It’s truly an exciting time to be a “Star Wars” fan because not only is the “Star Wars Celebration” going on over in Anaheim, CA but we also just received the teaser trailer for the series coming after this one with “Star Wars: Andor”. We’re not at the celebration sadly, but we are planning on waking up as early as possible to see the first two episodes of “Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi” which is now streaming at the time of this post going live on the Disney+ streaming service. If you’ve not seen the Official Trailer yet you can do that by clicking HERE.
The Premise: The series begins with Obi-Wan Kenobi watching over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and takes the character on a “rollicking adventure”.
The Cast and Characters:
Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi
Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker
Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars
Bonnie Piesse as Beru Whitesun Lars
Rupert Friend as The Grand Inquisitor
Moses Ingram as Reva Sevander/The Third Sister
Sung Kang as Fifth Brother
Indira Varma as an Imperial officer
Grant Feely as Luke Skywalker
Kumail Nanjiani as Haja
O’Shea Jackson Jr. as undisclosed
Simone Kessell as undisclosed
Benny Safdie as undisclosed
Maya Erskine as undisclosed

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m looking forward to this series as it continues to build upon the mythology of the Star Wars universe and that’s always all right by me. My only issue is with the series running for only six episodes. It doesn’t feel like enough to me. When “Moon Knight” finished I felt the same way and while they could use another two episodes max, I don’t want them to take the Netflix route and do thirteen episodes. Anyway, I will wrap this one up and ask what you out there in the readership think about the news. Will you be tuning in straight away? Chime in down below if you have something topical to add to the mix. I will see you next time around. Stay safe out there and use The Force when you need it (just not for the bad stuff).
