Today Total Film revealed two covers for their next issue featuring Obi-Wan Kenobi. The issue goes on sale April 26th and will include interviews with Obi-Wan himself Ewan McGregor, Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker actor Hayden Christensen, Reva actress Moses Ingram, along with director and showrunner Deborah Chow.
It appears marketing for Obi-Wan Kenobi is beginning to ramp up finally, as promotion for the series has been quiet since the teaser trailer release back in February alongside the Entertainment Weekly cover. Earlier this week promotional art for Obi-Wan Kenobi, that’ll be used for figures (though Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to announce any merchandise pertaining to the series), was spotted in the wild and it was also reported yesterday that new footage from the highly anticipated limited-series will debut within a week. However the footage being released is likely not a new trailer, which has led to speculation that we might be getting to a clip of the show, a TV spot, or some kind of featurette.
In other Kenobi news, earlier today it was confirmed via Variety that Natalie Holt, best known for her work on Loki, has scored the soundtrack to the series, which confirmed earlier rumours from this week, and that John Williams will be composing a singular theme for the series. Holt has now made history being the first female composer for a Star Wars live-action project, and told Variety, “It’s been exciting and overwhelming at times, because I’m such a fan. I want to pay respect to the history of it, and do it justice as well.”
