Rarely a Star Wars series will have been so talked about before its release as Obi-Wan Kenobi. And for good reason: if it is an original story, this mini-series brings back several actors in the prelogy. This state of affairs asks many questions about the potential return of other characters.


The series _ Obi-Wan Kenobi_ will arrive on May 27 , in the middle of the Star Wars Celebration, which will take place in Anaheim from May 26 to 29. The opportunity to highlight the series, and to encourage Disney+ subscribers to take a look at the announcements.

Obi-Wan: a highly anticipated return

As announced, Obi Wan Kenobi will allow Ewan McGregor to become the Jedi Knight , for an adventure for a few years after the end of episode III . The Jedi were decimated, and Obi Wan took Luke, just born, to his family on Tatooine.

Knowing the power of force in this family for having been the mentor of Anakin Skywalker before he became Dark Vader, he decided to stay hidden on the planet to watch over the offspring of his former Padawan.

Surprises and cameos that make fans dream

But Vader is not very far, since we will find him in the guise of Hayden Christensen . Joel Edgerton will also resume his role as Owen Lars, then the fans wonder if other characters could not appear or at least be mentioned.

A question whose legitimacy has been reinforced by the statements of Rupert Friend , which embodies the great inquisitor. He indicated that one could expect a lot of surprises and cameos. Among the most insistent rumors, there is one that evokes the case of Dark Maul .

The director of the calm series everyone

Murder of Qui-Gon Jinn, the master of Obi-Wan, Maul was cut in two by the latter, before reappearing in star Wars the Clone Wars and Rebels. Dark Maul and Obi-Wan are therefore closely linked, and the idea of seeing him did not seem better. Unfortunately, it is obviously necessary to make a cross on this hope , since he was completely denied by Deborah Chow, the director of the series, in the columns of The Hollywood Reporter.

Since I was involved, we have never had Dark Maul in mind. Dave Filoni has already done a great job by telling this story.

This has the merit of being clear, even if some people can be disappointed. As a reminder, the Obi-Wan series was expected on May 25, but was postponed to correspond to the dates of the Star Wars Celebration. In compensation, on May 27, we will not have the right to one but two episodes **. Then they will arrive at the rate of one episode per week the next four weeks.
