Obi (not only) in the desert: The story of the «Kenobi» series
Obi-Wan, the Jedi Knight and former teacher of Anakin Skywalker, is one of the loneliest men in the galaxy: his order has been almost wiped out and the few remaining Jedi are being hunted down relentlessly. Inquisitors (played by Rupert Friend and Moses Ingram ) are after the survivors. Obi-Wan’s job is to watch from afar over whoever will one day rebuild the Jedi Order: young Luke Skywalker.
Directed by Deborah Chow , the mini-series takes place in large part on Luke’s sandy home planet of Tatooine.
