Disney+ is preparing to do another Star Wars project after the hit series The Mandalorian. The anticipated production will focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi, the beloved character in the Star Wars franchise.
The prequel series, announced as Obi-Wan Kenobi, will share the universe with The Mandalorian. The expected project will take place in a time frame between the modern trilogy and the classic trilogy. Star Wars fans will be watching with interest and the production will soon come to Disney+. While there is currently very limited information about the series; Today, the production company made an important announcement.
The cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan, the popular character in the Star Wars universe, will soon appear with his first solo story. The post, posted on Star Wars’ Twitter account, officially announced the show’s eye-catching cast. The list, which includes previous cast members such as Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, is as follows:
The highly anticipated series will star Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Oshea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessel and Benny Safdie. It remains unclear when the show will hit screens. However, the fact that the cast has been announced indicates that new announcements will come soon.
Disney+ is growing
The Disney+ platform, which launched in 2019, continues to grow rapidly. The company announced last August that it had 57.5 million subscribers, almost doubling that number in six months. Although quarantine has a significant impact on this, the main reason is the content on the platform. Specials such as WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier manage to attract viewers.
Netflix, Disney+’s biggest competitor, has 200 million subscribers. However, the gap is narrowing day by day.
