OBI-WAN KENOBI Comic Book Series Coming This May...Just In Time For The Jedi's Disney+ TV Series!

Obi-Wan Kenobi is expected to arrive on Disney+ this May, and Marvel Comics has now announced plans for Star Wars: Obi-Wan, a miniseries exploring the iconic Jedi's past. Find more details after the jump!

StarWars.com has announced plans for Marvel Comics to launch Star Wars: Obi-Wan, a new five-issue miniseries written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Ario Anindito coming this May.

Arriving just in time for the release of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+, it's said this comic book will find the iconic Jedi in the final days of his time living as a hermit on Tatooine. However, it will actually chronicle some of his early adventures taken from the journals he kept while on the planet. This means we will follow him as a Padawan, during the Clone Wars, and his time as a Jedi Master.

We'll even learn more about Obi-Wan's life prior to his training under Master Qui-Gon Jinn, and Cantwell opened up to the site on what he enjoyed most about exploring the Jedi's storied history.

"Writing Yoda was surreal. Getting that speech pattern right isn’t as easy as it sounds. And I’ve always loved Qui-Gon. He’s my favorite part of the prequels and such a fascinating character. Anakin proved trickier, because he’s as multifaceted as a diamond." he admitted. "But it’s been a joy touching upon them all, and also playing with some beloved alien species and even creating a couple new characters that I think integrate well into the larger universe."

Star Wars Day, May The Fourth, falls on a Wednesday this year, so the expectation is that's when Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on Disney+. Between that and this comic, it's going to be an exciting time for fans of this character and we're sure Lucasfilm probably has more surprises planned.
