Details: According to the report, Darth Vader in “Obi-Wan Kenobi” will be “flipping and kicking.”

  • Vader will be an “angrier” version of Vader that we saw in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
  • He’s out for blood,” the report said.

The light side: The Making Star Wars report suggested Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and the Inquisitor will be featured prominently in the first two episodes.

Yes, but: The report is based on unnamed sources. While leaks like this can eventually prove true, it’s important to consider it with a little skepticism for now.

A larger world: Disney+ shared the official first poster for the new “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series on Wednesday.

  • The poster showed Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) walking across a stretch of sand, signaling a return to Tatooine.
  • McGregor recently told Forbes that he and actor Hayden Christensen had some scenes together as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, meaning we won’t be seeing only Darth Vader.
  • “I think it’s no secret that Hayden Christensen comes back and we got to play scenes together again as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and it was just fantastic to work with him again,” McGregor told Forbes.
