Star Wars fans may not be getting a new movie in 2022, but they are getting the long-awaited Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series starring Ewan MacGregor and Hayden Christensen. Disney finally gave fans a small glimpse of this new Kenobi series thanks to a Disney+ Day teaser. And while there’s no actual footage of the series in the Obi-Wan trailer, we do get a wealth of new concept art from the upcoming Star Wars TV show.

The Obi-Wan teaser includes some tantalizing glimpses of the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. We’ve known for a while that Hayden Christensen is returning to reprise the Darth Vader role, suggesting this iconic villain has a significant part to play in the Kenobi series.

The first Vader image in the Kenobi trailer shows him in what appears to be his castle on Mustafar, conferring with a hologram of a character who could be an Inquisitor, Emperor Palpatine or even Obi-Wan himself.

The second image is very reminiscent of the final duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin at the end of Star Wars Episode III. It could also be taking place in the lava fields of Mustafar. However, Anakin is wearing his Vader armor here, suggesting we’re actually going to see Obi-Wan have a rematch with his fallen apprentice. Whatever happens, Obi-Wan may have to fake his own death in order to keep Vader from following him back to Tatooine.

For everything we found in the Kenobi teaser, from glimpses of Darth Vader to strange new worlds in the Star Wars galaxy, watch the full video breakdown!
