Article | Top 5 characters that may appear in ‘Kenobi’, the new ‘Star Wars’ series

The Jedi Master series is set to premiere in 2022

One of the highlights of the prequel trilogy of George Lucas, at least in the public eye, was the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. In the same way that the public was able to follow Anakin Skywalker’s personal growth, something similar was worked out with his iconic master; not so much from a personal side but rather from the point of view of his career in the order of Jedi Knights.

Introduced in the first episode as an inexperienced padawan (apprentice) he matures as he witnesses his master’s death, arriving in later productions as an individual who must learn to behave like a teacher with the stormy Anakin as a pupil.

Much of the affection developed by the public also involves the performance of Ewan McGregor that tries to give continuity to the work presented by Alec Guinness in 1977, but also giving a very unique charm to the character. Now having an upcoming solo series, Kenobi, on the way it remains to speculate which characters will show up there.

5) Darth Maul

The antagonistic relationship between Maul and Kenobi goes back to the movie. The Phantom Menace, when the Sith Lord murdered Obi-Wan’s master, Qui Gon Jin, in front of him. The then-Padawan defeats Maul by cutting him around the waist, but that wasn’t the end of the iconic villain’s journey.

Even though a meeting between him and Kenobi is unlikely to take place, mentions may still occur.

In the animations (Clone Wars e Rebels) it has already been established that he survived this fight and embarked on a pilgrimage across the galaxy, always harboring a deadly hatred for Kenobi. In the movies, after Disney’s purchase of the brand, the villain made a quick appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, confirming that its survival is something canonical. As far as the series is concerned, he may not appear directly but through flashbacks or mentions.

4) Bail Organa

Leia’s adoptive father is the type of figure who, in the canon of the saga, has an important position even though he barely appeared (at least in a post-rise of empire scenario). During the prequel trilogy his presence was more active, especially in episode III when he and Padmé realize the imminent fall of the Republic.

The former senator is one of the few allies left to the Jedi

At the end of the film, Obi-Wan entrusts the newborn to the senator from Alderaan so that she can be raised far from Vader’s shadow. He even had a stake in Rogue One as one of the leaders of the rebellion, as well as subtly referencing the aforementioned Jedi. The character may emerge in the series’ plot to ask Kenobi for help or as the only contact outside of Tatooine he still has.

3) Satine Kryze

One of Obi-Wan’s most defining characteristics is his unwavering commitment to the precepts of the Jedi order; among them chastity. However, this did not stop him from already falling in love, as it was with the Mandalorian Duchess Satine.

The time Obi-Wan gave up his heart

The dilemma between the tenets of order and the desire to be close to Satine met a tragic end during the Clone Wars, when the Duchess was killed by Darth Maul and Obi-Wan found himself in one of the few times he almost gave in to the dark side. . It would not be surprising if apparitions of her emerged from the dunes of Tatooine to torture the exiled knight.

2) Yoda

At the end of Episode III, the Jedi order boiled down to just two members: Obi-Wan and Yoda; both left for isolated worlds and there remained anonymous in order to avoid the empire. However, before they left, Yoda promised Obi-Wan to continue his training towards a new skill.

The old master still had teachings to pass on to Obi-Wan

The ability to communicate with the ghosts of force is something present in Star Wars since 1977, when Kenobi’s voice helped Luke destroy the Death Star and, in the next movie, guided him to Dagobah to find the little green master. Kenobi’s ability to communicate with Luke even after death was something Yoda taught him and throughout the series the Jedi master will most likely meditate on this ability or even remember the elder’s teachings on how to maintain a connection with the afterlife. .

1) Qui-Gon Jinn

central figure in phantom threat, the Jedi Master was killed by Maul in front of the young Kenobi’s eyes and even before he started Anakin’s training. Even so, its existence left a profound impact on several characters (as best seen in certain parts of Clone Wars but also in the prequels).

It was Qui-Gon who perfected the method of communicating with the ghosts of the force and in the future this ability becomes essential for the rebellion to deal a mortal blow to the empire. Even though the character’s actor, Liam Neeson, has not confirmed its presence in the production, at least its existence must be referenced by Obi-Wan himself at some point.
