Mickey Mouse’s company has taken a few years to get everything up and running, but the Star Wars television franchise is already in full swing.
He has just finished The Book of Boba Fett, with some spectacular last episodes that mix series and movies of the saga, and today we have learned that the new series Star Wars: Obi- wan Kenobi will premiere on May 25. There are fans who are asking for it to be May 4, Star Wars Day…
The new series will star Kenobi from the first film trilogy, Ewan McGregor , who returns almost 20 years later as a wiser and more mature Obi-Wan:
And he won’t return alone. T also returns Hayden Christensen , who played Anakin Skywalker in the aforementioned trilogy, and will now play a Darth Vader at his peak.
The series will take place 10 years after Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, with Obi-Wan hiding from the persecution of the last Jedi, while the Republic collapses at the hands of the Galactic Empire.
There is little more we can say, since Disney has not yet revealed any official photos or trailers, beyond the poster that you can see here.

There are other series, such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Droids or Ewoks, that Disney does not consider canon, and therefore they will not be mentioned in their new series.
And in the future?
After the announcement that Obi-wan Kenobi will premiere on May 25, there are no more Star Wars series rs announced for the remainder of 2022.
It is assumed thatthe second season of La Remesa Malawill be released in the middle of the year.
Rumors speak of up totwo series set in Alta Republic, at the height of the Jedi. One of them could star the Padawans, the Jedi apprentices, and would be aimed at a young audience.
Another crazier rumor says that a remake is underway of the original trilogy in series format, and with unpublished footage from the films.
We also have the Andor series, which would be a prequel to the film Rogue One, and how it will be based on the war missions of the rebels.
Will we see any of this in 2022? Surely Disney is cooking something big for next Christmas…
