It's no secret that the upcoming Star Wars series that will focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most highly anticipated shows on Disney+. After all, it has already been confirmed that Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi Master and that the series will take place after the events in Revenge of the Sith.
However, it looks like Old Ben Kenobi isn't the only character from the original Star Wars film who will appear in the upcoming show. A new report reveals that a casting call for the series could confirm that young Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker will make an appearance.
One of the first things that was confirmed about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is that Ewan McGregor will be brought back to play the character since the show will reveal what happened to him after he brought Luke Skywalker as a baby back to Tatooine.
In addition to that, it was revealed that The Mandalorian director Deborah Chow would be working on the episodes of the Star Wars series. However, there were no updates on who else will appear in the Disney+ show. Nevertheless, fans believed that there is a huge possibility that characters who appeared in the prequel trilogy movies could join the action.
But is it possible that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will actually feature a younger version of characters who had appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy? According to The Illuminerdi, the show has put out a casting call for young actors who could join Ewan McGregor.
The casting call is, reportedly, looking for a "(Girl) Caucasian, 8-11 years old, to portray a precocious girl," as well as a "(Boy) Caucasian, 8-11 years old, to portray a precocious boy." Since the children are set to be the same age, this led to speculations that they will be twins and the most popular twins in the Star Wars franchise are none other than Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker.
The appearance of Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker in the Obi-Wan series isn't exactly a huge shock. After all, it has been known that Old Ben checked on Luke during his time in Tatooine although he always kept his distance.
In addition to that, it wouldn't be a big stretch to depict how Leia grew up under the care of Senator Organa. However, it is important to point out that the Star Wars casting has not yet been confirmed. With that in mind, it would be best to take this with a grain of salt.
