Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is a six-episode miniseries set a decade after the events narrated in Revenge of the Sith. In addition to Ewan McGregor, who will once again put himself in the shoes of the Jedi master, another of the important actors of the prequels will be back. Hayden Christensen will not play Anakin Skywalker, but his darkest alter ego, Darth Vader. The actor has been seen in Florida Supecon, and although he has not yet made any statements, he has presented himself with something that has not gone unnoticed: a cap from the series.
Christensen posed in a Star Wars stunt team: Obi-Wan Kenobi cap. Little has been said about his role in fiction, although an official concept art shows Darth Vader without the mask, which suggests the possibility that we see his face under his robotic suit.
Veteran cast, but also new
Lucasfilm also featured Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who repeat as Owen and Beru Lars. Kumail Nanjiani, Sung Kang, O’Shea Jaconson Jr., Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie are new to the cast. The one who has not confirmed his return is Liam Nesson, who appeared in The Phantom Menace as Master Qui-Gon Jinn, as well as in an episode of the animated series The Clone Wars. Be that as it may, all episodes will be directed by Deborah Chow, who already has experience in the saga. Not surprisingly, she is one of the directors of The Mandalorian.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi to premiere on Disney + sometime in 2022. At the moment, a more specific date has not been announced. What is clearer is the arrival of The Book of Boba Fett, a series scheduled for December 2021. Star Wars: Andor and The Mandalorian season 3 can be seen from next year.
