Hints have also been dropped by Rupert Friend, who plays the who plays the ‘Grand Inquisitor’ in the upcoming series. Speaking to Hey U Guys , the actor revealed that  the show will feature “wonderful cameos”.

“I think it’s one of the most thrilling additions to the Star Wars canon,” Friend said. “I think Ewan McGregor is doing things with that role that is a dream for fans of the original films… we can’t obviously have Alec Guinness back, but I just think Ewan was absolutely born to play that part.”

“But wonderful cameos from people I obviously can’t tell you, Easter eggs galore and… yeah, it’s a thrilling ride.”
