Exactly one month after the action-packed finale of “The Book of Boba Fett” premiered on Disney+, the streaming platform surprised fans by dropping the first teaser trailer for its “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series on March 9. The video features the long-awaited return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan.

Now, after 17 years away from the franchise, McGregor is back.
