After learning who will play Darth Vader in Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off, Star Wars fans have gone wild. Since the first episodes aired last week, fans have been enthralled by the long-awaited drama, which stars Ewan McGregor as the iconic Jedi master.
Picking Up from Before
The series begins up a decade after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, when Kenobi “watches after young Luke Skywalker and evades the Empire’s best Jedi hunters while exiled on the desert planet Tatooine.”
More Than a Tease
Fans have quickly gotten into the episodes that have been released thus far, but it was in the third episode that things really picked up and we first saw Darth Vader, the legendary villain.
Online speculations about who will voice the Sith Lord had been circulating in the run-up to the series’ premiere, and it now appears that our suspicions have been verified. That’s correct, James Earl Jones has returned to resume his role as the intimidating Vader.
