Actor Sung Kang let slip a big detail about his character in the upcoming Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” while sharing a story about his childhood adoration for the “Star Wars” franchise.
Not a costume anymore: In an interview with Screen Rant, Kang, 49, said he dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader almost every day from the ages of 8 to 13. He also reminisced on how he and his friends would play pretend with lightsabers made out of cardboard toilet paper tubes.
Maya Erskine, star and co-creator of the comedy series “PEN15,” was revealed to have a supporting role in the upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series on Disney+.
Disney+ has confirmed that Korean American “Fast & Furious” star Sung Kang will appear in “Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
The Star Wars miniseries will feature a star-studded cast, including Kumail Nanjiani of “Eternals” and Indira Varma of “Game of Thrones.”
While Kelly Marie Tran has not made a social media comeback, the Vietnamese American star has already moved past the backlash she had received for her casting in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
Tran, who played Rose Tico, faced vitriol from toxic fans for being “the most useless character” in the film, which also received criticism for “forcing diversity” and a petition to be deleted from the franchise.
Jessica Henwick, who starred in Netflix’s “Iron Fist,” went through a grueling six months of auditioning and almost played Rey in the latest “Star Wars” trilogy.
The 27-year-old “Game of Thrones” alum told reporters that she spent six months auditioning for the role of Rey in “Star Wars” which eventually went to actress Daisy Ridley.
“Star Wars” fans were left disappointed and outraged over the treatment of Kelly Marie Tran’s character, Rose Tico, in the new “Star Wars” film, “The Rise of Skywalker”.
Among those unsatisfied with Tran’s lack of screen time was “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu, who tweeted on Thursday night, “Ok @disneyplus . Put me in coach. Let’s make this series happen. #RoseTicoDeservedBetter @starwars”.
It is impossible to scroll through your feed without seeing the big round doe-eyes and floppy-ears of Baby Yoda.
He is simply known as “the Child” and he’s stolen the hearts of anyone who has watched “The Mandolorian”. Not a lot is known about the character, except he is highly sought after, likes bone broth and frogs, and has stolen Mando’s heart as well. We do not know his origin, his powers or his name yet, but something we all know is that Disney knows exactly what they’re doing in time for the holidays. Sorry BB-8, Porgs, and Ewoks, Baby Yoda is truly the winner and the most kawaii in the Star Wars competition.
Kelly Marie Tran, the Vietnamese American actress who starred in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” two years ago, had to undergo therapy after being subjected to online harassment from toxic fans.

A kabuki play based on the popular George Lucas film franchise “Star Wars” is scheduled for a one-night show later this month in Tokyo, Japan.
Titled “Star Wars Kabuki-Rennosuke Hikarigatana Sanbon (Star Wars Kabuki-Rennosuke and the Three Light Sabers),” the show is set to be held on Nov. 28 in a theater in Tokyo, which has yet to be announced according to SoraNews24.
Rose Tico, a major character in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, has been silently removed from Star Wars merchandise for the next film in the franchise.
