Disney Plus revealed on Monday the all-star cast for its upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series, along with details about when production will begin.

“Production begins soon on Obi-Wan Kenobi, a special event series coming to #DisneyPlus,” a tweet from the streaming site read about the teaming up again of Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen for the show. The post was noted by the Daily Mail. (RELATED: Disney Is Planning 10 New ‘Star Wars’ Series To Stream On Disney+)

It comes after it was previously revealed McGregor would be reprising his role as the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi with Hayden Christensen returning as Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker).

The series is set to take place in the “Star Wars” saga 10 years after “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” and will most likely tell the story of the Jedi Master as he remained in hiding and survived until Luke Skywalker and Leah Skywalker became of age and joined the fight against the Darth Vader and the Imperial Forces.

Kathleen Kennedy, LucasFilm president, previously described the battle between the Jedi and Vader as “the rematch of the century.”
