Star Wars series has been in the force since 1970 when its original trilogy debuted and made its way on to the greatest 70s and space opera films ever. The original trilogy brought the prequel trilogy 20 years later in the 90s where we all were born and the decade was named the golden period of our generation. Both these trilogies gave birth to multiple animated projects that included shows and films.
With enough animated shows and shorts on the table, the Star Wars series never stopped growing as it introduced 3 spinoff films separate from the original timeline titled Star Wars The Clone Wars, Rogue One A Star Wars Story, and Solo A Star Wars Story. The series was now converted into a franchise as they had all under their resume. Films, animated films, animated shorts, animated shows, and toys.
The only thing that was missing was live-action shows but they were far from being developed as the franchise was busy developing and working on the sequel trilogy that would mark the end of the main Skywalker storyline. The sequel trilogy came out in the 2010s shattering all box office records and expectations.
The Star Wars series concluded its main Skywalker storyline in 2019 and announced its very first live-action tv show titled The Mandalorian that debuted in 2019 and was a mega-hit earning more praise than the sequel trilogy itself. This praise and appreciation motivated Star Wars to develop multiple live-action shows along with more seasons of The Mandalorian.
Star Wars announced shows like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ashoka, and many more to fill up the mixed reviews that the sequel trilogy brought in. Now a word just came in from LucasFilm announcing the entire cast of the Obi-Wan Kenobi show.
The cast of the show follows Ewan Mcgregor as the titular character, Hayden Christensen as his archenemy, Indira Varma, Sung Kang, Joel Edgerton, Kumail Nanjiani, and O Shea Jackon Jr. in undisclosed roles. Filming is expected to begin in April with the show to hit Disney+ next year.
