The CEO even has his account shielded† In the meantime, it has been picked up by the Hollywood Reporter, among others, who adds that “our own sources confirm the rumor, but of course it is not official until it is official.” Star Wars Day also falls on May the fourth in May. Perhaps that is the exact release date.

The series takes place ten years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by the same prequel actor, Ewan McGregor, lives under the pseudonym Ben Kenobi and watches from a distance over Luke Skywalker, son of Darth Vader, who has to stay hidden from his father. Darth Vader will also appear in the series, portrayed by Hayden Christensen, the actor who played Anakin Skywalker in Episodes II and III. Anakin turns into Darth Vader at the end of Episode III.

The series will have six episodes and will be released exclusively on Disney+. A trailer for the series has not yet been released, but Disney has already released concept art, which includes a new confrontation between Obi-Wan and Vader.
