“Obi-Wan Kenobiwas the first live Star Wars show to premiere over multiple episodes, two of which were released on May 27. The show was also delayed to make room for a second episode, but only for two days.
The fourth Star Wars series to debut on the platform, Andor, was originally planned August 31 release, which was supposed to take place two weeks after the debut of “She-Hulk” on August 17th. This would make August 2022 the first month that the Marvel and Star Wars series were released on Disney+.
Alas, Disney+ wanted to set a different milestone and compete with its competitors with a longer premiere instead of the typical one movie a week release strategy.
