OBI-WAN KENOBI: Full Cast Announcement Includes Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr., And More

Lucasfilm has revealed the full cast for Obi-Wan Kenobi, and there are some huge names who are either making their Star Wars debuts or returning to a Galaxy Far, Far Away. Check it out here...

Well, this is a pleasant surprise! With production finally about to start on Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi event series, the full cast has been officially announced by Lucasfilm. 

As is so often the case, we don't know who everyone is playing, but there's plenty to talk about here, including the return of Joel Edgerton to the Star Wars franchise; he played Owen Lars as a relative newcomer in 2005's Revenge of the Sith, and we'll likely learn more about why he didn't have much love for Ben Kenobi by the time A New Hope rolled around. Bonnie Piesse, meanwhile, also returns after playing Beru in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith

Hayden Christensen's reprising the role of Darth Vader was announced during Disney's Investor Day last year, while Game of Thrones alum Indira Varma is now officially part of the cast.

Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani is a noteworthy addition, as are Rupert Friend (Homeland) and O'Shea Jackason Jr. (Straight Outta Compton). Everyone here is extremely talented, though, and this is an exciting cast. Let the speculation about who they're all playing in Obi-Wan Kenobi officially begin!

A brief synopsis has also been released: "The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader."
