It looks like we’ll have a few more days to wait for Obi-Wan Kenobi to debut. Thankfully, it’s only being moved back two days from May 25 to Friday, May 27.
There has been no word as to the reasoning behind the slight date change. Perhaps Disney wanted the series to premiere during the upcoming Star Wars Celebration convention. But there is certainly a silver lining to this news. Disney+ has also announced that on May 27th we’ll be getting the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi. That will certainly soften the blow of having to wait a few extra days. You can check out the official news below from Ewan McGregor himself.

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT ‘OBI-WAN KENOBI’
Obi-Wan Kenobi, the new Disney+ limited series from Lucasfilm, will debut exclusively on Disney+ on May 27. The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master.
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.
