It’s hard to believe, but for roughly 45 years, audiences across the globe have experienced what it was like a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Since the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, generations of Jedis, Sith lords, and more have wielded the power of the force and explored the dark side. George Lucas’ original trilogy, which made (Hollywood) stars out of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and the late Carrie Fisher, left an indelible impact on the sci-fi genre, and created an entire world in which audiences could immerse themselves.
Decades have gone by since that original trilogy, which spawned a prequel trilogy, sequel trilogy, and countless one-off films and TV series. Now, fans of every generation can venture to the farthest reach of the galaxy and go on new adventures with the likes of Grogu from The Mandalorian, BB8, and more beloved characters. But a new chapter in the Star Wars saga is about to unfold.
After more than 15 years, Ewan McGregor is taking up his lightsaber once again to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Disney+ series. The eponymous TV show, bearing the same name as the character originated by Oscar winner Alec Guinness, will follow Obi-Wan as he watches over a young Luke Skywalker and hides away from threats on the desert planet Tatooine.
We can hardly wait to see what’s in store for the beloved character in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Though we know how the story ends, we’re nevertheless ready to board our spaceships and journey past the stars and celestial pathways back into the Star Wars universe.
