    Finally some official news! The main cast of the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney Plus has been announced via StarWars.com, and among some fantastic and very exciting names, it's finally confirmed that Uncle Owen played by Joel Edgerton, and Aunt Beru played by Bonnie Piesse are back. The article also confirms that the show will kick off principal photography in April.



    As previously announced, Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are back in the roles of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader, respectively. In addition to these, there are eight actors/actresses joining the series in unknown roles for now.



    This piece of news is confirming the casting of Indira Varma in a yet-undisclosed role, as it was reported last month, but it goes beyond that. Comedian, writer and actor Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) is traveling to a galaxy far, far away for his Star Wars debut. He is already in the Disney family as a part of the huge ensemble for the upcoming Marvel movie Eternals.



    Moses Ingram will play a part in the series too. Her resumé in Hollywood is much shorter, but she most recently delivered an outstanding performance in Netflix's limited series The Queen's Gambit. Another surprising addition is that of O'Shea Jackson Jr., who played Ice Cube in F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton, and has enjoyed small parts in various projects since then. Also, Rupert Friend is coming back to TV, a medium in which he played probably his most recognizable characters in Peter Quinn, from Homeland.



    Sung Kang, of Fast & Furious fame, is also officially joining the ensemble. He will next be seen in Justin Lin's Fast 9. Simone Kessell is the last female member of the main cast that was announced today. She has been a part of many TV series in the past decade. Finally, another of the most surprising additions to the series is that of Benny Safdie, one of the Safdie brothers, who helmed Uncut Gems or Good Time, and are currently ready to make a limited series for Showtime called The Curse. Benny Safdie will play a role in that show too.



    Although heavily rumored, the presence of a young Luke Skywalker hasn't been confirmed yet. However, the addition of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru will most certainly fuel a lot of speculation.

    From Disney,



    Deborah Chow, who directed two of the best-reviewed episodes of The Mandalorian season 1, will helm the entire series. Joby Harold wrote the scripts. Even though not officially confirmed by Lucasfilm, it's being reported that Chung-hoon Chung will serve as the cinematographer for the series, and Todd Cherniawsky will be the production designer. Casting director is Carmen Cuba, and executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.



    Obi-Wan Kenobi will debut on Disney Plus in 2022.





    Update!



    Variety has tweeted that they've heard that Moses Ingram will play a major character in the series, although no further details were revealed:

    Loving the cast! Now let's see how they use them. (Also if some of the ideas I had for a Kenobi trilogy are explored in this movie, I'll be both incredibly annoyed and so happy.)

    I didn’t think Owen or Beru were going to show up. This also certainly means Luke

    As Joel and Bonnie are in the cast, Owen and Beru will appear.
    Luke will be nothing but a baby : he was only a fistful years old when Maul came to Tatooine and terminated the story started on Naboo in TPM with Obiwan.

    Will Maul show up ?

    As this supposedly takes place 10 years after ROTS, Luke should be, well, 10 years old. Luke, Leia, and Ezra are all the same age, and when the final Maul vs. Obi-Wan confrontation occurs, Ezra is 17, so Luke would also be 17 at that time.

    I think we should just see occasional shots of Luke in the background drinking a glass of blue milk every time.

    Gut reaction: I see Ingram's headshot up there and think Inquisitor. But I know as much about casting as I do about how to work the ice cream maker in my profile pic, so whatevs.

    In a plot twist, Hayden Christensen will be playing Anakin's twin brother.

    Nah.. that's what everybody will be expecting.

    Nobody will be expecting Anakin to have had a twin brother all along.

    Remember you heard it here first folks!
