Obi-Wan Kenobi: Kumail Nanjiani’s Haja Is More Important
Haja Estree by Kumail Nanjiani is more important than his first appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor returned to Star Wars to return to his role as titular Jedi Master 17 years ago.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, who records his adventure in rescuing the kidnapped Leie Organ (Vivien Lyra Blair), sees Ben Kenobi meeting many new characters in the evolving space opera.
Disney and Lucasfilm have decided to keep the specific details of the plot and characters for Obi-Wan Kenobi until the series begins on Disney +.
Apart from returning characters such as Darth Vader of Hayden Christensen and Obi-Wan Kenobi of McGregor, there are almost no details about the new characters in the series.
That while Nanjiani's participation in Star Wars had long been confirmed, his exact role remained unclear until he debuted in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 2.
As is well known, Haja of Nanjiani is a street artist who pretends to be a Jedi to deceive people for financial gain. Obi-Wan immediately saw his plan,
and even though the Jedi Master does not reveal his true identity, he will use this information to force Haju to help him find young Leia.
Haja has now teamed up with Leia following the events of Obi-Wan Kenobi, episode 5.
