Unfortunately, the footage is exclusive to a streaming service.

There were plenty of exciting announcements on Disney Plus Day, including reveals of series and movies currently in development, premiere dates and first look images. However, Star Wars fans were vehement about their biggest desire: a first look at Obi-Wan Kenobi, a new live-action series set in the Star Wars universe.

The series, which sees Ewan McGregor reprise his role as Obi-Wan from the Star Wars prequel trilogy, will arrive on Disney Plus sometime in 2022. In wonderful news, the show will also see Hayden Christensen reprise his role as Darth Vader. While it's too soon for a trailer, Disney took advantage of Disney Plus Day to get fans even more hyped for the project by releasing a behind-the-scenes look at what's to come.

The downside? At the time of writing, the sizzle reel is only available to watch on Disney Plus. The video confirms an Obi-Wan versus Darth Vader rematch via concept art and features McGregor expressing his enthusiasm for getting to work on the project. To join in the fun, however, you need a Disney Plus account.
