Traveling abroad and don’t want to miss out? Read on to find out how you can watch Obi-Wan Kenobi online from anywhere with a VPN.

In this post, we’re only recommending official sources for watching Obi-Wan Kenobi online. While unlicensed streams are increasingly common, they’re notorious for their poor performance (low resolution and lag) as well as for being highly unreliable. That’s because many are taken offline for violating copyright. The good news is that there’s a quick and easy way for you to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi online from anywhere with official sources.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will be available to stream on a single region-locked platform. If you’re traveling abroad and want to continue streaming as normal, you’ll need to use a VPN.

How to watch Obi-Wan Kenobionline with a VPN

A VPN is a service that allows you to connect to a server in another location (such as your home country). By changing your IP address and spoofing your location, you can bypass restrictions on content such as those surrounding Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Here’s how to stream Obi-Wan Kenobi from abroad using a VPN:

  1. Start by signing up with a reputable VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are reliable and affordable alternatives.
  2. Next, you’ll need to download and install the VPN app on your streaming device. The good news is that this shouldn’t take more than a minute or two.
  3. Open the VPN app and connect to a server in your home country. This allows you to access your country’s version of Disney+ as normal.
  4. Now you can go to Disney+ (via web or the official app) and sign in. You should now be able to stream content such as Obi-Wan Kenobi without restriction.
  5. Having trouble? Clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Alternatively, you can try connecting to another server to change your IP address. Your VPN’s customer support may be able to provide further assistance.


NordVPN is offering a fully featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for Disney+ with no restrictions for a month—enough time to watch every single episode of the Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries.

There are no hidden terms—just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi online

There’s good news in that Obi-Wan Kenobi will be available to stream on Disney+. This streaming service is now available in most countries which means you can probably watch it from home without issue. The price of a subscription varies by country although you can expect to pay $7.99 (GBP £6.40) a month or $79.99 (£64.05) annually.

If you’re traveling abroad for a vacation, you’ll find that you can no longer stream content on your home country version of Disney+. Instead, you’ll only be able to watch downloaded TV shows and movies in offline mode. While you can stream the content of the version of Disney+ of whichever country you’re in at the time (if it’s even available in that country), you may prefer to access your usual library (particularly because content can vary between libraries).

To watch Obi-Wan Kenobi on your country’s version of Disney+ while traveling abroad, you’ll need to connect to a VPN server in that particular location. For example, to watch the US version of Disney+, connect to a server in the US. Doing so changes your IP address and unblocks the geo-restricted content. Don’t yet have a VPN to try this out? NordVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This is a great way to try a premium VPN risk-free.

What should I know about Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set a decade following the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith in which the Jedi were destroyed by Order 66 and Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader. Obi-Wan Kenobi is watching over a young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Much of the plot has so far been kept under wraps but what we do know is that, if the official trailer is anything to go by, Obi-Wan won’t be staying on Tatooine for long!

Who is in the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Star Wars fans are particularly excited to see the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi as well as Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse will also be reprising their prequel trilogy roles as Uncle Owen Lars and Aunt Beru.

Further cast members include Moses Ingram as Reva Sevander / The Third Sister, Indira Varma as an Imperial Officer, Rupert Friend as the Grand Inquisitor, Sung Kang as the Fifth Brother, and Kumail Nanjiani as Haja.
