Star Wars fans have been asking for a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie – or TV show – ever since the sequel trilogy ended in 2005. While the role was originally played by Alec Guinness in the original trilogy, actor Ewan McGregor managed to inject a lot of charm into the younger, less experienced Kenobi. We all wanted to see what Obi-Wan was up to during the time period between the original and sequel trilogy. There have been rumors for years that an Obi-Wan project was in the works, but it would take until Disney bought the rights to Star Wars for this to become a reality. The release date and time for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series are looming ahead, and we are going to tell you when each episode is going to come out, starting with Episode 1.

Is There Going to be an Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2?
Since this is a mini-series that is set to tell a story that can’t deviate from established canon, a second season is unlikely. However, if the show does well enough, we may yet see a continuation of Obi-Wan’s story in some form. If you were wondering when and where the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is going to take place, we have a separate guide that answers those questions.
