Star Wars fans whose only hope is a new Disney+ series will rejoice to learn that Obi-Wan Kenobi is expected to begin shooting in April. Ewan McGregor will return as the Jedi Master in the series, which is set 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when Kenobi’s apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, turned into the iconic mouth breather Darth Vader. Other actors returning to the universe far, far away include Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who played Luke Skywalker’s adoptive parents in 2002’s Attack of the Clones, as well as Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin/Darth Vader in the later installments of the prequel trilogy. Deborah Chow, who directed several episodes of The Mandalorian‘s first season, will serve as the showrunner. [Star Wars, Vanity Fair]
