Many people have also joked that Pac-Man will be appearaing in the upcoming series thanks to a poorly-placed cloud over the sun.
Before checking out some of the Obi-Wan/Pac-Man tweets, here's what you can expect in Obi-Wan Kenobi... In addition to the return of McGregor and Christensen, the cast also includes the return of Joel Edgerton as Owen Lars and Bonnie Piesse as Beru Lars. Star Wars newcomers include Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Maya Erskine, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
