Ewan McGregor played Obi-Wan in the prequel trilogy between 1999 and 2005. When the series premieres in 2022, 17 years will have passed since its last appearance. In 50 years, McGregor will be closer to the 62 that Alec Guinness had during his first portrayal of Ben Kenobi in Star Wars, in 1976.
McGregor will reunite with Hayden Christensen, who in the prequels was Anakin (and here he will be, of course, Darth Vader). Will we see him without the helmet in some kind of flashback? Kenobi’s cast includes Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Joel Edgerton, and Bonnie Piesse.
These last two played the young Owen y Beru Lars in Episodes II and III, so it is guaranteed that we will return to the Lars farm on Tatooine, where we will surely see a child Luke Skywalker …
