After a long hiatus, it seems that Lucasfilm is picking up speed on the production of Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is set 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. As the name suggests, the show will focus on the titular Jedi Master in his exile on Tatooine, watching over a young Luke Skywalker and hiding away from the Empire.
Disney recently announced that Hayden Christensen is also reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, so to say that fans are excited for the return of the duo would be an understatement.
Now, however, according to a new report by Kessel Run Transmissions, the producers have cast Temuera Morrison to play Commander Cody. And apparently, the character will be tasked with finding Kenobi. Morrison has been absolutely knocking it out of the park as Boba Fett in the ongoing second season of The Mandalorian.
