The much awaited Obi-Wan Kenobi teaser trailer has recently dropped online and it is everything every Star Wars fan has been waiting for.
The new teaser for the spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi features a lot of new and familiar characters that Star Wars fans are looking forward to. First off, some familiar faces from the Star Wars universe like Obi-Wan Kenobi played by Ewan McGregor, young Luke Skywalker, and surprisingly, the Grand Inquisitor in live action. The Grand Inquisitor was first revealed in Star Wars Rebels and now in live action portrayed by Rupert Friend, the guy who also portrayed Agent 47 in the 2015 film Hitman: Agent 47. The Fifth Brother has been casted as well and it is portrayed by Sung Kang, famous for his role in The Fast and the Furious franchise.
There are some unfamiliar characters here and one in particular is possibly a Sister from the Inquisitor group. The character is portrayed by Moses Ingram and her costume definitely speaks volumes of a Sister from the Inquisitor group. For those who do not know, the Inquisitors is a group under Darth Vader that are in charge of hunting down the Jedi remnants across the galaxy after they survived the famous Order 66.
Here is a synopsis from the YouTube trailer:
