Disney+’s “Obi-Wan Kenobi” was the top anticipated new show, Netflix’s “Stranger Things” was the most anticipated returning show, and Disney’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was the top anticipated movie on the Whip Media charts for May.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” starts streaming on Disney+ May 27. The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and begins 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader.
The fourth season of “Stranger Things” starts streaming on Netflix May 27. In season four, it’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, the group of friends are separated for the first time. Meanwhile, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debuts in theaters May 6. Based on the Marvel Comics, the film follows the further adventures of Dr. Stephen Strange as he protects a girl who can hop between realities.
