“Obi-Wan Kenobi”: O’Shea Jackson Jr. comments on theories surrounding the series

Published

on

O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”) is one of the cast in the upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” miniseries, and his role remains a mystery.

Like the fans, the star is a big admirer of the ‘Star Wars’ saga and also follows the theories that are created around the plot.

During an interview with Screen Rant, Jackson commented on the matter and assured the show that the series will surprise audiences as most of the theories don’t even come close to what has been prepared.

“It’s so hard to read these theories because like everything I read or see on the internet, I’m like ‘Man, don’t do it. People have no idea what’s going to happen! All these theories and those people who guess what’s going to happen, you know? Most are wrong so it’s fun to follow the proceedings. I would like to talk more, but as soon as I get the green light I can do a special two hours to talk about everything.

Previously, he had spoken to Collider and hinted that his character would be an ally of Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Kumail Nanjiani’s character (“Eternals”).

“I’m a huge ‘Star Wars’ fan and even auditioned to play Lando in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’. I was devastated when I failed and thought about pursuing a career as a screenwriter, but my agent called me to tell me that they needed a guy like me for a series of the saga.

He continued:

“I was sent to a meeting with Deb, Debora Chow, and she gave me a unique opportunity. Can’t wait to talk about it, but I know Mickey must have bugged my phone. It’s great to work alongside Ewan and Kumail, I learned a lot from these guys. Ewan is my boy, a true lord, and Kumail was already giving me muscle building tips when I played in ‘Den of Thieves 2’ because he turned into a monster to play in ‘Eternals’. We had a great trio.

So, do you have any idea who he’s playing?

Previously, Nanjiani had revealed to Rolling Stone that he would be doing some sort of remake of an already famous character.

“When I spoke with director Deborah Chow, we had a great conversation and the character seemed amazing to me. I was excited about the role. We’ve never seen this thing we’re going to do, exactly, in ‘Star Wars.’ It’s like a remake of some kind of character from the saga that we’ve seen before.

He also revealed that he would be in direct contact with the Jedi played by McGregor.

“I had already heard that Ewan [McGregor] he was a super nice guy. And then we got to know each other a bit… There was a point where we were so turned on by the conversation that we didn’t even realize they were recording, then I got embarrassed and said : ‘Oh, so I’m not talking to Ewan anymore, I’m talking to Kenobi’. My character was supposed to be a little intimidated by him, and I was a little intimidated, actually. You know, it’s Obi-Wan standing in front of you.

Recalling that the cast also includes Sung Kang (“F9”), Rupert Friend (“Homeland”), Indira Varma (“Game of Thrones”), Moses Ingram (“The Queen’s Gambit”), Simone Kessell (“Reckoning”) and Benny Safdie (‘Raw Jewelry’).

It should be noted that Hayden Christensen returns as Anakin Skywalker, with Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse as Luke Skywalker’s uncles, Owen and Beru Lars.

Previously, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to The Wrap that “Kenobi” would be a miniseries, with a predetermined beginning, middle, and end:

“It’s really exciting to see the talents involved here. And now we’re developing the Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries with Deborah Chow and she’s done a phenomenal job.

Directed by Deborah Chow, “Kenobi” will only have six episodes lasting an hour.

For now, the first forecasts are only for 2022.
