Obi-Wan Drops His Lightsaber For A Blaster In New Trailer

Happy Star Wars Day everybody. If you're a fan of the series, then there's bound to be plenty of news and reveals that will leave you grinning from ear to ear over the course of the next few hours. The first big reveal has come in the form of a new trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Disney+ show debuts later this month, and the new trailer to celebrate Star Wars Day has shown off a lot more of what we can expect from it.

For starters, Obi-Wan appears to be sans his iconic blue lightsaber. The Jedi is shown battling off a multitude of enemies as he is tracked and hunted across the galaxy ten years after the events of Revenge of the Sith using a blaster instead. The other biggest takeaway from the trailer is the amount of screen time dedicated to Darth Vader.

It still isn't much, but it's a lot more than we have seen up until this point. As flashes of other characters and moments from the six-part series are shown, clips of Vader being assembled are sprinkled in. The trailer then ends with a close-up of Obi-Wan's face, filled with fear as Vader's iconic breathing provides the soundtrack. One decade on from his defeat, it appears Anakin Skywalker will be presented with a second chance to take down his master.

Even though we haven't had a good look at him yet, it has already been confirmed Hayden Christensen will return to the role of Anakin/Vader for the new show. Christensen said it felt strange but also natural to be returning to the role for the first time in 17 years, and also that he watched the Clone Wars animated series in its entirety to prepare.

Elsewhere in the new trailer, Obi-Wan is shown watching a young Luke Skywalker from afar, and Luke's uncle Ben also returns to the Star Wars universe to remind Kenobi of what happened the last time he tried to train a Skywalker. Elsewhere this Star Wars day, lightsabers and a number of Star Wars characters have returned to Fortnite, and there's a very strong chance we get official confirmation that a Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is in the works before the day is out.
