New concept art cards for Obi-Wan Kenobi offer a closer look at stormtroopers and an Imperial ship that look straight out of the original Star Wars.
New concept art for Obi-Wan Kenobi gives an inside look at the series, including stormtroopers and imperial ships. After more than 15 years since playing Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Revenge of the SithEwan McGregor will reprise his role in Disney+’s upcoming limited series, Obi-Wan Kenobi† The series continues 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and the tragic evolution of Anakin into Darth Vader, finding Kenobi on Tatooine watching over a young Luke Skywalker.
A first trailer for the series, released a few weeks ago, gave viewers their first real look at McGregor’s older Obi-Wan Kenobi and teased new villains to contend with, as well as another showdown with Darth Vader. In addition to McGregor, Obi-Wan Kenobi sees the return of Anakin actor Hayden Christensen, Owen Lars actor Joel Edgerton and Beru Lars actor Bonnie Piesse. Newcomers to the Star Wars universe include Kumail Nanjiani, Rupert Friend, Maya Erskine, Benny Safdie, Sung Kang, and Moses Ingram among others.
Included as part of the last song of Total Film Magazine, new concept art cards show what awaits viewers when Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres later next month. There are a total of four art cards, two featuring Obi-Wan, one featuring what appears to be the transport ship seen in the teaser trailer, and another featuring two stormtroopers next to an Imperial ship. Checking out Total Movies tweet with the art cards below:
Although the first teaser trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi already showed a first look at the show’s stormtroopers, the art cards reinforce that the famous Imperial forces will play a major role in the series. Now that the Jedi has been essentially wiped out and the Empire has grown significantly stronger since then Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, it appears that Obi-Wan will face significant threats from stormtroopers and elite Jedi fighters. With the series set relatively close to the events of 1977 Star Warsthe art cards also hint that some classic ship and character designs will be making a return.
The Star Wars prequels were not well received at the time of their release in the early 2000s, but the three films have built a more positive reputation since then. McGregor’s Obi-Wan in particular was a standout for many viewers and it’s exciting that the character can be explored more fully in his own series. While the art cards don’t reveal much in terms of story, they do suggest that Obi-Wan Kenobi will be a show for new and veteran Star Wars fans will be right when it premieres on May 27, bringing a new perspective to the character and delighting both prequel and original trilogy fans with his costume, character, and ship design.
