Obi-Wan Kenobi: Who is in the Star Wars cast?

PRINCESS Leia first called upon the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi from a galaxy far, far away decades ago.

Starting in 1999, Ewan took over the role of the figure's original actor, the late Alec Guinness.

Since starring in the franchise's fourth film, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Ewan has reprised the role an additional five times.

Ahead of Obi-Wan Kenobi's release date, the famed actor took the stage at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim to discuss the show.

He told the audience in attendance: "It's been a long journey to make this series."

"We all know what happens at the end of Revenge of the Sith."

Ewan further shared: "So I had to take Obi-Wan from there and bridge the gap between my last work as Obi-Wan to Alex Guiness' in The New Hope."

"We thought the film was going to be a movie at one point and it turned into a series."

Hayden Christensen

Joining Ewan McGregor is his frequent Star Wars co-star, Hayden Christensen.

The last time the two were on screen together for the franchise was for the 2005 movie, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

Along with Ewan, Hayden disclosed his comeback to the franchise to the audience at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.

He disclosed his return as Darth Vader in Disney+'s Obi-Wan and said: "It's been such a thrill to get to come back and continue my journey with the character."

"To get to explore Darth Vader at this point in the timeline has been huge."

Rupert Friend

Making his debut in the Star Wars universe is Homeland star, Rupert Friend.

Rupert portrays one of the show's antagonists, The Grand Inquisitor.

When it comes to his take on playing the villain, the actor told Collider: "I got a strong sense of him from the script and from the animated production."

"It was a real honor actually, getting to inhabit this villain."

Moses Ingram

Queen's Gambit actress Moses Ingram also takes on the role of an antagonist in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Moses portrays the villain Reva Sevander, also known as The Third Sister.

She told Entertainment Weekly of her portrayal of the character: "What was more pertinent to the story is who she is now, working for Vader, being a subordinate of his as a Jedi hunter, and to please him."

"She's there to please him, and who he wants is Obi-Wan."
