It's no secret that Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most anticipated Disney+ series under the Star Wars banner. This is especially true after the reveal that it will explore the adventures of Ewan McGregor's titular Jedi Master after the gut-wrenching events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

Directed by The Mandalorian's Deborah Chow, Obi-Wan Kenobi will take place ten years after the events of Order 66, diving deep into the character's on-the-run status from the dangerous Empire. Hayden Christensen is set to make his triumphant Star Wars return to the series as Darth Vader, confirming a much-awaited rematch between the two former friends. 

Aside from the thrilling duel, Obi-Wan Kenobi will also feature a wide array of interesting characters, which includes the likes of Joel Edgerton's Uncle Owen and Bonnie Piesse's Aunt Beru Skywalker.

A good chunk of the show's cast remains a mystery, but Moses Ingram appears to tease that her character is Force-sensitive. Now, a new video seemingly confirms that this is the case.

Moses Ingram, who will play an unknown character in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, posted a new video showcasing her lightsaber training for the show.

This isn't the first time that Ingram teased that her character will wield a lightsaber in the series. After the official announcement of the show's cast, the actress playfully revealed that she will “play” with lightsabers in the Disney+ series. 


Production for Obi-Wan Kenobi is now underway, and it seems that Moses Ingram will soon catch up with the rest of the cast to film her scenes for the show. Even though the video shows the actress wielding a blue lightsaber, this tidbit still doesn't confirm her character's allegiance to the Force. 

Still, Ingram's poise and expertise in showcasing her lightsaber skills are a visual treat, thus cementing her as a solid addition to the stacked cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi

This new video essentially confirms that Ingram's character in the series is Force-sensitive, and it will be interesting to find out if she is a Jedi or one of the Inquisitors who will hunt down Ewan McGregor's titular hero. 

Order 66 is a pivotal moment in the Skywalker Saga, ultimately leading to the Great Jedi Purge. Despite that, Star Wars lore confirmed that there is still a good chunk of Jedi Knights who survived the ordeal, and Ingram's lightsaber-wielding character could be one of them. 

On the flip side, the prevalent speculation from fans is the idea that Ingram's mysterious character is one of Darth Vader's Inquisitors. By going into this route, it presents many story possibilities while also setting the stage for the live-action debut of the dangerous dark side agents. 

Whatever the case, lightsaber action will grace the small screen courtesy of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and this should bolster more hype for the series. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to stream on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
