After months of anxious waiting, we can finally (finally!) watch Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney Plus. The latest Star Wars show to premiere on the streaming service, this new miniseries is set ten years after the events of the prequel trilogy (namely 2005's Revenge of the Sith) and sees Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprising their roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, respectively. 

The series has been in development for years, and many Star Wars fans (like most of us here at Android Central) have been eagerly awaiting this day since Obi-Wan left Anakin lying wounded on that lava beach. A decade later, the legendary Jedi is coping with the destruction of his Order and his failure to stop Anakin from turning to the Dark Side. Anakin, for his part, is now the infamous Sith Lord Darth Vader and is using his power to hunt down any remaining Jedis. The Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries follows the release of other great Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, but we'll see if it joins the ranks of best Disney Plus shows

Either way, some serious adventure awaits, and I for one can't wait to watch the first two episodes as soon as they're released on Disney Plus this Friday, May 27 at 3am ET / 12am PT. Keep reading to learn how you can watch the new Star Wars miniseries from the comfort of your living room, plus we'll share an an episode schedule and take a look at the official trailer.
