Fortnite and collaborations are two words connected, like chains. After their RPG title gained popularity in 2018 -19, the franchise decided to collaborate with every top-grossing movie, celebrity, and pop star. Indirectly, this helped in gaining more users as the game allowed them to play with their favorite character. 

Players have anticipated the release of the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi because of multiple reasons. First, Disney is about to release its TV series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, next week. Second, we all know that Fortnite and Disney have a history of collaborations before such big releases.

Third, the battle royale title already has the Jedi’s lightsaber, so introducing its master is necessary. And last, Fortnite always looks to keep its fans hooked, so adding this skin is mandatory.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi outfit will try to look just like the original, thanks to the creative heads of Fortnite.
