Star Wars is a staple in the expanding Fortnite multiverse.

Over the years, a multitude of characters and items from the iconic franchise have made their way to either the item shop or the battle pass, in the form of outfits, back bling, gliders, and more. Even lightsabers were added to the game as a weapon following an exclusive in-game preview of Rise of Skywalker in late 2019 and were recently unvaulted for a short time in May 2022.

The latest addition, arriving just before the start of Star Wars Celebration, is Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, with the outfit adopting the likeness of actor Ewan McGregor. McGregor, who played Kenobi in the prequel films, is set to reprise his role as the character in the soon-to-be-released Disney+ show Obi-Wan Kenobi.
