A new regime has arisen. Darth Sidious unveiled his plan and the Jedi Order succumbed. Ten years after Revenge of the Sith, the Emperor is at the height of his power. This is the time when the story of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new Disney+ original miniseries, takes place. A few days after its premiere, the official account shared a new poster illustrated by artist Chelsea Lowe.
Master Obi-Wan Kenobi is the protagonist of the illustration. It appears in the foreground with the two suns of Tatooine in the background and a sandy texture that recreates the desert terrain of the planet. On the side are the villains, the Grand Inquisitor and two other members of the Inquisitor Order, the Third Sister Reva and the Fifth Brother. The main antagonist is missing, the evil Lord Darth Vader, whom Kenobi will have to face again.
a life in exile
Things quickly came to a head when Palpatine issued Order 66 and ordered the clones to kill all Jedi. The Council was beheaded, although Yoda and Obi-Wan managed to escape in extremis. Anakin Skywalker, the former Padawan of Kenobi, was devoured by Darth Vader. A decade later, hatred still guides their actions, and the hunt for surviving Jedi has become personal.
The duel on Mustafar left Vader burned and near death, but he was saved by Palpatine at the last moment. The moment the armor was placed on him, he was told of Padmé’s fate, words manipulated by Darth Sidious to fuel his overflowing rage. Obi-Wan thought he had abandoned and killed his apprentice, so the guilt gnawed at him. He doesn’t know that he survived and became the Emperor’s right-hand man. How will this whole plot unfold? We will discover it from May 27 on Disney +.
We offer these recommendations ahead of the series premieres. It has also been confirmed when each episode will debut.
