Star Wars Day: the second trailer of the series “Obi Wan”

Released on — when else? – May the Fourth trailer teases appearances of a young Luke Skywalker, lightsaber-wielding villains, and, of course, a certain Sith known for his labored breathing.

Billed as a “six-part event,” the limited series follows Ewan McGregor’s legendary Jedi after his apprentice Anakin Skywalker goes to the dark side in “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.”

Years after Emperor Palpatine rose to power and “ordained 66” to most Jedi, Obi-Wan still can’t catch a break: he’s escaping the evil inquisitors who intend to hunt him down. as one of the last living Jedi in the galaxy and to keep a watchful eye on a young Luke Skywalker, simply living on his Uncle Owen’s humidity farm on Tatooine.

The trailer ends with the instantly recognizable breaths of a Darth Vader who, in the “Star Wars” timeline, only recently became a Sith. Will the old master and the apprentice confront each other? It’s likely – Hayden Christensen is reprising his role as the badly burned Anakin/Vader on the show.
Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, Moses Ingram and Rupert Friend, among many others, also star. Who will end up voicing a comic droid? How will the villains of Ingram and Friend compare to Vader? And who can say, “I have a bad feeling about this?”

Hopefully these questions and more will be answered when “Obi-Wan Kenobi” premieres May 27 on Disney+.
