Spoiler Warning: Obi-Wan Kenobi Parts I-IIIObi Wan Kenobi has wrung out the tears, screams, laughter, and sobs of its viewers so far, and that’s only three episodes! The show is classic star wars through and through, but it successfully mixes, merges and weaves together many key elements star wars spin-offs and additions to the original trilogies. There’s a lot going on in this show, even beyond seeing beloved actor Ewan McGreggor once again don the brown Jedi robes and that luscious beard.
The series has unlimited possibilities. Everything could happen next! After the smashing introduction of Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) and the ensuing emotionally charged and infuriating fight between the former padawan and the master, audiences are everywhere on the edge of their seats to see what revelations Obi Wan Kenobi still holds. This The fight scene accomplished the reintroduction of James Earl Jones as Darth Vader. However, we saw a rusty Obi-Wan running away and hiding from the monster he helped create that he’s not yet ready to face. Fans are guaranteed to take part in the lightsaber battle of the ages at some point in the second half of the series, and we couldn’t be more excited.
It’s certainly clear that Anakin has been thinking a lot about how he’s going to get his revenge for quite some time, almost immediately diving in and dragging Obi-Wan into a sea of fire as soon as he finds him. The revelation that Obi-Wan had a brother before Anakin became like a brother makes their deadly rivalry even more heartbreaking and emotional. Waiting for the next big heartbreaking battle, here’s all easter eggscrossovers, links and cameos that the series has given us so far!
Obi-Wan Kenobi Easter Eggs and Cameos
There are a variety of cultural crossovers, clone wars Easter eggs and cameos that are, in some cases, even more shocking than Massachusetts comedian Bill Burr’s appearance in The Mandalorian. The Flea, bassist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers have fifteen minutes star wars fame has been a marvel. Indeed, if the Red Hot Chili Peppers were a star wars cannon band, they would likely have a similar reputation and appearance to Flea in her role.
Also, as the precarious and treacherous transport driver Kenobi and Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) must board to reach an off-planet ship, by Zach Braff the performance can be admired under all that awesome alien makeup. Braff is an increasingly accomplished director after his successful run on the hit medical show Scrubs. Another delightful, real-life connection to the series is that Obi-Wan encounters a saleswoman on the streets of a planet from which he must rescue Princess Leia, then escape with her to safety in Alderan. This woman explains to Obi-Wan that there is no hope of him finding missing young girls, as she was once “someone’s daughter”, too. In fact, she is Ewan McGregor’s Real Daughterand we can’t help but be shocked that they shared this important scene together.
One of the most exciting Easter egg collections for fans is the scene where Kenobi and Leia are smuggled by an undercover resistance fighter in a secret bunker, through which many outlaw Jedi have passed before them. Fans can enjoy even more evidence of that, in a post-Jon Favreau’s entry in the star wars world, clone wars is most definitely canon. On the wall is written, in a heartbreaking way, “Quinlan was here,” which is a reference to the clone wars Jedi Quinlan Vos. During this time, the Bad batch Kanan Jarrus is also named, alluding to what he became. It is unknown if a live appearance of any of these characters will be made.
What other links can we expect from Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Kenobi does not hesitate to eloquently link so many star wars series, novels and spin-offs, and it is truly a dream come true for fans. What all of this to, we hope, is the reveal of the survival of a certain Jedi wielding a purple Order 66 lightsaber, but we won’t name any names. We’ll say that a return of said Jedi would likely shake the very foundation of civilization, being the ultimate bonding, crossover, easter egg, and/or “gotchya” moment in television history. It is certainly possible that we can achieve our wish.
The certain A-list actor who plays said Jedi has already expressed interest in returning to the franchise in a massive way. We’ve already seen around 98% of the footage revealed in the series’ trailers alone. We even saw Obi-Wan and Anakin/Darth Vader have their first encounter after Kenobi took the high ground. We have seen the Reva of the Empire (Moses Ingram) in all her glory. We actually saw more than any of the trailers that were betrayed to us. What is happening now is absolutely unimaginable.
