Obi-Wan Kenobi is an American miniseries on Disney+. The series was released on 27 May 2022. It is part of the Star Wars franchise. The series starts about 10 years after what transpired in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005). It was supposed to be a spin-off movie. But it got made into a series after the failure of Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018). The production of the series started way earlier in 2019, because of a few hold-ups and rewrites, etc.
Two episodes of the show are out already and the next four episodes will premiere until June 22. Even though there weren’t any critics’ reviews until it was officially released. But the response to the series by both audience and critics has been positive so far. The series is the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan and Hayden Christiansen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader and an understanding of their pasts, presents, and futures.
When And Where Will It Come Out?
Episode 3 of Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released on Friday, June 1, 2022, at 3 AM Eastern time, 12:30 PM, Indian Standard Time, 12:30 AM, Pacific Time, and 7:00 AM, Greenwich Mean Time. The show can be streamed on Disney+ much like every other Star War content.
Obi-Wan Kenobi Plot
The series starts 10 years after the Jedi order is killed, Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, and Third Sister find the surviving Jedi, Nari. Nari seeks another surviving Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi but Kenobi refuses and later finds Nari’s corpse. Kenobi also lives in Tatooine, works in some meat factory under the alias “Ben” and looks over Luke Skywalker, son of Anakin Skywalker. He used to be his apprentice and is now turned, enemy. Kenobi is dealing with his own is while not being able to communicate with his former master Qui-Gon Jinn through the Force. The third sister, Reva, is hell-bent on finding Kenobi and makes several attempts in no vain.
Kenobi looks for Leia and finally finds her but with Reva and Grand Inquisitor on their heels. They face challenges one after the other. Reva finally finds them and tells them that Anakin a.k.a Darth Vader still lives which is a shock to Kenobi who thought Vader died ten years ago. As the Grand Inquisitor tries to arrest them, Reva attacks the Inquisitor with a lightsaber, letting Kenobi and Leia escape.
Episode 3 Plot Speculation
Episode 3 would most probably show the duo, Kenobi, and Leia trying Haja Elstree’s (Kumail Nanjiani) ship back to Alderaan. And that Reva might go after them. It is a possibility that she might involve Darth Vader. As we got a peak of Vader at the end of episode 2, he would define making appearances in the series. Grand Inquisitor would also make an appearance and we will see how he reacts to what happened at the end of episode 2. These would be some exciting episodes that are to follow.
