There are some stand-out castings here. Joel Edgerton returns as a young Owen Lars. He played the character in Star Wars. Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Bonnie Piesse is also returning as Beru, his girlfriend, and future wife. Eternals star Kumail Nanijani has also joined the cast in an unspecified role. They’ve also nabbed Sung Kang of The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift fame. It is quite a cast and it’ll be interesting to see how the show tells this bridge story before he makes his return in A New Hope. They could even answer the question of how Ewan McGregor ages into Alec Guinness in a few years.
