Obi-Wan Kenobi: shooting starts in April
The actor had already given the character’s face in the prequel trilogy and here, he will find himself ten years after the events of the Revenge of the Sith chapter. In the last chapter the Jedi master had witnessed his pupil Anakin Skywalker transform into the terrible Darth Vader and now, with this mini event series we will review both, discovering what will happen between them.

The announcement of the filming took place on Twitter on the official Star Wars account and is accompanied by the full cast, including returning characters, but also new names and performers. Among the news, we see Kumal Nanjiani, Indira Varma (already seen in Game of Thrones), and again Moses Ingram, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.
Among the great returns we see Hayden Christensen, who has already played Anakin in the chapters of the prequel and who we will therefore see in his transformation to the dark side of the Force. Joel Edgerton also returns, as well as Owen Lars and Bonnie Piesse, his partner.
