It wouldn’t be May the 4th without some new “Star Wars” content.
Today, Disney+ unveiled a trailer for the highly anticipated “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series with Ewan McGregor reprising his titular role alongside the return of Canadian star Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. Fans are getting their first look — sort of — at Christensen’s return as Darth Vader in the new trailer as we see a close-up of his iconic costume and hear his signature heavy breathing.

According to Disney, the story of the six-episode limited series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith”, in which Obi-Wan Kenobi (McGregor) faced his worst victory — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker (Christensen), who turned to the Dark Side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
