"The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat: the fall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker, who he went to the dark side as the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader."

Ewan McGregor's interview

Ewan McGregor after 17 years will return to play the Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, in the Disney + series that will air in the spring.

The actor spoke in a recent interview about his character, about what happened to him after the fall of the Galactic Republic at the hands of Emperor Palpatine. Obi-Wan still feels the weight of a huge failure on him, he has not been able to save his padawan student, Anakin Skywalker, from the corruption of the dark side.

McGregor said: "We find Obi-Wan at the beginning of our story quite broken, disheartened and defeated. He gave up a little and seems to have lost his faith in the Force. He has changed a lot because of what happened at the end of the story.

Episode III with Order 66. With the Jedi Order purged almost entirely, the Jedi who have been slaughtered and all the survivors who have gone into hiding. After facing his personal failure, he feels the responsibility of allowing Anakin to to be tempted by the dark side.

Perhaps his teachings weren't strong enough to protect Anakin from all of this. I think this obviously impacts him very heavily."
