Obi-Wan Kenobi executive producer and director Deborah Chow talks about what sets the upcoming miniseries apart from other Star Wars shows.

The series is set to premiere on May 30 on Disney+ with a six-episode run planned and Chow directing every episode. Chow had previously directed two episodes of The Mandalorian season 1.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will follow the titular Jedi master ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III -Return of the Sith while he watches over a young Luke Skywalker as he grows up on Tattoine

There's much speculation regarding which characters will appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi given its close narrative relationship to the Skywalker Saga.

What also sets the series apart is its direct relationship to canon, for The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett have only been tangentially related to core Star Wars canon

McGregor has also compared Obi-Wan Kinobi to one long movie, echoing Chow when he talks about the contained nature of the narrative and how that benefits the story.

McGregor's performance is often cited as one of the strongest aspects of the uneven prequel trilogy, giving the audience the closest thing to a protagonist those films have.

In the end, Chow knows how the series sets itself apart, and on May 30, when Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres, audiences will see what sets it apart as well.
