Good news, for those on or off the high ground — Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi is here, and it’s here early.

In a tweet at the 11th hour, the series’ official Twitter account revealed that the first two episodes will be arriving on the streaming service three hours earlier than expected, at 9 pm PT.

After premiering at LucasFilm’s studio showcase earlier today (May 27), the first two episodes will be old news by the time the original release time of 12 am PT rolls around.

While there’s nothing confirmed, it would seem that the decision was made so the series, which Disney Plus has spent a long time promoting, wouldn’t have to compete as much with Netflix’s own sci-fi juggernaut, Stranger Things 4, which will drop at the Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s previously-scheduled release time.

With the exception of the first two episodes, future installments of Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released weekly. However, the fourth season of Stranger Things will be released in two volumes. The first volume, consisting of seven episodes, arrives on May 27. The second volume, which will feature the final two episodes of the season, will be out in July.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will run for six episodes, ending on June 22. Ewan McGregor reprises his role from the prequel films, joined by Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, Moses Ingram, and more. Additionally, Hayden Christensen will also be returning, reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

Watch the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi now via Disney Plus.
