Sung Kang (the “Fast & Furious” saga) revealed in an interview that his character in the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series will sport a lightsaber.
By expressing his enthusiasm to appear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, has Sung Kang despite himself delivered a huge spoiler as to the plot of the new Star Wars soap opera? The doubt is allowed, since the American actor, seen this summer in Fast & Furious 9 entrusted to the site Screen Rant his joy in shooting lightsaber scenes. Issue: Sith and Jedi are no longer supposed to exist at this time of the timeline Star wars.
To have the chance to be on a film set with Darth Vader and the Star Wars universe in front of me… as a fan, to have the opportunity to be part of this story is something incredible. I kept pinching myself wondering ‘But how did I get here?’ And my character has a lightsaber, it’s not a toy but a real one.
The series taking place between the prelogy and the original trilogy, remember that its plot is therefore after the outbreak of Order 66 aimed at eliminating all the Jedi Knights. If a few of them managed to escape the Purge, these are only a handful: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Ahsoka Tano, Ezra Bridger (Star Wars Rebels) to name just the main ones. .
Everything therefore suggests that Sung Kang will camp a Jedi, or even a Sith, never crossed in the universe Star wars. Unless of course – but it seems unlikely – that his character uses a stolen lightsaber, or that Darth Vader agrees to lend him his for the duration of a scene (sic).
Recall that the series Obi-wan kenobi will be broadcast exclusively on Disney + in 2022.
