Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea Makes Surprise Appearance in 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

·1 min read

Flea made his Star Wars debut with a special appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi, which just premiered on Disney+. Readers who have yet to watch the two-episode premiere should be warned of the spoilers ahead.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist portrayed the role of a bounty hunter hired by Third Sister Reva Severand, played by Moses Ingram, to kidnap 10-year-old Princess Leia, played by Vivien Lyra Blair, from Alderaan. Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan goes to rescue Leia after her adoptive father asks for this big favor, leading him straight to Reva. Flea's character supposedly meets his demise in the second episode, and it remains to be seen if he returns in the future.

Obi-Wan Kenobi marks Flea's first acting role of 2022, but he is also expected to appear in Damien Chazelle's Babylon, which will premiere in December. The musician previously appeared in titles such as Back to the Future Part II and Part III, The Big Lebowski, Baby Driver, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and much more.

New episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi premiere every Wednesday on Disney+.
