“Kenobi” Series Seeks Young Luke Skywalker

Kenobi Series Seeks Young Luke Skywalker

A casting rumor has popped up indicating that an actor is being sought to play a young Luke Skywalker for the still untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series currently in development at Disney+.

Ewan McGregor reprises his role as the titular Jedi Master in the series which takes place eight years after the events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” suggesting the actor they choose will be playing Luke at around eight years old.

LRM Online broke the news and Slashfilm later confirmed it, though it’s not clear how major a role the young Luke will play in the series.

Deborah Chow will helm the six-episode series which has been penned by Hossein Amini and will begin production in 2020.
