OBI-WAN KENOBI: Full Cast Announcement Includes Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr., And More

Well, this is a pleasant surprise! With production finally about to start on Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi event series, the full cast has been officially announced by Lucasfilm. As is so often the case, we don't know who everyone is playing, but there's plenty to talk about here, including the return of Joel Edgerton to the Star Wars franchise; he played Owen Lars as a relative newcomer in 2005's Revenge of the Sith, and we'll likely learn more about why he didn't have much love for Ben Kenobi by the time A New Hope rolled around. Bonnie Piesse, meanwhile, also returns after playing Beru in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
