Obi-Wan Kenobi picks up exactly 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith which famously saw our protagonist suffer a brutal defeat to his arch nemesis Darth Vader. The Sith Lord successfully corrupted Obi-Wan’s apprentice and close confidante, Anakin Skywalker, luring him to betray Obi-Wan and turn to the dark side.

Other original prequel stars poised to return are Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, whilst the series also welcomes a host of familiar faces to the franchise including Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Rupert Friend (Homeland), and Sung Kang (Fast & Furious). 


Deborah Chow returns to direct the series, having previously directed two episodes of the revered The Mandalorian series in 2019.
