    The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader.

    Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and writer Joby Harold. Casting director is Carmen Cuba.

  • Kathleen Kennedy being an EP gives me concern, hopefully it's one of those "EP in name only" gigs.

    You do know she's an EP on The Mandalorian, right? She's the president of Lucasfilm. Of course she's an EP on it.

    I'm not saying she's not to blame at all, but blaming her for everything wrong that's happened with Star Wars for the last 7 years is just plain dumb without giving her SOME credit for their successes. She could've not hired Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. And a lot of people think Rogue One is the best Star Wars film since Empire.

    Early last year, a rumor surfaced that Jar Jar Binks, notorious Gungan military commander and politician and arguably the most hated character in Star Wars, would be making his illustrious return to the galaxy far, far away in the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series. Jar Jar, after all, was instrumental in the fall of the Republic and was a frequent companion of Obi-Wan and co. throughout the prequels. But contrary to reports of Jar Jar’s return, and rumors that a new bushy beard that would accompany him, it seems that the Gungan will not be making an appearance in Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi.


    Actor Ahmed Best, who portrayed Jar Jar Binks throughout the Star Wars prequel films, confirmed that he will not make an appearance in the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

    “Thanks for the love, but I will not be in this series,” Best said. “As much as I would’ve loved to be a part of it. But I’m ecstatic to see folks who I love dearly back together doing great things.”

    Yes, I'm aware. I keep hoping rumors of her getting the boot turn out to be true, but.......

    As long as she stays out of the creative side of things I could care less how she shows up in the credits.
