Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Kumail Nanjiani shares a priceless reaction to his Star Wars debut on Twitter. Obi-Wan Kenobi recently premiered on Disney+ and will have episodes airing weekly until late June.

Ewan McGregor stars, reprising his role as the series' titular character, which he previously played in the Star Wars prequels back in the early 2000s.

Hayden Christensen, who played young Anakin Skywalker in the prequels, also reclaims his place in the Star Wars universe, playing an adult Darth Vader.

These familiar faces are joined by newer talents, including Najiani. Pen19 writer and star Maya Erksine will also feature in episodes of the series,

along with Good Time and Uncut Gems director Benny Safdie. Nanjiani plays Haja Estree in the series, a con-man masquerading as a Jedi.

Nanjiani's role in Obi-Wan Kenobi is a departure from the actor's usual genre, who got his start in comedy.

Imbued with Nanjiani's classic sense of humor, the actor's tweet also shows how honored the actor is to be acting in such a major series.

Nonetheless, Nanjiani's entry into the Star Wars universe is definitely a significant step in his career as he breaks into the blockbuster spotlight once more.
