We’re mere hours away from the premiere of the highly anticipated Star Wars prequel series Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ahead of the premiere, John Williams performed Obi-Wan Kenobi’s theme live for all in attendance at this year’s annual Star Wars celebration in Anaheim.
While the performance wasn’t livestreamed, some in attendance managed to get video of the performance, and it’s every bit as epic as it sounds.

Now, John Williams didn’t score the upcoming series. That job ultimately went to Academy Award-winner Natalie Holt. However, the two did collaborate on a brand new theme for the galaxy far, far away’s exiled Jedi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi begins streaming on Disney+ exclusively tomorrow.
Deborah Chow, who helmed several episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian, will both produce and direct the entire 6-episode series.
In addition to having Ewan McGregor reprise his role as the titular Jedi for the series, Hayden Christensen will return to play Darth Vader too. As you can tell by the trailer Joel Edgarton will reprise his role as Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen in the series. Jimmy Smits and Bonnie Piesse will appear in their original roles from the franchise too.
Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit) And Rupert Friend (Homeland) lead the remaining supporting cast as the franchise’s first live-action Inquisitors. Friend appears to playing The Grand Inquisitor in the series.
The rest of the cast consists of Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Sung Kang (Fast and Furious franchise), Simone Kessell (Terra Nova), Benny Safdie (Pieces of a Woman), Maya Erskine (Pen15), and Flea.
