The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is one of the most anticipated projects in development for Star Wars fans.
Until now we knew that the Lucasfim production will star Ewan McGregor and will feature important appearances, such as Hayden Christiansen in the role of Anakin Skywalker and, later, Darth Vader.
Now, Disney has revealed the date the series should hit the Disney Plus platform. Through a post on Twitter, the company noted that the Star Wars fiction will be released on May 25.

It is a special date for the successful franchise, since that day marks the premiere of the first film of the original saga in 1977.
The announcement of the premiere was also accompanied by the publication of the first official poster of the series, where Obi-Wan Kenobi appears walking on the dunes of the planet Tatooine.
In addition to this information and some of the actors that make up the cast, the study has not provided more details about the fiction.
What is known is that it should be set after the events that were part of Episode Three, Revenge of the Sith.
It should be remembered that this year, Disney Plus also released The Book of Boba Fett series that, after a lukewarm start, managed to excite the most demanding Star Wars fans.
The return of The Mandalorian and its third season is also scheduled for this year, which is eagerly awaited by lovers of fiction created by George Lucas.
