“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” the new Disney+ special event series starring Ewan McGregor as the iconic Jedi Master, will begin shooting in April and I for one am extremely excited. Ever since the announcement of this show, I have been eagerly awaiting for more information. With this incredible cast announcement for Obi-Wan Kenobi, I am even more hyped.
The fact that Hayden Christensen will return in the role of Darth Vader is beyond exciting for me. I do love a good villain, and Darth Vader is one of the best. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
