One can say one thing about Star Wars fans. That is being, they, are they the most patient fans in the world. The Star Wars community has been gifted the best of it ever since Disney+ became a thing. The Mandalorian, The Bad Batch, Visions, and The Book Of Boba Fett have all made their way through different aspects of the lore. Exploring different genres on the Star Wars medium has made it exciting for fans to stay put over the franchise. After what happened to the Skywalker Saga, fans needed this fresh perspective on the franchise. Now, one more legend makes their way to the screens; Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The Kenobi Show is the fans and Lucasfilm’s prized possession. The series encapsulates a Star Wars legend whose journey has been incomplete. The fans felt it to be very abrupt for such a character to not be a standalone hero of its own. Now, 17 years later, the world is ready to witness the return of this legend. The hero who now walks exiled across the sands of the Tatooine, will claim the hearts of the fans once more. Obi-Wan returns to the fans after a long period and the fans are ready to chew onto anything they get from this show.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Promotions Shifts Into Gear


Earlier last month, fans across the world experienced the first promo from the series. A poster of Obi-Wan Kenobi walking through Tatooine with the Lightsaber of Anakin raised some debates. After Anakin was defeated by Kenobi on Mustafar, Kenobi went away to seek solace ftom the wrath that would follow up soon. It’s for this reason, he abandoned the Skywalker kids, too. Obi-Wan Kenobi fans only got to experience this gorgeous poster along with a release date on May 25th. Coincidentally, commemorating the day on which the first Star Wars movie was released in theatres. So, the series is a homage to George Lucas’ journey with his characters.

Now, a new rumor has sparked a sense of relief among fans. Be it so, the first trailer or teaser for the series may be apparently really soon. According to MakingStarWars, a Youtube channel that is dedicated to making Star Wars news and rumors. They have rumored that the trailer for the show will release either on Wednesday, March 9th or on Thursday, March 10th. MSW were very confident of the rumor solely based off of images that were leaked. They felt these images were too good to be true and were evidently close. Thus, they felt the need to address this on their channel.

“We had a source, a new source, a source I’m not familiar with… that’s why we’re putting this as a rumor and we’re trying to be very clear about this being a rumor, but they showed evidence from a Kenobi trailer. We have seen evidence that these are shots from the Kenobi trailer and, uh, nothing amazing, but the new costume, things you really realistically could not just go out and fake. And this person claims that the trailer will drop on the 9th… That’s one week from today. If we remember we had heard another rumor before that it was coming on the 10th. This other person comes with pictures going ‘It’s on the 9th.’”

Could The Rumors Be True?

Obi-Wan Kenobi could be making huge social media buzz if these rumors are believed to be true. The show has laready made a huge buzz over its cast and all other things that make up to what’s coming. Now, with the poster, the show can readily lay than rush for the trailer due to the already ready hype. Avengers Endgame too, did extend its usual time period; over the release of the trailer due to the fan excitement that was generated for Infinity War alone.  Thus, it is fair for Lucasfilm and Disney to keep the trailer as hot as it gets to please fans for the return of the beloved Kenobi.

If the trailer were to premiere as per the rumored dates, it would be set to be the most appropriate time to release it. The Book Of Boba Fett had been completed a month back and there was enough time to generate the necessary buzz to announce the show. Disney has been releasing trailers for their shows, usually a month too close to the series launch. That could be said for the same here as well. The anticipation is what Disney is trying to see before they release their trailers to the public.

The show is said to have a strong cast led by Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hayden Christensen return to reprise the role of Darth Vader. He may be deaged in the show to fit the timeline. Kumail Nanjiani will play a new character in the Star Wars show. With the plot loosely being to protect and capture the young princess Leia, Shea Jackson Jr. may play that character, too. Deborah Chow is said to have directed the show.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will hit Disney+ on May 25th 2022.
