Well hello there Rebelscum! Lucasfilm has unveiled the first trailer for the new Disney+ streaming series, Obi-Wan Kenobi. The trailer's description is as follows:
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.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold
1. Luke Skywalker! Obi-Wan has kept his promise to look after the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. From a distance, Kenobi uses his macrobinoculars to watch a young Luke playing at the Lars homestead in a story set about halfway between the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.
2. The Grand Inquisitor arrives. The Grand Inquisitor, member of the Jedi hunters first glimpsed in Star Wars Rebels, is set to make his live-action debut played by Rupert Friend, with Sung Kang debuting the role of Fifth Brother from the series. Heralded by “Duel of the Fates,” the composition that first accompanied the loss of Kenobi’s master in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, the trailer shows the menacing Grand Inquisitor’s ship arriving at Fortress Inquisitorius. And he’s not alone.
3. A new Inquisitor: Reva. Played by Moses Ingram, the trailer provides our first look at the Third Sister, including the terrifying moment when she interrogates Luke’s Uncle Owen and another where she races across a rooftop with her red lightsaber ignited. We’ve only just met her, but from these brief glimpses Reva is a formidable presence.
4. Welcome to Daiyu. Although many of the scenes appear to be on the familiar sands of Tatooine, we also get our first look at the new world of Daiyu, expanding the galaxy that we love.
5. The Grand Inquisitor’s unique spinning lightsaber! In recent years, we’ve seen the Darksaber and Ahsoka Tano’s dual white lightsabers make the leap into live-action storytelling. Now, the circular tool of the demonic-looking Grand Inquisitor joins the arsenal.
