Seeing as it is Star Wars Day, it was only inevitable Disney would treat fans with some brand new content today.

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. During 2020’s Disney Investor Day, 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. As you can tell by the trailer Joel Edgarton will reprise his role as Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen in the series. Jimmy Smits and Bonnie Piesse will appear in their original roles from the franchise too.
Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit) And Rupert Friend (Homeland) lead the remaining supporting cast as the franchise’s first live-action Inquisitors. Friend appears to playing The Grand Inquisitor in the series.
The rest of the cast consists of Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Sung Kang (Fast and Furious franchise), Simone Kessell (Terra Nova), Benny Safdie (Pieces of a Woman), and Maya Erskine (Pen15).
