The series has got an iconic cast that will blow you away. In this series, Hayden Christensen returns to play the role of the infamous Darth Vader. The cast is also joined by Joel Edgerton, an actor who needs no introduction, who has played many iconic roles. Also, valuable additions to the cast are Moses Ingram (Jolene from “The Queen’s Gambit”), Kumail Nanjiani (from “The Big Sick”), Indira Varma (Kiran from “Bride and Prejudice”), Sung Kang (from the Fast and Furious franchise), along with talented Bonnie Piesse, Rupert Friend, Benny Safdie, and Simone Kessell.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” has a great production team behind it, with executive producers such as Kathleen Kennedy (Eight-time Academy Award-nominated, known for films such as “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), Deborah Chow, Michelle Rejwan (Associate Producer for the show “Super 8”), Joby Harold (Executive Producer for the film “Edge of Tomorrow”) and Ewan McGregor.
Disney has mostly kept its lips sealed regarding “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, all we know is that the limited series starts ten years after the drastic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith”, where Obi-Wan Kenobi suffered a horrendous defeat and betrayal by hands of his once-loyal companion and Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker, who turned to towards the dark side by becoming the nefarious Sith Lord Darth Vader.
