Since the teaser trailer for the Obi-Wan series was dropped on Youtube earlier this month, Star Wars fans have been posting their excitement all over the internet about the return of the iconic Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Fans are also genuinely excited that Ewan McGregor will be reprising his role as Obi-Wan years after the end of the Star Wars Prequels. The teaser trailer revealed the Disney Plus Obi-Wan Kenobi series release date would be Wednesday, May 25th.
