Breaking Down the Obi-Wan Kenobi Trailer
There’s much to be learned in 1:29 of new Star Wars footage….
Okay, as we post, we’re 20 days from the premiere of two episodes of Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the days drag on (Tatooine-like) as we anticipate the long-awaited series.
However, earlier this week, fans did get a bit of a respite with the debut of the Official Trailer from Lucasfilm.

One More Moment
Finally, there remains one more moment that had me happy while watching. But it was a tweet about the moment that made me pause to smile:
Everyone involved with Obi-Wan Kenobi sounds so pleased to be part of the project. I can’t wait to sit down on the couch on May 27 and return to Tatooine.
