There's no doubt that 2022 is shaping up to be a banner year for the Star Wars universe and with the franchise picking up a ton of momentum thanks to The Book of Boba Fett's success, Lucasfilm is more than determined to keep things rolling. So far, we still have three shows to watch out for this year, including the highly-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series which marks the triumphant return of both Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen.
Details about the show have remained scarce over the last couple of months but in a stunning turn of events, Disney+ executive Brandon SanGiovanni has accidentally spilled the show's release month on the streaming service. Taking to Twitter, the Enterprise/Global Program Manager for Disney+ revealed that the legendary Obi-Wan will be saying "Hello there" this May.
The tweet was quickly taken down, indicating that there has been an obvious mishap on SanGiovanni's part. Thankfully, fans were able to get a screenshot of the post before he was able to delete it. Check it out below:
Come to think of it, it makes absolute sense for the series to premiere on the month when Disney and Lucasfilm host the Star Wars Celebration. And given Disney+ has been airing its Marvel and Star Wars shows on Wednesdays, it would be fitting to debut Obi-Wan Kenobi on May 4th and I'm guessing that's the actual plan.
Obi-Wan Kenobi will consist of six episodes.
