former allies primarily indicates an encounter with Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader. This has betrayed Kenobi in the third episode of the ninodical “Skywalker-saga” together with the Republic and finally became Vader. Also we have already talked about the speculation of a possible duel of the two in the series.
Another figure, which may be meant, is the Grand Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels, who will be seen for the first time in a live action series. This too has a past as guardian of the Jedi temple before the events of the “Order 66”. The question of which well-known or unknown fellow Obi-Wan will be encountered remains open.
Are new characters come?
It would not be unusual for the franchise to establish new characters in the Star Wars Universe retrospectively. Ahsoka from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series is one of the most prominent examples. However, the series was far from the acquisition of the brand by Disney.
The series starts from the 25. May 2022 on Disney Plus and should last six consequences. Whether the series can build on the success and the constant “hype” by the Mandalorian, or into the more than controversial prequel films, remains to be seen first. But the anticipation and tension on the series is successfully fueled by Disney in any case.
