After years of delays, Lucasfilm is finally pushing forward and the full cast list has been revealed. What’s interesting is, Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit) may have dropped a hint on who she could be playing.
After the official announcement came out, Ingram had shared a post of herself with the caption, “I play with lightsabers.” Here’s the post:

While that could be some kind of double-entendre joke, a lot of fans are already taking it as some kind of hint that she would be playing a Jedi in the series. While some are going so far as to say Ingram could be Clone Wars era Ahsoka Tano, I don’t really think she looks the part of a young Rosario Dawson. If anything, she could be another Jedi that survived the Purge. Maybe she could just be another Padawan in the Clone Wars—maybe even a Jedi Knight.
If anything, the whole cast remains a remains a mystery save for a few faces. We know that Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen will be reprising their roles as Obi-Wan and Anakin, but Joel Egerton and Bonnie Piesse we met way back in Attack of the Clones when they played a young Owen and Beru Lars. It would be interesting to see who the rest of the cast are playing, but it would probably be a while before the reveal.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is set to come out sometime in 2022. In the meantime, fans await The Book of Boba Fett which releases on Disney+ this holiday season.
