WASHINGTON – Lucasfilm’s long-awaited limited series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” is coming exclusive on Disney + on May 25th.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed the series’ premiere date on Wednesday during the company’s quarterly earnings call.

Disney has said the series is set a decade after “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” but hasn’t released many plot details other than a A behind-the-scenes look at the show released in November as part of Disney + Day.

“There’s a longing for this character to return. Fans have waited long enough,” McGregor said in the November preview.

Director Deborah Chow added, “This is a pretty dark time we’re going through with him. Just being a Jedi, it won’t be safe.”

“At least he has this one duty left: keep Luke safe,” McGregor continued.

“That’s definitely where our story begins. What’s interesting is where it starts,” said Chow, who is also the series’ executive producer.

Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of Lucasfilm and this ABC station.
