Disney had to have something planned for May the 4th, right? We were expecting the reveal of an entirely new Star Wars thing, but instead we got another trailer for a show we know is coming and will be here by the end of the month. The show is called Obi-Wan Kenobi, and you can guess what it’s about.
It’s the midpoint between 2005 and 1977. Palpatine and Vader rule the galaxy. Being a Jedi is a death sentence, and nobody dares perform lightsaber tricks in public — unless they’re a Sith, who also get lightsabers (pretty red ones!) Ben Kenobi, the focus of our story, hides out on Tattooine while the Empire searches constellation after constellation for him. It’s a futile effort because canonically, Vader can never figure out he’s on Tattooine — but evidently Ben steps off his hiding planet at some point because this trailer highly suggests he and his former apprentice have a little meeting.
