Directed by Deborah Chow, Obi-Wan Kenobi came out on May 27, 2022. The show follows the story of the Jedi Master as he contends with the consequences of his greatest defeat; the corruption of his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. Today we’re bringing you the Obi-Wan Kenobi Easter Eggs from the first two episodes of the series. Go and watch it now on Disney+.
The show is set 10 years after the Revenge of the Sith. We find out that Obi-Wan is hiding out in Tatooine. He hasn’t used the Force in some time and he has also buried his lightsaber. Here he looks after young Luke Skywalker and Leia, his twin sister. As the story progresses we see that young Leia is kidnapped and Obi-Wan must find her. He then goes to Daiyu and finally uses the Force as he saves her. You can find more entertainment news on Retrology as well.
The show will also introduce us to Riva, The Third Sister, who was the one behind Leia’s kidnapping. She is working for the Grand Inquisitor but when the Grand Inquisitor tries to take credit for the job she had done, Riva shoves the lightsaber through him. Riva also later tells Obi-Wan something very horrifying that we’ll explain at the end.
Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker
Vivien Lyra Blair joins the cast as a 10-year-old Princess Leia Organa, the legendary Star Wars hero originally played by Carrie Fisher. Luke Skywalker may not be the focus of Obi-Wan’s attention in this series, but we still get to see him playing around the Lars homestead. That’s newcomer Grant Feely stepping into the boots of the iconic Star Wars hero.
Temuera Morrison in Daiyu
Now in Episode 2, Obi-Wan sees a Clone Wars vet on the streets of Daiyu. That former Clone Trooper is played by none other than Temuera Morrison, who also played Jango and Boba Fett; Clone Troopers are all clones of Jango, so this makes sense. The planet Leia was kidnapped to, Daiyu, was inspired by downtown Hong Kong and we see its first appearance in the show.
C-3PO and R2-D2 in Alderaan
We all know the fate of the planet Alderaan; the Death Star blows it up during A New Hope. However, in the first episode of Obi-Wan, we get to see a young Leia on it, who loves watching ships. Sharp eyes can spot C-3PO (played by Anthony Daniels) and R2-D2 in the background of the Alderaan party.
A major step in Palpatine’s scheme was to wipe out the idealistic Jedi knights. The series opens with Order 66, the moment many Jedi were treacherously murdered by Palpatine’s clone troopers but enough survived for the Emperor to set up a death squad of Jedi hunters: the Inquisitors. Among the characters we’ve seen before, Rupert Friend brings to life the moon-faced Grand Inquisitor, while Sung Kang plays the Fifth Brother.
Yes, Hayden Christensen is returning to reprise his iconic role of Anakin Skywalker in Obi-Wan Kenobi. We get glimpses of classic Anakin courtesy of some nightmare prequel recap in Episode 1, but in Episode 2 we are told by Riva that Anakin is indeed alive! As soon as Obi-Wan says the name “Anakin,” we see the legend himself, floating in a bacta tank. His eyes jolt open, and we hear his iconic breathing. We can surely expect to see more of Vader in the upcoming episodes.
We hope that we explained all the Obi-Wan Kenobi Easter Eggs and Details to you. Keep following Retrology for more exciting news and Star Wars content.
