Ewan McGregor Thanks Fans for Making Obi-Wan Kenobi a Disney+ Record Breaker

June 1, 2022

It was always going to take something big to dethrone The Mandalorian as having the most-watched original series premiere on Disney+. Ewan McGregor stepping into his old Obi-Wan Kenobi role was just that something as the newest Star Wars series hit the platform last weekend. While Disney did not release any numeric figures to show just how popular the series was – possibly with a worry that may end up getting compared directly to Netflix’s release of Stranger Things season 4 on the same day, it is clear that McGregor’s return to his Star Wars role has been hugely popular amongst fans. The actor himself took to his social media account following the news to thank fans for the support they have shown.
