Disney is embracing the competition: As Ewan McGregor himself announced in a video message , » Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi » will not appear on Disney+ until two days later. The new start date is therefore May 27, 2022, a Friday.
Normally, original series and films on Disney+ are now always released on a Wednesday, and in fact “Obi-Wan” then continues on Wednesdays and on a weekly basis. As a result, Disney is creating double competition, because on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, the new MCU series » Ms. Marvel » will start on Disney+.

«Obi-Wan» has six episodes, so for three weeks Disney+ is going with «Ms. Marvel» and «Obi-Wan Kenobi» itself competition on Wednesdays , rather than Obi-Wan Kenobi making way for the young superhero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) like a true Jedi master and gentleman. And that’s not all:
Also, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi now launches on May 27 against another big and much-anticipated series: Stranger Things Season 5 on Netflix. We don’t really understand the reason for the postponement, because the Jedi master has twice as much competition. Maybe you want to attract a lot of people with a start on Friday?
And the good news?
We also promised you good news in the headline, and of course we don’t want to withhold it: there will be two episodes on Disney Plus at the start of «Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi». Episode 3 should then be released on June 1st and the other episodes will then be released every week as usual.
