People Editorial Guidelines Published on May 4, 2022 10:27 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Star Wars fans got a new look at the upcoming series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, on Wednesday, in honor of Star Wars Day: May the 4th. The first official trailer for the Disney+ show premiering later this month showed much more of Ewan McGregor, who is reprising the titular role of the legendary Jedi after 17 years. A teaser for Obi-Wan Kenobi was previously released in early March. In the dramatic first look, viewers get a glimpse at the Empire's hunt for the last remaining individuals practicing the Force. Obi-Wan is among those being hunted. "They're coming," Obi-Wan warns. "Stay hidden or we will not survive." Ewan McGregor Says Returning to Star Wars as Obi-Wan Kenobi 'Has Been Absolutely Brilliant' One person searching for Obi-Wan says they may be "looking in the wrong places" for him. "I want every low life and bounty hunter to squeeze him," another person notes. The trailer also provides a glimpse at the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader, played by Hayden Christensen. At one point, someone warns Obi-Wan that he "can't escape him." McGregor, 51, last portrayed Kenobi in 2005, in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. The new series will take place 10 years after Revenge of the Sith. The Scottish actor played the character of Obi-Wan in all three of George Lucas' Star Wars prequel films, taking over the role from Alec Guinness, who played an older version of Kenobi in the original trilogy: 1977's Star Wars, 1980's The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi in 1983. The new series is also welcoming back Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the prequel films.
