Moses Ingram gets to grips with lightsaber ahead of Star Wars spin-off mini-series

By Alan Johnson

American actress Moses Ingram has described using a lightsaber as a 'totally different beast' ahead of the launch of Star Wars spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi, which debuts on Disney+ on May 27.

The 27-year old plays the Third Sister, known as Reva, in the highly anticipated mini-series, set 15 years after the events of the 2005 film Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith (Episode III).

Star Wars fans will be hoping the the series, which sees Obi-Wan come to terms with the consequences of Anakin Skywalker’s dark side corruption to become Darth Vader, maintains Disney's form after the success of The Mandalorian and The Book Of Boba Fett.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Moses enthused: "Getting to learn to use a lightsaber was a totally different beast, but also very fun. Once you get it you feel real good, once you finally get it.

"There are so many muscles in your hand that you never use until you go to use a lightsaber."

She went on to admit that she knew little about Star Wars before joining cast, but was aware of the franchise from a cultural point of view.

"I was definitely thrilled to join it. I did not know a lot about Star Wars, but I know culturally what Star Wars is, I know Vader, I know Obi-Wan," she said.

"I know a lot more now obviously than I did at the beginning, but it's still super exciting to join something that's been around for years and years and years. It's very cool, it's iconic."

The six-episode run sees Ewan McGregor reprise his role as the title character, more than 15 years since starring in the Star Wars prequel trilogy between 1999 and 2005.

An executive producer of the mini-series, the 51-year old Scotsman said: "I think that the fans, from what I can see, really want to have an Obi-Wan story, and so I'm really happy that we've managed to give them that.

"I'm glad that people are up for it, I don't do social media so I’m not aware of that side of things, but I get the impression that people are excited about it."

Disney+ announced in 2020 that it had ten Star Wars series spin-offs planned. Further series in the pipeline include Andor, Ahsoka, The Acolyte and Lando.
