On Thursday, the official Star Wars Twitter account released a video of Ewan McGregor relaying some very important information.

The Bad News: The premiere date of Obi-Wan Kenobi has been bumped from Wednesday, May 25 to Friday, May 27. It may only be two days (and coincides much better with this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California), but still…bleh.
The Good News: We’ll now be getting two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the premiere date.
Even for an impatient fanboy like me, that’s still great trade off. Although it means we’ll have seen a third of the series on the premiere date, we should also have a much better idea of where Obi-Wan Kenobi is headed after two installments.
Read the transcription of Ewan McGregor’s announcement below:
