O’SHEA JACKSON JR. JOINS ‘STAR WARS’ FRANCHISE THROUGH UPCOMING ‘OBI-WAN KENOBI’ DISNEY SERIES


O'Shea Jackson Jr. has joined the Star Wars franchise.

Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson has been cast in the upcoming Disney Plus show Obi-Wan Kenobi; Deadline announced on Monday (March 29). Hayden Christensen will comeback as Darth Vader while Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who portrayed Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. The story will begin a decade after the 2005 movie Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith ended with Anakin Skywalker switching to the dark side.

O'Shea Jackson Jr. made his acting introduction depicting his father in the N.W.A biopic "Straight Outta Compton" in 2015. Since then, he's gone on to star alongside 50 Cent in 2018's "Den of Thieves" and has also had roles in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the indie film Ingrid Goes West, to name a few.

In 2018, he announced plans to resume his early interests in music and work with Lil Dicky, Method Man, and Big Sean – though he doesn't seem to have followed throw with his promise.

"It's always within the arts that are my go-to and what I've been doing now is getting all the musicians that I've met over this journey and just being cool with, and I got a couple of 'em to spit over these bars, and we'll possibly get an album out or a compilation," O'Shea Jackson Jr. according to HipHopDX reports. "My man Method Man said he'd hook me up with a verse, so I'll make sure I get that finished. I'm working with my homie Lil Dicky, my homie Big Sean so we're headed toward something real nice, and I talked to my mom, so Ice Cube's going to be on it."

In the meantime, there's no word on when the new series will air, but it will start production next month.
