The latest episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi is available on Disney+, and it brought two big cameos.
The first is from Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), and even if it was only in the hologram, it is an important dialogue with Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) about the hunt for the protagonist.
During the Star Wars Celebration a few days ago, McDiarmid even tried to throw it off, but many fans already expected to see him at some point.
The second entry is none other than Qui-Gon Jinn! That’s right, Liam Neeson has returned as Master of Obi-Wan, who is now a Force Phantom.
In the emotional reunion, Qui-Gon explains that he was always by his former apprentice’s side, but needed to let him find his own way, as he was not yet ready to see him due to the guilt he carried.
According to Making Star Wars, the second season is in development. Apparently, the platform was very satisfied with the performance of the series, and so it gave the green light for new episodes.
The site adds that some adjustments were made to the first season to allow for more exploration into the character’s story.
Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place ten years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sithbringing the reunion between Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader.
Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are back in their classic roles in the franchise.
The main cast also brings Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Bonnie Piesse (The Vow), Kumail Nanjiani (Eternal), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Rupert Friend (Hitman: Agent 47), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Lair of Thieves), Sung Kang (Fast and Furious 3), Simone Kessell (Reckoning) and Benny Safdie (Good behavior).
