OBI-WAN KENOBI Leak Reveals New Jedi Actor And Who Is Playing Princess Leia's Mother

That's right, we have even more Obi-Wan Kenobi intel to share with you, including who is set to play a Jedi Knight in the Disney+ series and the actress who will bring Princess Leia's mother to life...

Now we've had our first look at Obi-Wan Kenobi, speculation is running rampant about many of the other characters who will appear in the Disney+ limited series. Yesterday, we got character details for O'Shea Jackson Jr., Indira Varma, and Kumail Nanjiani, and Bespin Bulletin has followed that by revealing Benny Safdie's role in the show.

We've previously told you about a young Jedi who comes to Tatooine searching for Obi-Wan, only to be rebuffed by the Jedi Master. That's Nari, and Safdie will be bringing him to life here. The site adds that "Reva, The Fifth Brother, and The Grand Inquisitor shake down civilians trying to lure Nari out, and all three enter an establishment [where] we see the Grand Inquisitor giving a speech about the Jedi not being able to help themselves."

As you might recall from our previous reports, Nari was a Padawan who grew up in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and has been searching for Obi-Wan ever since seeing his message after Order 66 was enacted. Unfortunately, "Ben" Kenobi isn't looking to help him as he's so dejected following the fall of the Jedi Order. That doesn't end well for poor Nari, but it's then that Obi-Wan is spurred into action. 

Safdie is actually best known for his work behind the camera alongside brother Josh. They helmed Uncut Gems and Good Time, though Benny has also acted in several projects, including Licorice Pizza, Pieces of a Woman, and Christopher Nolan's upcoming Oppenheimer.

Another interesting tidbit is that actress Simone Kessell is playing Breha Organa, Princess Leia's mother.

Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres on Disney+ on May 25.
