Obi-Wan Star Kumail Nanjiani has finally gotten the better of his cousin with the best action figure collection

Kumail Nanjiani scored some major franchise credibility at the end of 2021 with Kingo in Eternals, and six months after the release of the Marvel movie, it does it again! Nanjiani is now part of the star wars universe thanks to Obi Wan Kenobi, with her character, Haja Estree, appearing in the second episode of the Disney+ series. Although Nanjiani admitted he was “intimidated” acting opposite Ewan McGregor when the actor was in Obi-Wan mode, that bit of discomfort pales in comparison to all the good things he’s experienced on this project. Now Nanjiani is even happier to be a part of Obi Wan Kenobi because he finally got the better of his cousin with the best collection of action figures.

Know how to participate in star wars project, whether on camera or behind the scenes, is big enough on its own, but Kumail Nanjiani scored something extra: his own poster. This is how Nanjiany reacted Twitter seeing Haja featured on a piece of Obi Wan Kenobi Promotional material:

Kumail Nanjiani’s cousin may have had the upper hand in his youth with his action figure collection, but fast forwarding a few decades I think we can all agree that the actor has indeed forged ahead . Now granted, if Nanjiani’s cousin is still a star wars fans these days may have continued to collect toys from the franchise, and that could be even more impressive than the merchandise Nanjiani has accumulated. That being said, playing a star wars character, namely the one who received his own poster, is certainly the top achievement. As a bonus, Haja gets the silhouette of Darth Vader under the stylistic sun covering his left eye.

Since Obi Wan Kenobi just premiered its first two episodes, I won’t share what’s going on with Kumail Nanjiani star wars character; you must use your Disney+ subscription to see it for yourself. However, before the premiere, Nanjiani talked about how Haja Estree is someone who works on the streets of Daiyu, and he’s a con man who only cares about himself. However, by crossing paths with Obi-Wan Kenobi, his life is turned upside down, and I’ll leave it at that.

Kumail Nanjiani is just one of the notable actors who appear during Obi Wan Kenobiis running. Along with the return of Ewan McGregor as the title character, we also have Hayden Christensen reprising Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Joel Edgerton reprising Owen Lars, and Bonnie Piesse reprising Beru Whitesun Lars. The cast also includes Rupert Friend as Grand Inquisitor, Moses Ingram as Reva/The Third Sister and Sung Kang as The Fifth Brother, as well as Benny Safdie, Indira Varma, Flea, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Maya Erskine in roles that haven’t been disclosed or shouldn’t be spoiled here. Mandalorian alum Deborah Chow directed all episodes, and Joby Harold served as showrunner.

CinemaBlend will continue to provide coverage on Obi Wan Kenobias well as all the others to come star wars movies and TV shows. As for Kumail Nanjiani, he is filming the next Hulu series Immigrantwhere he plays Somen ‘Steve’ Banerjee, founder of Chippendales.
