Three new official images from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series have been released courtesy of Total Film’s upcoming issue, which will feature the Disney+ show and its cast heavily.
The first image is probably the most interesting thanks to the fact that it provides a look at Obi-Wan Kenobi in another color than brown or tan. He’s sporting a fresh blue tunic complete with a retired Jedi shaw, which is more thank likely his “disguise” while hiding out in the open on Tatooine.
This is probably what he wears while he works in whatever town we saw him traveling to in the teaser trailer. It’s actually a pretty decent not-a-Jedi disguise, as Obi does look like just another man in town, so it’s curious as to why he decides for a more Jedi-like disguise when he heads off world to Daiyu, which you can see in the second image below.
One would think wearing any sort of robe that resembles the garb of the fallen Jedi order would be dangerous, but apparently Obi-Wan does not, because he sports a more Jedi-like getup while on Daiyu. If you’ve been following along with the leaks, then you know why he’s here, but if you have not, then things will be left unsaid to keep your spoiler-free approach intact.
The final image provides a different angle of the Grand Inquisitor from a scene that was shown off in the trailer. Quite frankly, this angle of the villain make him look pretty damn good. Fan has a hissy fit over his appearance in the trailer, but outside of missing the yellow eyes, this angle makes Rupert’s Grand Inquisitor look just fine.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is set for a dual episode premiere on May 27th on Disney Plus!
Nick and I will talk more about these images on this week’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
