Fortnite and crossovers - they just go together. New partnerships are announced again and again. In our weekly series, we present you with a Fortnite skin each time. Today, it's Obi-Wan Kenobi's turn.
More and more characters from TV shows, films and other games appear as skins in Fortnite. So that you don't lose sight of the story behind the characters, we'll keep you up to date. Our weekly series returns with a really nice collaboration between Star Wars and Fortnite.
Fortnite Skin Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character from the Star Wars series. In the original trilogy, Obi-Wan is a Jedi Master in a supporting role and is portrayed by British actor Alec Guinness. In the later-released prequel trilogy, a younger version of the character serves as one of the two main characters alongside Anakin Skywalker and is portrayed by Scottish actor Ewan McGregor. He is a mentor to Luke Skywalker, introducing him to the ways of the Jedi. And after sacrificing himself in a duel against Darth Vader, Obi-Wan guides Luke through the Force in his battle against the Galactic Empire.
Also available on Disney+ is the television miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi, which reprises the role of McGregor. In a partnership with Epic Games, this version of Obi-Wan also came to Fortnite Island and joined other Star Wars characters.
