As we enter the theater of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, things will begin to form up for the next Star Wars Disney+ series. According to EW, director Deborah Chow explained how it influences the current franchise canon. "The story for us, it takes place 10 years after ''Revenge of the Sith.''

"There are just a few actors and roles where there''s just so much collaboration where they are one, and that''s what I was feeling for." Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres on Disney+ on May 27.
