screenrant.com Every Actor's Character Confirmed By Obi-Wan Kenobi's Trailer

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s first official trailer has finally confirmed the characters of several cast members, including a few figures who have previously appeared inStar Wars. A long-awaited project fromStar Wars,Obi-Wan Kenobi's timeline covers the gap in the character's journey 10 years afterStar Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and about 9 years before his death in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Premiering 17 years afterRevenge of the Sith, Disney+’sObi-Wan Kenobi features the return of several cast members reprising their roles fromEpisode III, plus new live-action appearances of characters that have previously only been animated.

Ewan McGregor reprises his title role asObi-Wan Kenobi in the new series, having last been seen inRevenge of the Sith, where he played a younger version of the character that Alec Guinness originated inA New Hope. The return of McGregor also came with the announcement that prequel trilogy Anakin Skywalker actor Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader, a version of the character he only briefly played at the end ofRevenge of the Sith. Alongside McGregor and Christensen areStar Wars prequel trilogy actors Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who are reprising their roles inObi-Wan Kenobi as Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen Lars and Aunt Beru, respectively.

Disney already confirmed the major returningStar Wars cast members and characters, but the new clip finally reveals which characters will be played by several new actors. However,Obi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer primarily reveals the characters of the upcoming show’s villains, which leaves the characters of cast members like O’Shea Jackson Jr., Maya Erskine, Kumail Nanjiani, and Benny Safdie still unknown. Additionally,Obi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer reveals 10-year-old Luke Skywalker, but it’s still unclear who is portraying the young Tatooine resident. SinceObi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer breakdown also confirms the title Jedi will temporarily leave Tatooine, many are anxious to see if a 10-year-old Leia Organa will appear as well. While there are still many unknown roles played by the announced cast, here’s a breakdown of every new character and their actors confirmed inObi-Wan Kenobi’s first teaser trailer.

Rupert Friend As The Grand Inquisitor

Although Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader is inevitably the big bad ofObi-Wan Kenobi’s series, another significant villain will be portrayed by accomplished English actor Rupert Friend. Friend will star inObi-Wan Kenobi as the Grand Inquisitor, the deputy of Darth Vader in the Imperial Forces. Although his background is still largely a mystery, the Grand Inquisitor was previously featured in the animatedStar Wars Rebels series, where he became notable as one of the cruelest Inquisitors inStar Wars canon.

Previously voiced by Jason Isaacs inRebels, Rupert Friend will need to come to the table with an equally menacing tone for the highest-ranking Imperial Inquisitor. Rupert Friend’sObi-Wan Kenobi Grand Inquisitor is tasked with leading the hunt for Jedi after Order 66, meaning Ewan McGregor’s Master Kenobi will be a prime target if discovered. Notable for his roles inHomeland,Pride & Prejudice, andThe Young Victoria, the Grand Inquisitor inObi-Wan Kenobi is Friend’s first dive into a major franchise, not to mention one in which he plays an important villain.

Moses Ingram As Reva/Third Sister

One of the most heavily-featured actors inObi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer outside of McGregor is Moses Ingram, who is now confirmed to play the new character Reva in the upcoming series. Ingram's new character, the Inquisitor Reva, was described byEntertainment Weekly as “ruthlessly ambitious” and a “formidable new foe,” suggesting she may be more trouble to Obi-Wan than Rupert Friend’s Grand Inquisitor. As a new Inquisitor character, Reva’sStar Wars background is largely unknown, but Ingram’s emphasis on her ambition suggests her Jedi-hunting has made her a notorious villain, perhaps hoping to take over the role of the Grand Inquisitor herself.

It’s theorized that she’ll also have the ear of Darth Vader considering theStar Wars custom she breaks by actually having a name; every Inquisitor in the past is numbered and simply referred to as “Brother” or “Sister,” meaning the character must have considerable influence. Donning the notable red lightsaber of the Sith inObi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer, Ingram’s Third Sister seemingly has the most important task of searching for Obi-Wan, who is arguably the Empire’s most significant Jedi threat alongside Master Yoda. Since Ingram rose to fame as the fan-favorite character Jolene in Netflix’sThe Queen’s Gambit and Lady Macduff in Joel Coen’sThe Tragedy of Macbeth, audiences will be introduced to a new side of Ingram’s talents as she plays one of the most significant antagonists for the beloved Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Sung Kang As Fifth Brother

Unlike Moses Ingram’s confirmedObi-Wan Kenobi character name, Sung Kang’s Inquisitor is so far only known under his Fifth Brother title. However, Kang’sObi-Wan Kenobi character is a well-known, popular Inquisitor who previously appeared in animated form forStar Wars Rebels, as voiced by Philip Anthony-Rodriguez. Taking over the live-action role, Kang appears inObi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer as the menacing Fifth Brother leads a group of stormtroopers down the streets of what appears to be eitherStar Wars’ planet Coruscant or Daiyu. Sung Kang, better known for his role as Han Lue in theFast & Furious franchise, was long-rumored to portray the Fifth Brother Inquisitor onObi-Wan Kenobi once his casting was announced, so many are satisfied that the trailer finally confirmed the actor’s highly-anticipated role.

Indira Varma As Imperial Officer

TheGame of Thrones actress joins her former co-star Pedro Pascal in the world of Disney’sStar Wars, though the two won’t appear on-screen together. After much speculation of who Indira Varma would portray inObi-Wan Kenobi, the first teaser trailer has now confirmed the Ellaria Sand actress to play an important Imperial Officer under the command of Darth Vader.Obi-Wan Kenobi’s trailer shows her menacingly departing an Imperial ship in her gray uniform with a blaster in hand, though the significance of her character is still unknown. The name of Varma’sObi-Wan Kenobi character is still officially unconfirmed, but IMDb lists the actress’s role as Tia. Nonetheless, it appears she’ll play an integral role in keeping the galaxy and hidden Jedi in check alongside the Inquisitors.
