Rumored Trailer for This Week and ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ decided to kick off the countdown to May 25 by posting a first look with Ewan McGregor. The absolute protagonist of this next galactic series, argues that we find Obi-Wan at the beginning of this story “quite broken, unfaithful, beaten And having given up somehow. Hayden Christensen also returns with him, carefully absent from the first images collected by Weekly entertainmentNorth American publication responsible for launching the photo battery.

Instead, we are introduced to Moses Ingram as the Inquisitor Reva, Force-sensitive character dedicated to hunting Jedi trying to hide from the Empire. Director Deborah Chow and screenwriter Joby Harold describe the character as a ruthlessly ambitious villain who will become a formidable new enemy. According to Ingram, your character shares “a common goal” with the Grand Inquisitor and Darth VaderDark Side props he teams up with.

And hiding from these very bad guys who want to finish all the Jedi, we would have a young Luke who takes refuge in the dunes of Tatooine, an incognito Skywalker under protection, not just the teacher who gives the series its name, but Uncle Owen. Joel Edgerton is back to play that character, something Chow can’t hide his enthusiasm for. “Thank you, George. [Lucas], for casting Joel Edgerton as Uncle Owen. That’s all I can say”comments this filmmaker between two laughs.

The returns of the two characters who were introduced in the prequels and the beloved planets of our favorite distant galaxy stand out, but also the presentations of new inhabitants of this universe and corners to explore. Harold talks about a new planet: Daiyu, which “looks like Hong Kong and a nightlife full of graffiti, with a different twist and feel,” without giving further details.
