This is the news you’re looking for.

In a double dose of Monday morning announcements, Lucasfilm has shared two exciting updates on the upcoming Disney+ special event series Obi-Wan Kenobi. First and foremost, the series is finally due to begin shooting in April.

Fans have already known that Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi Master from the prequel trilogy, and he will be joined by Hayden Christensen as the latter returns to once again don the mask of Darth Vader. However, the full cast list for the series has now officially been confirmed.


Additional cast members include Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie. The confirmation of both Edgerton and Piesse, who were last seen in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, marks the return of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is to be directed by The Mandalorian‘s Deborah Chow, will take place 10 years after the dramatic and unforgettable events that took place in Revenge of the Sith, in which Anakin Skywalker turned to the dark side.

The series is executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and writer Joby Harold.

Stay tuned for more news on Obi-Wan Kenobi!
