Hayden Christensen and Deborah Chow Host the Toronto Marathon Screening of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Series and Finale

 

The FORCE was strong in Toronto, Canada last night as Disney+ hosted an Obi-Wan Kenobi marathon screening of the hit series and finale! The event was also attended by the “chosen one” himself, Hayden Christensen and director Deborah Chow.

From the official press release:

Today in Toronto, an “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Marathon Screening event took place, featuring all six episodes of the series, with simultaneous finale episode screenings in Cineplex theaters in nine other Canadian markets. Director Deborah Chow and Hayden Christensen, who are both from Toronto, were on hand to introduce the screening at the red-carpet event. A Q&A with Chow and Christensen followed the screening and was livestreamed to participating theaters in Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Ottawa, London and Halifax.

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. “Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold.
