Star Wars fans will have to wait just a bit longer to see Ewan McGregor back in action as “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.
The upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series is pushing back its premiere from Wednesday, May 25, to Friday, May 27, McGregor announced in a video on Thursday. However, the first two episodes of the limited series will drop on Disney Plus that day.
Since Marvel Studios’ “Loki” series last year, Disney Plus has stuck with Wednesdays to launch its major TV series, like Marvel’s “Hawkeye” and Star Wars’ “The Book of Boba Fett.” Before that, “The Mandalorian,” “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” released weekly episodes on Fridays.
McGregor’s announcement only included the first two episodes of “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” so the remaining four episodes may stick with releasing on Wednesdays. That would partially overlap the series with Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel,” which debuts on Wednesday, June 8 — marking the first time Disney Plus has simultaneously dropped a Marvel and “Star Wars” series, two of its biggest brands.
