Fans have been geeking out over the Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer as it puts a date to the much-awaited Star Wars limited series.
The new Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer finally dropped and has left the fans shouting ‘Holy Sith!’ The much-awaited prequel of the Star Wars universe is something that every fan had been looking forward to ever since it was announced. And now that the trailer is out, they got a glimpse of everything that will happen in the show.
A prequel, the series is focused on the time when the Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi was in exile after the fall of the Jedi Order as depicted in 2005’s “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.” The Jedi master will keep a watchful eye on young Luke Skywalker on the desert planet of Tatooine while evading Jedi hunters. The teaser trailer of the Disney Plus original which will be a six-episode live-action series reveals parts of his sci-fi adventures that every geek will recognise. While we get to see Ewan McGregor reprise his iconic role, we also get to see other characters that everyone was waiting to see onscreen.

The trailer gave small easter eggs on how the showrunners plan to take the story ahead. And the small glimpses of other characters have definitely caught the fans’ eyes. A young Luke playing at the Lars homestead, the appearance of the member of Jedi Hunters – The Grand Inquisitor (Rupert Friend) and his unique lightsaber, first look at the new world of Daiyu, young Uncle Owen (Joel Edgerton) and a lot more. Although Hayden Christensen doesn’t actually appear in the trailer, we know he’s coming.
Apart from all these characters and places, there were also musical references that caught everyone’s attention. The show is set to release on May 25 which also happens to be the 45th anniversary of the original “Star Wars” released back in 1977.
