While we’re still anxiously awaiting a trailer, it looks like we finally got our first look at the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. Entertainment Weekly offered a first look at the series, which not only included the confirmation of an INquiistor but also our first look at Ewan McGregor back in the titular role. The actor does tease however that we’re about to meet a very different man from the prequels.

So, it sounds like we’ll get a more intimate story with the Disney+ series that promises to fully explore what the Jedi Master had to go through after the Empire took over, while still keeping a close eye on a young Luke Skywalker.
He’s not the only returning face, as Joel Edgerton is also going to reprise his role as Uncle Owen, which he briefly played in the prequel trilogy. Deborah Chow, the series’ showrunner had some high praise to give for the actor, who is seen below facing off with the Inquisitor.
The article also hints that the Grand Inquisitor will appear in the series alongside a young Luke Skywalker. To be fair, the latter was to be expected with the return of Uncle Owen. It’s unclear if we’ll actually see him interact with Obi-Wan Kenobi but given how much he changed between this series and A New Hope, who knows if he forgot what the Jedi master looked like. We know he won’t be showing off his lightsaber in front of a young Luke, but the arrival of the Inquisitor might be what forces him to leave Tatooine behind for some time.
