First Official Images From Disney’s ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Series Surface
After years of waiting – and less than two months until the series finally hits Disney+ – we finally have our official first look at the upcoming Star Wars spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Wednesday morning, Entertainment Weekly shared several exclusive stills from the series that not only show Ewan McGregor reprising his role as the iconic Jedi, but that also teased Joel Edgerton’s return as Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen. Additionally, the photos reveal Moses Ingram’s role as an antagonistic Inquisitor in the series named Reva.

Set to take place decades between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope plot details are currently being kept close to the vest. One thing is certain though. At Disney Investor Day this past December, Kathleen Kennedy promised “the rematch of the century” between Kenobi and Vader.
Deborah Chow, who helmed several episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian, will both produce and direct the entire 6-episode series.
In addition to having Ewan McGregor reprise his role as the titular Jedi for the series, Hayden Christensen will return to play Darth Vader too. In addition to Joel Edgarton, Jimmy Smits and Bonnie Piesse will appear in their original roles from the franchise too.
Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit) leads the remaining supporting cast, consisting of Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Rupert Friend (Homeland), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Sung Kang (Fast and Furious franchise), Simone Kessell (Terra Nova), Benny Safdie (Pieces of a Woman), and Maya Erskine (Pen15).
