Disney+ will have apparently have a young Luke Skywalker in its new Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
According to ComicBook.com, Patreon user @DanielRPK revealed a casting grid showing a young Luke Skywalker. (RELATED: Watch The Trailer For The ‘Star Wars’ Series ‘The Mandalorian’ On Disney+)
That means the timeline for the series is sometime between “Star Wars: A New Hope.” It’s not clear how many years before the original film it will take place.
This is very interesting. I have no idea how they’re going to fit in a young Skywalker because he never even met Obi-Wan until he was older.
What role is a young Skywalker going to have? I’m not sure I’m seeing it right now.
There is no set release date for the upcoming series yet, but I can’t imagine it gets here before 2021. If they haven’t even started filming yet, then I see no way it gets here this year.
Stuff like this takes a ton of time to put together.
Keep checking back for more updates when we have them!
