One of the most anticipated upcoming events Star Wars projects is Obi-Wan Kenobi, a six-part miniseries that will chronicle the titular Jedi’s self-exile on Tatooine after the Great Jedi Purge. Ewan McGregor is confirmed to reprise his role as Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen is confirmed to reprise his role as Obi-Wan’s fallen apprentice Darth Vader.
Obi-Wan isn’t the only Jedi to survive the memorable Order 66. Since his solo series will take place at the height of the Empire’s rule, a group of other surviving Jedi could appear in supporting roles.
10 Ahsoka Tano
Ahsoka Tano was attacked during the Great Jedi Purge despite having left the order by then, so she also had to go into hiding after escaping the wrath of the Empire.
The second season of The mandalorian featured a live-action Ahsoka before her own Disney + spin-off. This incarnation of the character could appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi to build on Ahsoka’s friendship with Obi-Wan from The Clone Wars.
9 Cal kestis
Cal Kestis survived the Great Jedi Purge because his master, Jaro Tapal, sacrificed himself to protect Kestis from his clone attackers. So, he was able to evade the clones and hid.
Kestis was the main protagonist of the video game. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Since The mandalorian has brought animated characters in the form of live action, Obi-Wan Kenobi you could do the same with a video game character.
8 Kira vantala
The collection of stories Dark legends revealed that a Jedi named Kira Vantala survived Order 66. When he confronted the Grand Inquisitor, he was shocked that she had made it out alive.
Rather than hide, Kira set out to stop the kidnapping of Force-sensitive orphans. This plot point could be integrated into the official canon as a subplot in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
After failing to stop Darth Sidious, Yoda hid on Dagobah. When Obi-Wan Kenobi Pick up, Yoda will hang out on the swampy planet, making stew and waiting for the Jedi’s last hope to appear in need of training.
It seems unlikely that Yoda did nothing to help the Rebellion during this time. Obi-Wan could travel to Dagobah to visit Yoda or the two of them could be caught up on a mission for the rebels.
6 Jocasta No.
Jocasta Nu is the librarian of the Jedi Archives who helped Obi-Wan uncover the mysteries of Kamino in Attack of the clones. After surviving the Great Jedi Purge, he set about starting a secret Jedi academy to train new recruits.
As you explore the last remaining fragments of the Jedi Order after the purge, Obi-Wan Kenobi could include this secret Jedi school as a plot point.
5 Eeth koth
After narrowly avoiding the purge, Eeth Koth hid in the guise of a priest in the Church of the Ganthic Enlightenment. He fell in love with a woman named Mira and had a child with her.
Unfortunately, Darth Vader and a task force of three inquisitors came looking for him and raided his home just minutes after his son was born. This tragic turn of events could be adapted to the Obi Wan Serie.
4 Chicken brake
Kanan Jarrus, born Caleb Dume, was a Jedi Padawan at the time of the purge. He managed to overcome the brutal attack of Order 66 thanks to a sacrifice made by his Master, Depa Billaba. The clones that hunted the last of the Jedi managed to capture Caleb, but he once again escaped them.
Dave Filoni has been using The mandalorian to build on the characters and plot points of Rebels in the form of live action. Obi-Wan Kenobi it could do the same if it included Kanan Jarrus.
3 Oppo rancisis
Oppo Rancisis was included in the Grand Inquisitor’s list of Jedi who survived Order 66, escaped the watchful eye of the Empire, and went into hiding.
If Rancisis appears in Obi-Wan Kenobi, then the series can explain how he managed to hide so well – in the words of the Grand Inquisitor, “extremely well” – and where he went.
two Mace window
Choosing to kill Mace Windu over Darth Sidious is the final nail in Anakin Skywalker’s coffin as he turns to the dark side and commits himself to the Sith. But both Samuel L. Jackson and George Lucas agree that Windu survived the fall from the window of Palpatine’s office on Coruscant. He was certainly seen surviving larger falls in The Clone Wars.
If Windu is to reappear, it could be for a climactic showdown in Boba Fett’s book, with the bounty hunter whose father he beheaded. But it could also be for a supporting role in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
After the first season of The mandalorian He left Grogu’s backstory a mystery, the second season he completed during an iconic scene when he met Ahsoka Tano and she used the Force to extract memories from his mind. He was trained in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and narrowly escaped the purge.
Between leaving the Jedi Temple and being discovered by Din Djarin, there is a huge gap in Grogu’s character arc. It is possible that it may appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi to delve a little deeper into its origins.
