‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Disney+ Premiere Moves Back 2 Days & Gets Double Episode Launch

Looks like Star Wars fans will have to wait just a little longer to catch Ewan McGregor’s return as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The series was originally announced to premiere on Disney+ on 25th May, which happens to be the 45th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope. But it has now been pushed back by two days to 27 May instead, as announced by Ewan McGregor below. But the good news is, we will now get not one but the first two episodes of the series dropped on Disney+ on the same day.

This also means Obi-Wan Kenobi will go head-to-head with Netflix’s highly anticipated Stranger Things Season 4, which is also releasing Part 1 of its latest on the exact same day. Fun!
