I take it that Darth Vader will be appearing in this series? I also take it that James Earl Jones was signed on to voice him?

I would hate to think that perhaps they went cheap and Gilbert Gottfried voiced the character before his death. :)
I haven't seen confirmation one way or the other but since Jones has voiced Vader in Rogue One and even a few episodes of the animated Rebels series, I'd expect to hear him here too.

Interesting bit about Obi-Wan as relates to The Rise of Skywalker:


I was never a fan of the Jedi's prohibition on marriage and having children. I would have liked to see a story that showed that tenet's failure and change in the Jedi order. It made the Jedi too monk-like, and unrelatable -- not to mention it encouraged those like Anakin to live in secret, with disastrous results.

The sequel is rumored to be called: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

and might get revealed at next week's SW Celebration.

Ewan McGregor actually talks about the Jedi: Fallen Order video game in that interview above, which is very cool, and shows that he’s apparently staying informed about the wider Star Wars-canon and tie-ins/spinoffs in other media, and not just his own particular TV show.

Sweet!

I rewatched the prequels this week and it was fantastic. I always love those films but it’s the first time in nearly 20 years that I’ve watched them where I knew there was more Ewan Obi-Wan around the corner - it made them feel a little more alive and relevant like they were new again.

I have a lot of stuff going on during the day tomorrow but I am still considering waiting up until 3am to watch the premiere tonight even knowing I’ll be suffering tomorrow. I really feel like I did in 2005 waiting for Episode III at midnight. I remember walking out of Episode III on such a high because of how much I loved it, but a little sad thinking that this would be the last time I’d see that world onscreen. Getting to go back again feels like a gift.
