Transcript for 'Star Wars' fans celebrate series premiere of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’
[MUSIC - JOHN WILLIAMS, "STAR WARS MAIN THEME"] - Oh, it is a big day for Star Wars fans here, very excited. "Obi-Wan Kenobi" finally dropping on Disney Plus overnight, and fans are celebrating all things Star Wars this weekend in Anaheim, California. Our Zohreen Shah got the chance to take it all in, the out of the world experience, the sights, the sounds, the stars. Zohreen, good morning. - Hey, good morning, Whit. But first, it was just announced that "Mandalorian" season three drops in February, but fans here are just as excited about shows like "Obi-Wan" and "Andor." We sat down with those casts yesterday to talk about the storylines that everyone has been waiting for. The Star Wars celebration is back and better than ever before. - Star Wars celebration. [CHEERING] - I think that's the closest I'll ever come to feeling like Beyonce. [LAUGHTER] I was really just, like-- ZOHREEN SHAH: After 17 years, Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor together on stage again, making their return to the Star Wars universe. - Looking across the set, Hayden was like some kind of time warp. Like, the 17 years that came between Episode 3 and now just didn't happen. ZOHREEN SHAH: Reprising their roles as Obi-Wan and Darth Vader on the six-part "Obi-Wan" series. In a surprise for fans, the first two episodes dropping last night. - The first take that we did together, I was-- I had like a streak of real fear went through me. When you see Vader's helmet, the face coming at you, it was absolutely terrifying. - It's-- it's such a remarkable costume. And you put it on, you can't help but feel a little evil, I guess. ZOHREEN SHAH: "Obi-Wan" takes place between Episodes 3 and 4 of the Star Wars films, introducing new cast members and lightsabers to the Star Wars universe. - You can't escape him. - It's an amazing moment when they come over with a sort of locked suitcase. And they open it and they say, no, that's-- that's your lightsaber. It's a big moment. ZOHREEN SHAH: It's sets just years apart from the events in the "Andor" series, set to drop this August. GENEVIEVE O'REILLY: To play a woman who is standing there representing her planet in the Galactic Senate, it feels important. - If you really doing this, I want to help. ZOHREEN SHAH: That series, a 12-part prequel to "Rogue One" starring Diego Luna, returning to the role of Cassian Andor from the film. - "Andor" is a story about migration, you know. I live in a world where everyone seems to be from somewhere else, you know. People that are pushed out from where they belong. ZOHREEN SHAH: And I couldn't leave without first getting the chance to meet a new friend in the Star Wars universe. How excited are you to star in a film? I couldn't have said it better myself. And so, one of the biggest stars here yesterday was not even here to talk about Star Wars. Harrison Ford dropped by to give a very big update about "Indiana Jones five." That one comes out next summer. Guys. LARA SPENCER: So, excited. There's so much good stuff happening. "Obi-Wan," who's in? - Yeah. - Oh, definitely. - Way in.
