Is Flea in Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Flea in Obi-Wan Kenobi

The Star Wars universe has a rich history of incorporating a diverse range of actors, from seasoned thespians to renowned musicians. The tradition continues with the latest Star Wars project, the Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi. This eagerly anticipated series has piqued the interest of fans worldwide with its casting of Flea, the bassist from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in a crucial role.

Flea as Vect Nokru

Flea, whose real name is Michael Peter Balzary, steps into the Star Wars universe in the role of Vect Nokru. In a departure from his music career, Flea’s character is not the bassist of a cantina band but rather a bounty hunter hired for a perilous task. Vect Nokru’s objective is to kidnap a young Princess Leia, an assignment that guarantees a collision course with the series’ titular character, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The Mission to Lure Obi-Wan

Vect Nokru’s mission forms a significant part of the show’s plot. He is hired by Reva, portrayed by Moses Ingram. Reva seeks to lure Obi-Wan out of his self-imposed exile following the fall of the Jedi Order, and she believes that the abduction of Princess Leia will achieve this objective. As such, Flea’s Vect Nokru is poised to play a pivotal role in the series.

Princess Leia’s Role

Adding another layer to this narrative is the casting of Vivien Lyra Blair as a young Princess Leia. Known to audiences as Girl in the Netflix film “Bird Box”, Blair’s role in “Obi-Wan Kenobi” expands the character’s backstory and sets the stage for Leia’s future as a leader in the Rebel Alliance.
