The two-episode premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobi introduced the younger versions of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, although we did get to see more of little Leia in the series. Unfortunately, the twins are planets apart and as we know, we won't get to see them together until several years later in A New Hope. Luckily, a new behind-the-scenes photo brings together the young actors playing the Skywalker twins in the cutest way.

The new Obi-Wan Kenobi behind-the-scenes image was shared on Twitter and it features Grant Feely and Vivien Lyra Blair, who play Luke and Leia in the series. Although the young actors are not in costume, fans love to see Feely and Blair together in one picture. Check it out below.

The first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi made it clear that both Luke and Leia will play important roles in the series. Although the young Luke only appeared briefly because Owen Lars didn't want him interacting with Obi-Wan, there was a lot of Leia who proved she was strong and funny even as a child. Needless to say, we're hoping to see more of the Skywalker twins in the next few weeks.

It was previously confirmed that the original Luke Skywalker approved of the new actor playing his character. Mark Hamill had shared an adorable reaction to Grant Feely's casting and the young Obi-Wan Kenobi star was truly excited about the compliment.

Sadly, we don't know what the late Carrie Fisher has to say about Vivien Leigh Blair's performance but fans believe that the original Princess Leia would approve of the way the little actress played her character as well.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a limited series and will only consist of six episodes. Although the show premiered on a Friday, the succeeding episodes will air on Wednesday. Episode 3 will premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
