Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Series News

Well, Star Wars fans have been celebrating the return of actor Temuera Morrison, who has taken over the role of Boba Fett in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, and now it sounds like he could be joining the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. 

Morrison first joined the franchise as Jango Fett and the Clone Troopers in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, then re-recording Boba Fett's dialogue in one of George Lucas' revisions of the original trilogy. Aside from taking on the live-action mantle of Boba, it looks like Morrison will continue to take on on expanding role if this rumor to be believed.

According to a rumor from Kessel Run Transmissions, Morrison will play a role in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series and reunite with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen. But it doesn't sound like he'll be playing a Fett, but instead someone fans would recognize from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Morrison's character Commander Cody is probably his most recognizable role in the Star Wars galaxy other than Jango Fett, though that's mostly due to the character's prominence in The Clone Wars. And given that Lucasfilm is eager to continue to mine those stories for new live-action appearances on shows like Star Wars: The Mandalorian, it makes sense that they'd bring back Morrison to pull double duty in the Obi-Wan series.
