On the cover of Entertainment Weekly, we see Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi holding his lightsaber.

Series star Ewan McGregor explains, “We find Obi-Wan at the beginning of our story rather broken, and faithless, and beaten, somewhat given up.”

Here we see McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi in a cavern on Tatooine, where he watches over a young Luke Skywalker from afar.

The series introduces a new planet to the Star Wars universe. It’s called Daiyu, which series writer Joby Harold describes as “a graffiti-ridden, edgy Hong Kong.”


Moses Ingram’s force-sensitive Inquisitor Reva provides a formidable new foe. The “ruthlessly ambitious” villain seeks out Jedi-in-hiding for the Empire.

Reva shares a common dark-side goal with Darth Vader and the Grand Inquisitor.

Uncle Owen

Joel Edgerton returns as Uncle Owen, who is burdened with the secret of both Luke and Obi-Wan’s presence on Tatooine.
