OBI-WAN KENOBI Disney+ Series Adds GAME OF THRONES & LUTHER Actress Indira Varma
Some more casting news for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series here, as Game of Thrones and Luther star Indira Varma is set to join Ewan McGregor in the Star Wars show in an undisclosed role...
Indira Varma (Game of Thrones, Luther, For Life) has joined the cast of the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, which is reportedly scheduled to commence production this spring.
Varma's character is being kept under wraps (of course), but we're sure you guys will have plenty of guesses.
Specific plot details are also being withheld, but we do know that Obi-Wan will be set between the events of Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, and that Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader for a confrontation with his old master. There are also rumors that younger versions of both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa will appear, but that's yet to be confirmed.
Ewan McGregor will reprise the role of the legendary Jedi.
The Mandalorian director Deborah Chow is set to helm all episodes of the series, with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy on board as producer along-with Chow, Jason D. McGatlin (The Rise of Skywalker), Tracey Seaward (The Queen), and John Swartz (Rogue One).
Varma has appeared in numerous film and TV projects over the course of her career, but is arguably best known for her ferocious turn as Ellaria Sand in HBO's Game of Thrones.
No premiere for Obi-Wan Kenobi has been set, but it's expected to hit Disney+ at some point in 2022.
