Sooner than you may think.
While we now know from a new poster (below) that the series will kick off on Wednesday, 25 May, we’re still uncertain of how many episodes the series will run (rumours suggest six, though). More than that, we’ve yet to see a proper trailer for the series!
While we wait for more information, here’s what we know. Just like other Disney+ series, we’ll get the episode the same day as in the USA, at a time that corresponds to 12.00 am PST. As we’re out of daylight savings time by that period, Aussies in the AEST timezone can expect the stream from 5.00 pm.
To recap, here’s what to expect and when, assuming the show will run for six episodes:
- Episode 1: 5.00 pm AEST, 27 May 2022
- Episode 2: 5.00 pm AEST, 27 May 2022
- Episode 3: 5.00 pm AEST, 8 June 2022
- Episode 4: 5.00 pm AEST, 15 June 2022
- Episode 5: 5.00 pm AEST, 22 June 2022
- Episode 6: 5.00 pm AEST, 29 June 2022
Update: A small delay means Obi-Wan Kenobi will miss its 25 May debut; the good news is that two episodes of the show will be available from 27 May instead. It’s as yet unclear if episode three will continue the next week or if we’ll have a gap when episode two was originally intended to air. We’ve erred on the side of the latter situation in the schedule above.
We’ll of course be updating this as we learn more.
The series stars stars Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker.
Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi starts streaming on Disney+ here in Australia from 27 May.
