As the Jedi Master continues to hide from those who want to capture him, he will be forced to use weapons Not lightsabers, including a smaller version of the blaster he previously called “too uncivilized” in 2005 Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Ewan McGregor in Obi-Wan KenobiThe six-episode limited series takes place 10 years after the events by Revenge of the Sith, with Obi-Wan still wracked with guilt for losing his former apprentice Anakin Skywalker to the dark side. Hayden Christensen will reprise the role of Anakin/Darth Vader, setting the stage for a reunion between Obi-Wan and his ex, long prior to their last meeting in A new hope.

“Bringing Vader Back [is] Obviously it’s something that you don’t want to take lightly, and you don’t want to do it just for the sake of it,” explains director Deborah Chow. “When we started to really look at Obi-Wan’s life and say, ‘Who’s important in his life? What has influenced him in his past? ‘ so much of that connects back to Anakin that it feels very organic that it’s going to be part of this series from where we step out in history. ”

McGregor said, “It’s very important that we have [it] in accordance with the law of Star Wars, that we don’t make any mistakes, but that we tell a story that is our own story. I think there are some themes that we have seen between Revenge of the Sith and A new hope That will make fans happy to watch and acknowledge. ”

Fans may also recognize Grand Inquisitor (played in the live-action series of Countrysideby Rupert Friend) and Brother Fifth (Sung Kang) from Star Wars: Clone Wars. In the animated series, Grand Inquisitor displays impressive lightsaber skills such as swinging his weapon like a helicopter and practically flying with it. So we will see those same skills displayed in Obi-Wan Kenobi?

“All I can say is that it was a lot easier to shoot those lights in animation than in live action,” Chow notes. “You saw in the trailer that we obviously shot it, but we definitely tried to stay true to the spirit of the Heretics.”

The show will also introduce a new Inquisitor named Reva, do Queen’s Gambitby Moses Ingram.

“[The Inquisitors are] a group of people, but they all have their own way of doing things,” she shared. “Things about [Reva] is that she doesn’t care what people think about the way she does it. She plays offensively and she wants to be first, and she’s just passionate about what she does. “
