What is Obi-Wan Kenobi about?

The six-part limited series finds Obi-Wan a broken man, living in exile on Tatooine as he keeps a distant watch over a certain Skywalker.

Yet Jedi continue to be targeted as traitors of the Empire, and Obi-Wan has to dodge bounty hunters and a sinister group called the Inquisitorius.

The latter are the show’s central villains, played by Moses Ingram, Sung Kang, and – baddest bad of them all – Rupert Friend, whose Grand Inquisitor character wields a wicked spinning double-bladed lightsaber.
