OBI-WAN KENOBI Star Sung Kang Talks About Seeing Darth Vader And Jedis While Working On The Series

F9: The Fast Saga star Sung Kang is believed to be playing a Sith Inquisitor in Obi-Wan Kenobi, and talks here about seeing Darth Vader and "Jedis" walking around the set to the Disney+ series...

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series coming to Disney+ might be one of the most highly anticipated TV shows heading our way from Lucasfilm, and it's going to feature one heck of a cast. 

Among the impressive ensemble is F9: The Fast Saga star Sung Kang, and over the weekend, it was reported that he's set to play Sith Inquisitor The Fifth Brother (who debuted in Star Wars Rebels). During a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes, the actor shared his excitement for Obi-Wan Kenobi and talked about seeing Darth Vader and "Jedis" walking around on the show's set. 

"The feeling that I get on set is every single crew member, you look in their eyes, and it’s like a kid going ‘I grew up watching Star Wars. Like, this is my dream to be here, to see one of the Star Wars characters, or the Darth Vader character or, you know, one of the Jedis walking around," Kang explained.

"No matter how old they are, it’s guys that do my makeup and stuff, and people who do the costumes, and all the set designers. There’s this feeling of legacy and it’s like everyone talks about history and why they feel so blessed to be here. there’s this history, there’s this kind of shared spirit and this passion of the connective tissue is all these Star Wars characters."

Reading between the lines here, it certainly feels like Kang's comments can be taken as confirmation that he shares scenes with the Sith Lord played Hayden Christensen. There have been rumours that some of the series will revolve around Vader and his Inquisitors hunting down the remaining Jedi, something that makes perfect sense given when Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place in the timeline.
