    Ahead of the of the two-year anniversary of Disney Plus, footage from the official sizzle reel from last year's Disney Investor Day surfaced online, showing how the team behind the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series prepared to revisit the character during the 'Dark Times' of the Star Wars galaxy.





    In a strange twist, an account uploading videos tied to Disney Plus Hotstar - an international version of Disney Plus - has released a behind-the-scenes look at Obi-Wan Kenobi a day before the Disney Plus Day presentation. It's a brief sizzle reel that Disney investors saw on Disney Investor Day a year ago, although it's only making the rounds now. Having been put together before production began on the series, no new footage was shown with the sizzle reel, but an abundance of concept art and a bit of training videos was included, along with short interview bites from lead actor Ewan McGregor and director Deborah Chow.

    It appears that this was also the preview that they chose to reveal for Disney Plus Day. All the same, this is a really neat tease into the return of a beloved character and what his mission will be years after Revenge of the Sith and before A New Hope. Check it out below:



    [UPDATE: The video has been taken down by Disney. That being said, the sizzle reel is now available to watch on Disney Plus. Nonetheless, you can check out concept art of the series below.]



    The series wrapped production two months ago in Los Angeles, and we still have to wait a little while to see it, but we'll take what we have for now. This is arguably the most highly anticipated Star Wars project of 2022, perhaps the most anticipated since The Force Awakens, and so far, it looks like it will deliver.



    Obi-Wan Kenobi will reportedly consist of six hour-long episodes, written by Joby Harold, Hossein Amini, and Hannah Friedman, and directed by The Mandalorian's Deborah Chow. It will see the return of Ewan McGregor as the title character, as well as Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars, and Bonnie Piesse as Beru. It will debut next year, exclusively on Disney Plus.



    After watching the behind-the-scenes reel 50 times, make sure to check out our editorial on five things to look forward to in the series, as well our piece on how A New Hope tells us what will and wont happen in the series. In addition, if you want to see even more from the production, you may also read our exclusive report from a couple of months ago, in which we revealed concept art from the series.



    Stick with us here at SWNN for coverage and editorial breakdowns of all the Star Wars reveals from Disney Plus Day. In the meantime, here's a selection of concept art and rehearsal videos from the behind-the-scenes reel:
