According to current plans, the first shooting for the new series Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi should begin in March of this year. In addition to Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, Hayden Christensen will also be there, who will once again slip into the role of Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader. Meanwhile, another member of the cast has been determined, which you will see in the finished episodes. That should be of particular interest to the fans of "Game of Thrones" among you.
Because as the magazine Deadline reports, Disney and Lucasfilm were able to win the actress Indira Varma for the project. What role she will slip into is just as little known as much of the story of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi. Varma starred as Ellaria Sand on the HBO series "Game of Thrones". She was also in the series "Rome" (as Niobe) and "For Life" (as Safiya Masry). The British actress also appeared in a number of films such as "Faith Healer" and "The Only True Ivan".
In the next few weeks and months, more details about the Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series are likely to follow, which, by the way, will be shown exclusively on the Disney + streaming service. This applies to the individual roles and their occupation as well as to the basic story of the series. According to initial information, this should be located between the two films Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode 4 – A New Hope, with the conflict between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader playing a major role. There were also rumors of Darth Maul's return as another villain.
