New trailer for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi teases new Darth Vader design

A brand new trailer for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi has just debuted online for May the 4th, teasing a new design for Darth Vader.

Perhaps in an effort to remedy Revenge of the Sith’s infamous, anticlimactic ‘noooo’, the new Disney+ limited series will apparently feature a scene in which Vader slowly and methodically applies his armour. Towards the end of the show’s new trailer, a cleaner, newer version of the iconic chest plate – complete with red and green buttons – can be seen being fixed to the Sith Lord’s torso.

That’s just one of several tantalising new scenes included in the new trailer, which mixes together previously-seen footage with brand new glimpses at Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Inquisitors and even Owen Lars, who has a brief but poignant conversation with the Jedi Master. Check out the trailer in full by hitting play on the clip below.

What this trailer doesn’t necessarily do is give us any more insight into the three LEGO Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi sets rumoured to be launching later this year. Beyond the BrickHeadz two-pack of Obi-Wan and Vader – which pretty much speaks for itself – little is known about the other two, beyond vague descriptors from online product listings.

75336 Spaceship from Kenobi is still most likely to be the Grand Inquisitor’s ship, at least based on the first two trailers, while 75334 Obi-Wan Darth Vader – probably not its final name – is said to be a location-based set. We haven’t seen anything alluding to a showdown between the two characters thus far, so any further details are still a mystery at this point, but a new Vader minifigure design seems likely based on this new trailer.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
