Rumors Of Beru’s Star Wars Comeback Started Years Before Obi-Wan Kenobi

In a 2022 interview with ComicBook.com, Piesse revealed that she’d been hearing rumors about Beru getting worked back into the mix for years. She just wasn’t sure how the story would be told. “[A]t one point, I heard that there was going to be a movie,” she said. All she could do was cross her fingers and wait for her, and hopefully her onscreen spouse’s, phone to ring (and hope that Beru’s scenes wouldn’t get scrapped like the moment cut from “Attack of the Clones”). As Piesse told ComicBook.com:

“[J]oel Edgerton has had an awesome career since we filmed the prequels, so I figured they might want to bring him back, too, and I’m sure they have to bring Beru back. I was hopeful, but I couldn’t be happier, really, with how it all came around in a six-part series, and the way it’s all done with Deborah Chow directing and everything is really, really special.”

Though critics were mixed on “Obi-Wan Kenobi” as a whole (/Film’s Ethan Anderton was a fan), it was nice to see Piesse give us a more palpable sense of a character that was, until this point, most memorable for getting burned to a crisp by Stormtroopers. Personally, it was also a familiar role that helped ease her back into acting after taking on the marketing cult NXIVM (you can learn all about her battle in the documentary “The Vow”). Thanks to her performance in “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” the next time you watch “A New Hope,” her awful fate should slam home harder than ever. This may be the most important thing the miniseries accomplished.
