After the announcement of the release date on Disney + of The Book of Boba Fett, Star Wars fans are now eager to know when it comes out Obi-Wan Kenobi, the TV series that will see return Ewan McGregor as the beloved Jedi master.
As we know, the shooting of the show started last April and ended in September and, although there is no official information about the release date, it seems that the TV series will still debut in the catalog next spring.
When does Obi-Wan Kenobi’s TV series come out?
Jordan Maison, a fairly reliable insider, would have become aware of information according to which Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released in May 2022, even in advance of the first rumors that instead saw June as the month chosen by Disney + for the landing on the streaming platform !
Twitter’s glitching… .y’all might not be able to see this….
* looks around *

The thing, after all, would not be so unlikely given that we are talking about the month of the year traditionally dedicated to Star Wars. And if Obi-Wan Kenobi’s TV series were to arrive on May 4th… well, what to say, chapeau!
