Disney and Lucasfilm have unveiled the main cast members for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series on their various social media accounts. The cast, revealed in a photo, shows the already confirmed Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, reprising their roles from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Newly confirmed reprisals also include Joel Edgerton returning as Owen Lars and Bonnie Piesse as Beru Lars. The pair previously portrayed the young versions of the aunt and uncle of Luke Skywalker in the prequels.
Among the new faces confirmed for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series include Moses Ingram, recently seen in The Queen’s Gambit, Kumail Nanjiani, best known for his Oscar-nominated film The Big Sick, and Indira Varma from Game of Thrones. Rounding out the remaining cast includes Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie. The new post also confirms that filming is set to begin filming this April, with the series being set ten years after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. With all of these talented actors and The Mandalorian’s Deborah Chow serving as showrunner, this new Obi-Wan series seems like, from a quality perspective, it’s certainly going to have the high ground.
