Obi-Wan Kenobi is expected to start filming late this spring in Los Angeles. Apart from McGregor and Christensen, who will reprise their roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader, only Indira Varma’s casting has been announced so far. But no other details have been revealed so far on what character she will be portraying in the series.
Disney and Lucasfilm are trying to keep the details on Obi-Wan Kenobi under wraps as significant leaks are often overwhelming when they are not leaked, so that is probably one of the reasons they are keeping all the details associated with Obi-Wan Kenobi a secret as of now.
The casting of Indira Varma in this new series has been a surprise for the Star Wars fans as she has never appeared in any Star Wars shows in the past, so it will be exciting to see what kind of roles she portrays in this upcoming series.
As of now, the release date of Obi-Wan Kenobi is yet to be announced, but as more new updates on the new cast inclusion, character details, or trailer of this upcoming series are revealed, we will give you an update on those as well. Till then, stay tuned to MediaScrolls.
