Obi-Wan Kenobi is wrapping up its inaugural season. The Season 1 finale of the Disney+ limited series starring Ewan McGregor dropped on Wednesday (June 22). McGregor reprises his role as the iconic Jedi Master, alongside Hayden Christensen, who returns as Darth Vader.
According to Disney, the six-episode series picks up 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Kenobi “faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.”
Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie are among the cast.
The series is directed by Deborah Chow and executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, McGregor, and Joby Harold.
Obi-Won Kenboi premiered in May, during the same week as the 45th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie and the Star Wars celebration held in Anaheim, Calif. During the convention, Disney+ announced Andor, a new Star Wars spinoff series starring Diego Luna; it arrives in August. The streaming platform also revealed that The Mandalorian season three will debut in February 2023 and announced another upcoming series — Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, starring Jude Law.

How to Watch Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+
Obi-Wan Kenobi is streaming exclusively on Disney+ at no additional charge to subscribers. Not subscribed to Disney+? Join today for $7.99 a month (or $79.99 a year) to start streaming Obi-Wan Kenobi along with countless other original series, movies and more available only on Disney+.
Disney+ is home to exclusive programs from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. With thousands of hours of entertainment, Disney+ is great for the whole family.
Some of the exclusives available on Disney+ include Ms. Marvel, The Book of Boba Fett, Moon Knight, Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Sneakerella, Turning Red, Hawkeye, The Proud Family: Loud and Prouder, Cheaper by the Dozen, Better Nate Than Ever, Paralells and Olivia Rodrigo: Driving Home 2 U. Other exclusives premiering on the platform include She Hulk, Baymax, Hollywood Starlit, Ironheart, The Family Reboot and Rise.
Currently, Disney+ does not offer a free trial, but there are a few budget-friendly ways to save on your bill. For starters, signing up for a yearly membership will save you cash in the long run, and the bundle deals adds Hulu and ESPN+ for $13.99 a month, which is cheaper than subscribing to each platform separately. Hulu subscribers also have the option of adding Disney+ by itself for an additional $2.99 a month.
Disney+ allows up to seven profiles under one subscription and streaming on up to four different devices at once.
The Disney+ monthly plan is another great option because you’re not tied to a contract and can cancel at any time, but you’ll have to go through a third party to land a free trial. Unfortunately, Verizon’s limited deal offering the Disney+ bundle for free six-month subscriptions ended on May 31. It’s unclear if the promotion will return.
If you’re an American Express cardholder, you may be eligible to receive a free subscription to Disney+ through an entertainment credit from the card company. Click here for more information.
