It seems as though Ewan McGregor might be making an appearance as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the upcoming Andor Star Wars series.
This news comes to us from The Illuminerdi who tend to be pretty much spot on with their exclusives.
Now, they’re claiming that Kenobi will make more than one appearance in the series, which is a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The series will star Diego Luna who’s reprising his role as Cassian Andor which he played in the Star Wars spinoff movie.
It’s interesting that Kenobi will be turning up in more than one episode of the show, and will reportedly more than just a passing cameo.
Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi will reportedly be in the Cassian Andor Star Wars series on Disney Plus
Here’s what The Illuminerdi had to say on Kenobi appearing in the Andor Star Wars series:
The Illuminerdi can exclusively report that Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a reoccurring role in Andor. The fact that Obi-Wan will have a sizeable role in Andor shows that Lucasfilm is making an effort to connect all of its Disney+ series. Obi-Wan had a close relationship with Senator Bail Organa, so maybe he will be a key contributor of intel for the growing rebellion. Will the Andor storyline correlate at all with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Time will tell.
So, it seems as though Obi-Wan Kenobi will still be in touch with Senator Bail Organa even though he’s meant to be in hiding from the Empire. I mean, he is one of the only Jedi left after Order 66.
It’ll be interesting to see how his appearances in Andor will tie-in with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series which McGregor will star in.
