Obi-Wan Kenobi was created for the streaming service Disney+. It is part of the Star Wars franchise and stars Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi reprising his role from the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
Set ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005), the series follows Kenobi as he sets out to rescue the kidnapped Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) from the Galactic Empire, leading to a confrontation with his former apprentice, Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen).
I enjoyed watching Ewan McGregor. Drew noted that he and Carmen were saying how they left the last episode feeling a little underwhelmed because the stakes are so low when you know that everyone is going to survive. It was fortuitous that we watched Revenge of the Sith right before the miniseries started. It will be interesting to see if they do a second season.
