Obi-Wan’s journey continues this week.

It’s an exciting time to be a Star Wars fan.

The new series, which takes place 10 years after 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, follows Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan as he’s forced to embark on a journey that will bring him face-to-face with his biggest demons and regrets.
