With weeks of talk about The Rise of Skywalker, it’s easy for Star Wars fans to get lost in the crowd. Sometimes a fan’s gotta do something bold and original to stand out. Today marks the release of Kenobi, starring Jamie Costa and James Arnold Taylor. “On the desert planet Tatooine, an aging warrior who goes by the name of “Ben” stands silent watch over a special child who holds the fate of the galaxy. But Ben is consumed with doubts and guilt – he failed the Republic, the Jedi order, and his dearest friend. As he dwindles away, questioning his purpose alone in the desert, he will be tested as his very presence draws threats both known and unknown towards the Skywalker boy.”
Check out the trailer for Kenobi below, then head to Jamie Costa’s YouTube channel for the entire 18 minute film (It’s the perfect set-up to watching Star Wars: A New Hope again).
