We've long know that Ewan McGregor is reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a forthcoming Disney+ series, but now the show's full cast has been revealed, and there are plenty of exciting additions.

Along with McGregor and Hayden Christensen, the series will include appearances from Kumail Nanjiani, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Rupert Friend, Sung Kang, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Indira Varma and others.

In a particularly surprising choice, Benny Safdie — who directed films like Uncut Gems and Good Time with his brother Josh, and co-starred in the latter — will also appear in the series.

For those out there who have watched HBO's The Vow, you'll also notice that NXIVM survivor Bonnie Piesse is actually part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi cast as well.

As previously reported, Obi-Wan Kenobi is being written and executive produced by Joby Harold, who previously co-wrote John Wick 3

Obi-Wan Kenobi is said to be going into production soon.
