OBI-WAN KENOBI Clip Sees "Ben" Kenobi Involved In A Tense Confrontation...With Luke Skywalker's Uncle Owen
The first clip from Obi-Wan Kenobi has been released, and it features "Ben" Kenobi on Tatooine having a major disagreement with Owen Lars about what the future should hold in store for Luke Skywalker...
Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are doing the rounds to promote Obi-Wan Kenobi ahead of its Disney+ premiere less than a week from today, and we now have the first clip from the show.
Despite the fact we've already seen a fair bit of footage from the show, it's quite surreal seeing McGregor play this character again. He hasn't lost a beat, though, and the exchange that follows between "Ben" Kenobi and Owen Lars says a lot about both men and their hopes for Luke Skywalker.
Clearly, Owen has no interest in Obi-Wan putting his nephew at risk, while the Jedi Master appears intent on fulfilling his promise to train the boy as he once trained his father, Anakin Skywalker.
Take a look at this first Obi-Wan Kenobi clip (via SFFGazette.com) in the player below:
Obi-Wan Kenobi's story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where the hero 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 (we're hoping to also see him as Anakin Skywalker).
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. Deborah Chow directed all six episodes of the show which premieres on May 27 with its first two episodes and wraps up on June 22.
