Obi-Wan Kenobi’s standalone present, anticipated to launch on Could twenty fifth on Disney+ nonetheless doesn’t have a full trailer. That is, as we are able to all agree, a travesty. However earlier in the present day after a cheeky “Hey there” on the official twitter account for the collection, EW launched an unique collection of images and an interview with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s star, Ewan McGregor.

The images additionally present Moses Ingram as Reva, one of many Drive-sensitive Inquisitors looking down the final of the Jedi after the rise of the Empire. From EW, “Director Deborah Chow and author Joby Harold describe the character as ruthlessly bold.”

Kenobi appears to be in tough form within the images, hiding out on Tatooine (will Star Wars ever tire of this horrible, sandy planet?) as a way to watch over Luke Skywalker on his uncle’s moisture farm. We get a glimpse of his cave the place (apparently) he lives for the subsequent 20-odd years. In fact, it’s far much less homey than his eventual homestead is in A New Hope, and I personally love the thought of a really emotional and tremendous depressed Jedi deciding that he’s simply going to hang around in a cave and pout till his ward comes of age.

There appears to be a whole lot of Tatooine based mostly on these images, as Inquisitor Reva faces down Uncle Owen (performed by Assault of the Clones’ Joel Edgerton), and makes her means by a crowded market. Additionally current is Obi-Wan with an oepie, which some may acknowledge as a reference to Rooh, an oepie that Obi-Wan rode within the 2013 Legends novel, Kenobi.

Ultimately although, there may be an escape off Tatooine! The unique has Kenobi in a basic Jedi getup on the brand new planet, Daiyu, which Harold describes as a extra vibrant scene than what we’ve seen to this point. “It’s obtained a graffiti-ridden nightlife, and is sort of edgy. It’s simply obtained a unique lane and a unique feeling.”

We’re nonetheless ready for a glimpse at Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, however good bets are on the complete trailer for that first look—little question we’ll study rather more about Obi-Wan Kenobi earlier than its finally arrival on Could 25.
