What time does ‘Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi’ release on Disney Plus?

“Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi” premieres this Friday, May 27, exclusively on Disney Plus, and for Star Wars fans, it’s an exciting time that represents new steps toward a different future for the franchise.

The new 6-episode series will premiere its first two episodes at 3:00 a.m. ET, Friday (12:00 a.m. PT, 7 a.m. GMT), so if you want to be the first to see it, you’ll have to stay up (or get up really early). Once it’s live, you can watch it anytime as long as you’re a Disney+ subscriber.

New episodes will be released every Friday until June 24 at the same time.

In “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Ewan McGregor returns to the role of the beloved Jedi Master seventeen years after his last appearance in “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” The series will take place during the time period between that film and “Episode IV – A New Hope,” and will reunite McGregor with Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader.

It’s the latest step toward a different take on the “Star Wars” franchise, recently detailed by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in an interview with Vanity Fair. She said the series will shift from its focus on film trilogies to “lingering storytelling” (read: more TV series), which fans have already gotten a taste of in “The Mandalorian” and “Book of Boba Fette.”

This is what you need to know.

Thanks to trailers, we know quite a bit more than that ahead of the series premiere. The series will introduce a new villain to the franchise, named Reva. He will join the ranks of the fearsome Sith Inquisitors, last seen in the animated television series “Star Wars: Rebels.”

The series will also catch up with Obi-Wan on Tatooine, where fans last saw him leaving Luke with Owen and Beru Lars, as well as taking him off-world to other planets. Take a look at the latest trailer:

How much does Disney+ cost?

$7.99 per month or $79.99 for a full year. If you’re looking to save on a lot of streaming content, consider subscribing to the Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for $13.99/mo. It’s like getting three services for the price of two, so if you’re interested in just two of them, that’s a no-brainer.
