We have been hearing some incoming chatter coming across our various Imperial spies around the Outer Rim. Normally we would not disseminate this information to the denizens of the New Republic because we are unsure of the accuracy of the transmissions. However, we want to make sure that all information is on the table, so that you are not caught unaware in the galactic wilds! Remember to take everything below with a nice big helping of salt!
WARNING! If the rumor below turns out to be true, it will be a huge SPOILER for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Proceed with caution!
A recent discovery of a newspaper article from September of last year has people starting to think that a certain evil Star Wars characters might be making an appearance in the upcoming Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series. While talking with the Metro News’ Hugh Montgomery about his (then) new one man show Lemon Table, Ian McDiarmid shared a few tidbits about his time as Emperor Palpatine and shared that you never know where he will pop up…
“I think I have to accept that, thanks to my ungrateful granddaughter, my annihilation was finally final. [But] of course [Darth] Vader is back in the new [Obi-Wan Kenobi] television series so I suppose it’s not impossible that one day his mentor might be discovered once again skulking in the shadows.”
If this rumor is true, does it make you any more excited for the upcoming series, or are you max excited already? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below…
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side and became the evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor, and Joby Harold.
