The first two episodes are now available on Disney Plus Obi Wan Kenobi to hop in – and Episode 3 is coming on Wednesday, so you won’t have to wait too long for your next fix.
Also on Disney Plus is Marvel Studios: Assembled – The Making of Moon Knight, which takes us behind the scenes of the Oscar Isaac-led MCU series, while Apple TV Plus has the dino documentary Prehistoric Planet if you’re up for something factual .
For movies, you can choose from indie award-winner Emergency on Prime Video, Danish drama A Taste of Hunger starring Game of Thrones alum Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on Hulu, or Ben Affleck’s version of Daredevil on Disney Plus UK.
