Disney+ Releases First Trailer For Obi-Wan Kenobi

Star Wars fans, hold on to your lightsabers. A new trailer for the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi has just dropped. You can watch it below:

The release of the trailer comes after the creators revealed the first official poster for Obi-Wan Kenobi last month, and it seems Disney has no plans to slow down on the teasers as they've since shared the first episodic images and, now, the trailer.

The Obi-Wan series sees the return of Ewan McGregor as the wise Jedi master after 17 years, with his last appearance coming in 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Naturally, McGregor's return to the character after so long has sparked a lot of excitement among fans, but unfortunately we'll have to wait for the show's release on May 25 to find out everything he gets up to.

Until then, we only have snippets such as the trailer and the teasers shared by those involved in the production, with McGregor telling Entertainment Weekly, "We find Obi-Wan at the beginning of our story rather broken, and faithless, and beaten, somewhat given up."

The series is set to introduce a new Inquisitor to the Star Wars universe; a character named Reva, who is played by Moses Ingram of The Queen’s Gambit. Reva is set to form part of a villainous trio made up of the Grand Inquisitor and Darth Vader, as Ingram explained, the three "share a common dark-side goal".

She continued: "They're on the same team."

McGregor appears to have enjoyed returning to the role as much as fans will no doubt enjoy seeing him in it, though he admitted it was strange to look back on the evolution of Star Wars after having been involved since its early days.

In an interview with Forbes, the actor said he 'loved playing [Kenobi] again', adding: "I mean it’s quite interesting, after the experience of making the first three films and living through sort of their reception in the world, which wasn’t always glowing, I have to say.

"And then now, meeting the generation who we made those films for, the children then – and now, people in their late teens or early twenties, those people who were kids who we made those films for, they loved them. To them, they’re their Star Wars films, you know? For us, it was the original films of the ‘70s, but for them, it was our films were their Star Wars. So to step back into his shoes again now and do a series, a whole series about Obi-Wan Kenobi for those fans, it just makes me really happy.”

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to be released on Disney+ on May 25
