May the force be with them.
On Monday, March 29, Disney+ announced the cast joining Ewan McGregor for its highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series. As E! News readers well know, the 49-year-old actor will reprise his role as the legendary Jedi Master, who is the titular character of the new show. And, as we reported back in December, Obi-Wan Kenobi marks the return of Hayden Christensen‘s portrayal of Darth Vader.
So, who will be joining these famous foes on screen? Per the streaming service, the cast includes Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
We’re assuming Edgerton and Piesse are reprising their prequel movie roles of Owen and Beru Lars (aka Luke Skywalker’s aunt and uncle)—and we couldn’t be more excited. And it seems we won’t have to wait too long for the series as Disney+ confirmed that Obi-Wan Kenobi will begin filming in April.
