What would Star Wars be without one Obi-Wan Kenobi? It's pretty hard to imagine, I know and the famed Jedi master has become a bonafide legend in the franchise's storied history. Now, to commemorate his legacy, Lucasfilm has shared a touching and hair-raising tribute to immortalize the iconic Kenobi who has been a fixture in the Star Wars lore for over 40 years now.

Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures has released an epic new short which features the exploits of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The clip starts with an old Ben Kenobi who looks back on his adventures in a galaxy far, far away. The 1-minute short highlights Kenobi's epic battles with the likes of General Grievous and his protege-turned-adversary Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader. It also features the iconic voices of actors Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor and that is already a massive treat in itself. Experience it for yourself below:





 

The series of shorts target younger audiences and is meant to introduce children to the epic saga but that's not to say that the said animated pieces can't be enjoyed by longtime fans of the franchise as well. Meanwhile, Star Wars is gearing up for the release of the upcoming Obi-Wan series over at Disney+ and while we still have no clue what goes down in the highly anticipated show which is set to see the return of Ewan to the universe after 15 years, it's safe to assume that it takes place after the events of Revenge of the Sith and right before A New Hope.

The Obi-Wan series is currently in development.
