Disney+ is has revealed the cast for the upcoming ‘Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi’ show.
It does indeed appear that Darth Vader will be in the new show as Hayden Christensen is listed in the cast. I’m happy to see him return. Ewan McGregor is back to play Obi-Wan again as well.
The new show is being directed by Deborah Chow and will star: Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Joel Edgerton was the actor that played Owen Lars in the prequel trilogy and Bonnie Piesse played Beru Lars opposite him.
The new show will take place 10 years after ‘Revenge of the Sith.’
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
“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.”
Filming is set to start in April.
