Finally, Ewan McGregor returns as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the highly-anticipated Disney Plus series premiering May 25. The new trailer also sees the return of the intense score from the prequel movies but the visual aesthetic is different than those debated movies for a much darker visual tone. Watch the new preview.
