Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ewan McGregor stars in Star Wars trailer

Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally dropped on Disney Plus – and while you may recognise lead actor Ewan McGregor, viewers were left stunned to see another familiar face on the show.

The first two episodes of the live-action Star Wars series premiered on the streaming service this week, as fans raced to see McGregor back in his Obi-Wan role.

However, it was the surprise appearance from an unexpected pop star that really shocked some viewers at home.

Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers appears in the Disney Plus series, where he takes on the role of Vect Nokru.

Vect is a sinister bounty hunter who leads a trio of baddies to Alderaan on a quest to kidnap the 10-year-old Princess Leia Organa.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “No way did I just see Flea in Obi Wan.”

While a second added: “I watched the first episode of @obiwankenobi last night and I was so tired it took me like 5 mins to figure out it was Flea. I was like, ‘Hang on that guy’s familiar’. I felt like an idiot lol.”

Another viewer tweeted: “Love that Flea is in Obi Wan.”
