Battersea Power Station brightens the night skies ahead of the launch of Obi-Wan Kenobi, exclusively on Disney+
Tomorrow, the whole world will bear witness as ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ makes its bow exclusively on Disney+. What the fans have been crying out for ever since ‘Revenge Of The Sith’ is almost upon us. In celebration of the event, London’s newly restored Battersea Power Station lit up the night sky. A spectacular Lightsaber illumination reached towards the heavens, representing both the Lightside and the Darkside of the force. The station appeared to have been reclaimed from a famous Tatooine sandstorm as it lit up.
“OBI-WAN KENOBI” begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ launches exclusively on Disney+ from tomorrow. The first two episodes will begin the six-part limited series with weekly episodes dropping every Wednesday. Battersea Power Station itself will reopen to the public in September 2022.
