Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series looking to cast Young Luke Skywalker. I mean, obviously, right?
Here’s a development that probably shouldn’t shock a single fucking soul. Would you believe it, the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series is looking to cast a young Luke Skywalker. I mean, fuck else is Kenobi doing out there, other than to protect little dude?
It appears we may be seeing a young Luke Skywalker in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The Disney+ Star Wars spin-off is reportedly casting a child version of the classic hero of the original trilogy, as well as featuring the return of a familiar face from Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.
Shortly before the release and subsequent success of The Mandalorian, Disney announced the as-of-yet untitled series, which will have Ewan McGregor reprise his role from the prequels as Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. It will chronicle his adventures in the time between the great Jedi Purge in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith and his own heroic sacrifice to save the budding Rebel Alliance in Star Wars: A New Hope. During this period, the former mentor of Anakin Skywalker lived in exile on the desert world of Tatooine, watching over the young Luke Skywalker as he grew into the man who would one day save the galaxy from the Empire.
According to FandomWire, Luke Skywalker will be shown as a child in the series, which lines up with the time in which the show will be set. In addition, Joel Edgerton will reprise his role as Owen Lars, Anakin’s maternal stepbrother, who raised Luke following the death of his mother, Padme Amidala, and the descent of his father into the evil Darth Vader.
