‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Star Wars spinoff series premieres May 25 on Disney Plus

Robust quarterly financials and greater-than-anticipated streaming subscribers weren’t the only major highlights of Disney’s earnings report and follow-up call on Wednesday (Feb. 9), as new details about the eagerly awaited live-action “Obi-Wan Kenobi” spinoff series on Disney Plus were revealed.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek unveiled official news that the premiere date of May 25 is penciled in for the original show chronicling the Jedi master’s years in exile on Tatooine watching over Luke Skywalker and hiding out from Jedi hunters, 10 years after the events depicted in 2005’s “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.”
