Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Obi-Wan Kenobi Main Cast Revealed!

IF YOU ARE AVOIDING ALL SPOILER INFORMATION PLEASE CLOSE THIS TAB. THANK YOU

Things are really starting to move along in the Star Wars cinematic universe which I kind of anticipated as we are getting ever closer to next year. Firstly, fans will be looking forward to The Book of Boba Fett TV series on Disney+. But there are also details released now of the Kenobi show including its final cast which everyone is excited about.

Reddit is a great source of information, even spoilers if you’re that way inclined (as I am). But no spoilers here my friends, this information is everywhere so avoid it if you can! Here’s a list of the finalised cast for the Kenobi series which was updated a few days ago:

Everyone is having fun guessing who will be who! What do you think? Here are my guesses based on what I’ve read and what we know of Kenobi’s timeline (Inquisitorius anyone?):

GRAND INQUISITOR – POSSIBLY RUPERT FRIEND

GRAND INQUISITOR VIA STARWARSREBELS DOT COM
VIA STARWARSREBELS DOT COM

INDIRA VARMA AS SEVENTH SISTER, SUNG KANG AS FIFTH BROTHER (NOT SURE ABOUT EIGHTH BROTHER)

Also, people are saying Moses Ingram will play a young Ahsoka Tano, Kumail Nunjiani as the voice of a droid (not sure which one though) and obviously Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen played by the same actors which are awesome. As for the other actors, not too sure, we’ll just have to wait and see!

Let me know what you think of my choices and ideas for the Kenobi cast! I look forward to your discussion.

Catch you in my next post – stay safe out there 😁😀

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Hayden Christensen Slated to Return as Anakin Skywalker in Ahsoka TV Series!!

This is big news for any Star Wars fans that are also fans of Hayden Christensen. It has been announced (by many legitimate websites including EW dot com) that Hayden Christensen will not only be reprising his role of Darth Vader in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, but he will be returning as Anakin Skywalker in the Ahsoka series as well!

While this does not really surprise me, it is amazing news! The fandom hasn’t always been so supportive of Hayden Christensen so it’s awesome to finally see things coming full-circle for him in the Star Wars universe.

Here is a snippet from the article for you to read:

Hayden Christensen is heading back to a galaxy far, far away — but a little earlier than expected.

The actor is set to reprise his Star Wars role as Anakin Skywalker in the upcoming Disney+ series Ahsoka, which will follow Anakin’s former apprentice Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson. Christensen previously played Anakin in 2002’s Attack of the Clones and 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, the latter two entries of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news Friday, and Dawson appeared to confirm it on Saturday in a now-deleted Instagram post, writing, “Skyguy, …They know!!! See you soon, Snips,” a reference to Anakin and Ahsoka’s nicknames for each other in the animated Clone Wars series.

The link to the article is here.

What do you think of this news? Let me know in the comments, friends, and we’ll have a little discussion about it!

Hayden Christensen’s Response to Disney’s Announcement of His Return to Star Wars

I’ve been wondering about Hayden’s reaction to the news that was released by Disney at the Investor’s Meeting on Thursday and thankfully, Hayden was quoted directly from this article on Star Wars dot Com:

Last August at D23 Expo, Lucasfilm announced the return of Ewan McGregor in the iconic role of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi for a special event series on Disney+. Officially titled Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where he faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. The series is directed by Deborah Chow, who helmed memorable episodes of The Mandalorian Season 1.

This will truly be a day long remembered, as it was confirmed that Hayden Christensen will be returning as Darth Vader. “This will be the rematch of the century,” Kennedy said.

“It was such an incredible journey playing Anakin Skywalker,” said Christensen. “Of course, Anakin and Obi-Wan weren’t on the greatest of terms when we last saw them… It will be interesting to see what an amazing director like Deborah Chow has in store for us all. I’m excited to work with Ewan again. It feels good to be back.”

Via Star Wars dot Com

So there we have it – Hayden is feeling good to be back, which is amazing to hear. Frankly, I am not surprised to hear this from Hayden. Considering his relationship with the Star Wars fandom, one would almost expect him to turn down the role, especially since there was so much division in the fandom over his portrayal of Anakin Skywalker at the time. It just goes to show that Hayden has what it takes to be a professional in this business, putting past events behind him and focusing on the brilliant Disney Plus series to come. I have no doubt he will be superb and will just amaze everyone!

Let me know what your thoughts are on Hayden’s return as the iconic Darth Vader in the comments!

Stay safe out there everyone, wear your masks, be kind to each other and I’ll catch you tomorrow!

Hayden Christensen Might Be Reprising His Role as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader

RUMOURED

So I’ve learned my lesson well from getting excited about rumours that turned out not to be true at all. And as a result of that, I’ve taken my grain of salt with this one too, even though several reputable websites such as Screen Rant has reported this might be an actual thing.

Until Disney release an official update about this, it’s a rumour and nothing more but one that’s got the Star Wars fandom in an uproar. The reason I suspect this is hitting fans quite hard is that many Star Wars fans actually despised Hayden Christensen’s portrayal of Anakin and then Darth Vader.

Let me get this clear right now though, I am NOT one of those people. I respect what Hayden did with the role and I feel bad for him taking so much crap from the Star Wars fans back then. In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if he gave Disney the middle finger for everything the fans put him through.

On a positive note though, if you are one of those fans that dislikes what Hayden did with the role, you are safe to have your opinion on my blog in the comments. I will never stop anyone from having their own opinion as long as it remains civil and respectful.

This rumour has been going around for some time now, but just recently, it was doing the rounds online a few days back and I wanted to give it some time to breathe before I posted about it here.

I am SO EXCITED if this is more than rumour and I am totally behind whatever they choose to do with Anakin and Hayden. I welcome it with open arms.

So what do you think about this rumour? Are you for it or against? Let me know what you think in the comments, fam!

Stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch ya tomorrow as always 🙂
