This morning brings our first look at Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return, a documentary special launching on Disney+ Day next month!
If you’ve been hankering for a deeper behind the scenes look at the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, you’ll get the chance pretty soon. This morning, Disney announced a handful of Disney+ Day premieres, which included Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return.
This looks incredible. While I had some issues with the series in certain technical aspects, I’m very eager to see more footage of Ewan and Hayden working together once more on a Star Wars set. That, and I’m always down to hear Deborah Chow talk about her storytelling process.
With never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes footage, colorful personal stories and meaningful moments, “Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return” showcases the making of Lucasfilm’s original limited series for Disney+, “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” an epic story that begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.” This insightful documentary from Lucasfilm and Supper Club explores the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to the screen—and Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to their respective classic roles. Director Deborah Chow, cast and crew reflect on their journey to tell a new story with iconic Star Wars characters Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader and Princess Leia, while introducing new heroes and villains into the saga along the way. Complete with visits to the creature shop, props department and more, “Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return” features the side of filmmaking that makes Star Wars so unique—the respect and passion for the generation-spanning legacy and the beloved characters.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return hits Disney+ on September 8, 2022.
