That means Luke Skywalker will be 9 or 10 years old when the series begins.
Obi-Wan, meanwhile, will be about 48 years old, just nine years after his death in A New Hope.
The setting of the series also means that the events of his story will take place around nine years before the Battle of Yavin in A New Hope, which saw Luke successfully destroy the Death Star and the war between the Empire and the Rebellion will finally take a turn for the better.
While the entire galaxy has been subdued by the new Empire of Sheev Palpatine and his second-in-command Darth Vader, the Jedi Knight of the former Republic serves a self-imposed exile on Tatooine.
During that time, Obi Wan has been developing new techniques and ideology for the jedi while questioning the old order and its existential codes.
The highly anticipated Disney+ series, which is set to premiere takes place after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, but before the start of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
This Deborah Chow-directed series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. Meanwhile, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie complete the cast.
