    The second stop in the Obi-Wan Kenobi press tour, after Berlin, was London. There, the three lead actors (Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, and Moses Ingram), as well as series director Deborah Chow, talked to some media members about their experience working on the new Disney Plus series.



    Moses Ingram, for instance, could not emphasize enough how ruthless her character Reva is:



    We've already seen in the trailers that Reva makes good use of her lightsaber and Ingram definitely had a lot of fun with it, as she said:



    About working with Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor, Ingram said:

    Ewan McGregor shared a funny story about how, months before production began on Obi-Wan Kenobi, he was part of a chemistry test with another actor in the series. This happened on the set of The Mandalorian when that team was on their day off, and McGregor, while reading his lines, didn't have the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi in him yet, and his voice didn't sound like it used to. Here's the story:



    McGregor never explained whose part was it that they were testing, but if we had to take an educated guess, it would probably be Kumail Nanjiani's. Nanjiani said last year in an interview that he was an ally to Obi-Wan, and he had an extensive role in the series. That would also make him one of the few major actors Obi-Wan interacts with during the series that had not been cast yet (both Hayden Christensen and Joel Edgerton were coming back to their roles from the prequels). Nanjiani made a quick appearance in the most recent trailer, wearing what looks like Jedi robes. We still don't know much about this character.

    Hayden Christensen also expressed his enthusiasm about coming back to the Star Wars franchise after many years, and how returning to be hand-in-hand with his lifelong friend Ewan McGregor made it feel extra special. He said:



    About putting the Darth Vader suit back on, he said:

    Disney Plus U.K. has also distributed a bunch of images from the event, check them out:

    The Obi-Wan Kenobi press tour probably has a few more stops in Europe before they make the jump to the U.S. They will also be at Star Wars Celebration on Thursday, May 26th. It will be the day before the first two episodes premiere on Disney Plus.



    Update!



    More videos and pictures have come out from the team's visit to London. Check them out below:
