Disney’s resolution to create new Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe tales as episodic streaming exhibits has paid off handsomely to this point. The Mandalorian, WandaVision, and now The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are all smash hits. Many extra exhibits are on the way in which, together with Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, which begins filming in April.
Ewan McGregor is reprising his position as Outdated Ben, who we final noticed in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. That movie’s tragic ending of Anakin Skywalker reworking into Darth Vader is the muse for this present, which picks up roughly 10 years after that occasion. Hayden Christensen can be reprising his position as Darth Vader, who will hopefully have extra traces of dialogue than “Noooo!”
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is directed by Deborah Chow, who additionally filmed two episodes of The Mandalorian. Lucasfilm right this moment introduced extra of the forged, which is loaded with names you will acknowledge. We are able to sit up for seeing Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani (an actor from Mass Impact and was on an episode of Replay), Joel Edgerton, Simone Kessell, Rupert Pal, Benny Safdie, Sung Kang, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Bonnie Piesse, and Indira Varma. You’ll be able to see the official announcement picture beneath:
We have no story specifics but, but it surely’s protected to imagine Obi-Wan will spend a big period of time on Tatooine, the place we see him defending Luke Skywalker from afar in Star Wars: A New Hope. Some hypothesis believes Obi-Wan by no means leaves this planet, and that the whole present will happen on it, however I would prefer to assume he’ll discover threats that take him off world to completely different places. Whether it is simply on Tatooine, seeing Darth Vader return right here will likely be mighty fascinating.
No launch date or additional particulars got, but it surely will not have the whole Star Wars highlight. A 3rd season of The Mandalorian is on the way in which, and we’re additionally getting first seasons of The Ebook of Boba Fett, The Dangerous Batch, Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, A Droid Story, The Acolyte, Lando, and Andor.
