Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Reportedly Casting Young Luke Skywalker

Rumor has it that Ewan McGregor’s upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series will feature a young Luke Skywalker.

Disney Plus’ crown-jewel The Mandalorian has completed its first season, which means we can now pivot our eyes to one of the next Star Wars series making its way to the streaming service: Ewan McGregor’s untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series. According to scooper Daniel Richtman, Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series is currently casting a young Luke Skywalker.

There’s currently no indication as to the age of this younger Luke Skywalker, but we’re reckoning it’s someone in their early tweens so they can actually interact with Obi-Wan Kenobi. It has beens said that the Ewan McGregor series will take place eight years after Revenge of the Sith, so Luke Skywalker would be entering his tweens. This would make it a pretty obvious parallel to Anakin Skywalker’s age in The Phantom Menace, but once again, this is just a rumor.

Beyond just the age of Luke Skywalker, it begs the question what their capacity would be in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? A New Hope made it obvious that Luke Skywalker was more than aware of Obi-Wan Kenobi and his exploits, but it didn’t give us anything specific. Would this young Luke Skywalker merely be making a cameo in the Ewan McGregor series? Or are they getting a co-star billing in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? And if Luke Skywalker is in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, does that mean Leia Skywalker might make an appearance as well? This brand new piece of casting information has certainly made the Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series all the more interesting.

What are your thoughts on a young Luke Skywalker being cast in Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Let us know in the comments!

Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series featuring Ewan McGregor will be the Mouse House’s third live-action Star Wars series for Disney Plus. It will be directed by Deborah Chow and written by Hossein Amini. As always, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy will be producing.
