This Wednesday, June 8, Disney + released the fourth episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The opportunity for us to reveal this unsuspected link between the Star Wars mini-series and… The Star Academy!
Available from May 27, Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place precisely ten years after the events shown in Revenge of the Sith (2005). The new Star Wars miniseriesshows Obi-Wan protecting the very young Leia from the clutches of the Inquisitors, former Jedi at the boot of the Empire, while his former apprentice fallen from the dark side of the Force, Anakin Skywalker, alias Darth Vader, wishes to end his days. An epic adventure pretext to see the master and the padawan cross the lightsaber again. Event series, Obi-Wan Kenobi brings together on the small screen two of the most famous actors of the prelogy. Ewan McGregor takes over the role of the eponymous Jedi he has played since The Phantom Menace (1999), while Hayden Christensen takes on the Anakin Skywalker costume for a third time.
French side, the voice cast of Obi-Wan Kenobino shortage of top stars. Indeed, if you watch the mini-series in VF, you will surely have recognized a very familiar voice. At least if you were fed at Star Academy. To double Moses Ingram, interpreter of the formidable Inquisitor Reva Sevander, Disney + called on the services of a certain Aurélie Konaté, a 45-year-old actress and singer whom TF1 viewers discovered exactly twenty years ago in the second season of the famous tele-hook whose return we are impatiently awaiting.
Aurélie Konaté, from Star Academy to Obi-Wan Kenobi
If she did not win the bet against Nolwenn Leroy in 2002, Aurélie Konaté has proven herself in the register of musical comedy after the Star Academy. We were able to appreciate her talents on stage in Belles, Belles Belles and Sister Act before finding her on television in very famous PAF series such as Chante< /em>, Camping Paradis, Tomorrow belongs to us or even Plus Belle la vie. But Konaté has more than one string to his bow. The actress often lends her voice to other actresses during dubbing sessions. We can thus hear her in To all the boys on Netflix, or even in the MCU where she doubles Shuri (Letitia Wright in VO), sister of Black Panther. So here is Aurélie Konaté entering the Star Wars galaxy. May the Force be with her!
