When is the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show trailer coming out?

Disney Plus Day will also offer the first look at the Star Wars TV show centred around Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The show will bring back Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen from the Star Wars prequels to once again reprise their roles as Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

Little it yet known about the show, which is set to release some time in 2022 and first announced in August 2019.

However, filming is already underway for the latest addition to the Star Wars franchise.

The series will take place between Episode III and Episode IV, placing it squarely between the prequels and the original trilogy.

It’s thought that the show will focus on Obi-Wan grappling with the destruction of the Jedi Order and the rise of the Empire.

"It will be interesting to take a character we know in a way and show him – well, his arc will be quite interesting, I think, dealing with the fact that all the Jedi were slaughtered with the end of Episode III,” said Mr McGregor in an interview. “It's quite something to get over."
