We keep talking about rumors of the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series, one of the next live action projects in the Star Wars universe, whose premiere will take place in 2022 on the Disney + streaming platform.
These days we have heard the rumor that they place Sung Kang as the Fifth Brother and Vivien Lyra Blair as a young Leia. All around those rumors that point to the presence of several Inquisitors in the series, who would go in search of the Jedi master. Now two well-known characters in the franchise are singled out.
From the LRM Online media they point out that both R2-D2 and C3PO will return to the series, although it does not know what importance they would have within the events.
At the end of Episode III, R2-D2 and C-3P0 were delivered to Bail Organa. Bail asked for C-3P0’s mind to be cleared, but not R2-D2’s. In the movie “Rogue One,” we see them again when Rogue walks away from the Rebel hangar, indicating that Bail gave them to Princess Leia or the Rebel Alliance. Both ended up on Tatooine when they fled after the invasion of the Tantive IV, separating in the desert, but both were kidnapped by the Jawas and later sold to Luke Skywalker.
Given that the series is located ten years after “Episode III – Revenge of the Sith”, and therefore 9 years away from what was seen in “Episode IV – A new Hope”, seeing R2-D2 again and to C3PO, they must be serving the Rebel Alliance and / or alongside Leia.
The series has been filming in the greatest of secrets since late March / early April, with no official release date announced. Nor have they wanted to offer many more details of the series, although it is confirmed that we will have the returns of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker.
Other cast names include Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars, Bonnie Piesse as Beru Lars, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine.
