Obi-Wan Kenobi Becomes First Star Wars Show in History to be Released in Theaters

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is set ten years after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and chronicles the narrative of Darth Vader’s attempt to track down and kill his old master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hayden Christensen reprises his role as Darth Vader, while Ewan McGregor reprises his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars prequels. It’s a Disney+ miniseries with six episodes.

Four of the six episodes of the newest Lucasfilm Disney+ series have now aired on the streaming platform. The plot makes it one of the most significant Star Wars live-action adaptations, so it’s weird to be viewing it at home rather than on the big screen. While The Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett were never given the opportunity to flourish on the big screen, it appears that Ewan McGregor’s comeback will.

Okay, we know you might be going back and reading the statement back and forth with your eyes bulging out thinking if that’s true. To re-assure, yes it is true. Obi-Wan Kenobi will be screened in theaters. According to Reddit user r/Ezio926, a listing on the website of Canadian movie theater network Cineplex revealed that Lucasfilm and Disney want to screen the whole six-episode run of Obi-Wan Kenobi in certain cinemas on Wednesday, June 22 – the day the series finale airs on Disney+.

The event will last 5 hours and 20 minutes in total, including a live Q&A session with a panel of attendees that are not known as of now. This is the first Disney+ series to be played in North American theatres and that too the entire season. Not to forget, this isn’t the only Disney+ series receiving a theatrical release. Marvel Studios’ latest, Ms. Marvel too will be released on the big screen in Pakistan. However, Ms. Marvel’s episodes will be released in pairs on June 16, June 30, and July 14 owing to the streaming service not being available in the country.
