The entire cast of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ has been released by Disney+.
This will be a part of the Star Wars universe with Obi-Wan returning. Disney+ has announced this series based on ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ with Ewan McGregor returning for the role. Rumors about this show have been around for years but now Disney has confirmed that this series is happening.
This Obi-Wan Kenobi series is going to be amazing because it will bring Darth Vader and Obi-Wan together since the battle in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith which was 15 years ago.
Disney + revealed on 29th March 2021 that the shooting for Obi-Wan Kenobi will start in April 2021. Ewan told Eddie Izzard that “We start making it in the late spring, and I think we’re going to be shooting it here in LA. It’s so funny – every week there’s a new report… there’s another tabloid expose that we’re shooting it in some bizarre town somewhere. Then we’re meant to be making it in Boston, then, ‘No, it wasn’t Boston, it was Boston, England.’ But we’re not. We’re shooting it in LA.”
The entire cast of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ was announced by Disney+ on 29 March in a press release. This show will see Hayden Christensen returning as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Hayden was last seen in the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as Anakin/Darth Vader. He had a small cameo in the 2019 film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Bonnie Piesse will be seen as Beru Lars. The other cast members are Joel Edgerton, Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Rupert Friend, Indira Varma, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Simone Kessell, Sung Kang, and Benny Safdie.
No specifics about the show have been announced but we do know some things about Obi-Wan Kenobi. The press release by Disney+ stated, “The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.”
There will be a face-off between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan which is being called the “rematch of the century.” Ewan noted in exclusive footage that was for investors, “there’s a hunger for this character to come back,” according to ComicBook.com. Deborah Chow who is directing this series said, “This is quite a dark time that we’re coming into with him, just being a Jedi — it’s not safe. There’s Jedi hunters out there.”
A reunion of Anakin and Obi-Wan was also teased by Ewan. He said, “The most beautiful thing of all is that it’s brought me back together with Hayden. It’ll be amazing to bring those characters back together again, very unexpectedly.”
The release date for this show has not yet been announced. It will most likely air in 2022. Obi-Wan Kenobi will only be available on Disney+. This will most likely be available like The Mandalorian, one episode per week. Disney+ has not yet announced how many episodes will be in the series.
