Obi-Wan Kenobi Release Time on Disney Plus

It's almost time to step back into the Star Wars universe.

May 26, 2022

After a long wait, we are finally close to experiencing the journey of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Disney Plus’ new mini-series. Starring Ewan McGregor, the new TV show will feature six episodes, and here’s the exact time it will premiere on the streaming service.

After The Book of Boba Fett, Disney is taking us back to the Star Wars universe with another mini-series. Obi-Wan Kenobi serves as a sequel to Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, as it takes place ten years after the events of the 2005 film.

Initially, Stephen Daldry wanted Obi-Wan Kenobi to be a spin-off film, but Solo: A Star Wars Story’s failure forced the studio to adapt it into a television series. Later, the show was put on hiatus by Lucasfilm because of an unsatisfactory script, so you could say the creators had their fair share of problems with the project.


Nevertheless, the community is now only a few hours away from finding out if Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi does justice to the iconic Star Wars character.
