The show is a continuation of the Obi-Wan Kenobi story, with the official synopsis reading: “The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of 'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat: the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.”
We will fill this story up with reviews as they come in but here's what a few people are saying about the episodes. And, don't worry, it's spoiler free.
First episode over — and wow, what a start to #ObiWan, a very special premier that pulls Obi into the action in a very unexpected way. Glad they’re releasing two at once, because one is not enough! #StarWarsCelebrationhttps://t.co/H9BF6EQhvx

#ObiWanKenobi’s first episode is really surprising! I really enjoyed it in ways that I wasn’t expecting.
Some big character moments and surprising plot lines drive it to set up a really intriguing start. It feels like there’s still so much more to come. pic.twitter.com/7ZmGTRaJ6f
