Star Wars: Jar Jar Binks actor Ahmed Best reacts to Ewan McGregor in Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer

Star Wars’ Jar Jar Binks actor Ahmed Best has given his verdict on the trailer Obi Wan Kenobi.

Fans of the franchisor were over the moon on Wednesday (March 9) when the first look at the new spin-off series starring Ewan McGregor was leaked online.

The series will be set between the prequels and George Lucas’ original trilogy of films.

Best, who starred alongside McGregor in 1999 Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, tweeted: “Almost jumped out of room when Duel of the Fates fell.”

He added: “GET EM FAM!” while saying, “I enjoy being a fan and seeing my friends continue to be amazing.”

“Duel of the Fates” is the theme played during the final lightsaber duel between Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Darth Maul (Ray Park).The Phantom Menace. It also plays over the end credits of the film.

The use of the theme in the trailer received the most reaction from fans, who called it a “cheap trick” but conceded that it made them even more “hyped” for the series.

Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker alongside McGregor in the prequels, will return in the series.

Other actors set to star in the new series include Kumail Nanjiani, Benny Safdie, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Rupert Friend and Fast & Furious’s Sung Kang.

Joel Edgerton will reprise the role of prequel trilogy character Owen Lar on the new show.

Obi Wan Kenobi will be released on Disney Plus on May 25, 2022.
