Things for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spinoff series are starting to get interesting. Ewan McGregor recently revealed that he filmed scenes with Stormtroopers, delighting fans of the original and prequel trilogies alike. Obi-Wan encountering the Empire will certainly make life complicated for the reclusive Jedi. He’ll also have to do so without the guidance of his former Master. Other reports tell us that Liam Neeson will not reprise his role of Qui-Gon Jinn. The show’s all-star cast makes us wonder who, then, Obi-Wan will come across in the new series. Here are three characters we’d love to see, and two of them are even Jedi.
This seems like a no-brainer. Ahsoka had a close relationship with Obi-Wan, working side by side with the Jedi Master and Anakin Skywalker throughout the Clone Wars. Ahsoka was also a key member of the Rebellion in its formative years, serving as secret informant “Fulcrum.” From the Star Wars Rebels series, we also know she had ties to Bail Organa, who just happens to be one of the few people in the galaxy who knows that Kenobi is still alive. Plus, Disney and Lucasfilm are all-in on a new Ahsoka series starring Rosario Dawson… and we all know how the House of Mouse loves cross-marketing.
Could Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos reunite?
Very few Jedi survived Order 66’s purge. There’s one in particular, however, whose fate remains unclear. Jedi Master Quinlan Vos seemed to disappear into obscurity after the events of the novel Dark Disciple. It’s entirely possible that he survived Order 66. Further, he, like Ahsoka, has a history of working with Obi-Wan Kenobi. And let’s not forget – a younger Quinlan Vos has even spent time on Tatooine. His appearance in The Phantom Menace is confirmed canon. That’s him, working undercover in the background (just below Anakin’s chin on the left) in the photos above.
Obi-Wan Kenobi had a lot of close relationships, but not all of them were what one would call healthy. Take Cad Bane, for example. Time and again Obi-Wan tangled with the blue-skinned Duros bounty hunter. Admittedly, there was a scene in an unfinished Clone Wars episode where Boba Fett faces off against Bane (and seemingly wins), but that never made it into the show’s final production. Assuming Bane survived the Clone Wars, and knowing how bounty hunters infamously work the Outer Rim, could a reunion of old foes be in the cards?
