The Star Wars, Obi-Wan Disney+ series is still a ways off, but we’re getting excited already, because of course we are, and these ten characters are a big reason why.
The raving success that was The Mandalorian has set the standard incredibly high for Disney’s oncoming stable of Star Wars series on Disney+. While Season 2 of Baby Yoda and Daddalorian is the nearest return to the galaxy far away, there’s more on the horizon in the form of Cassian Andor’s series and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s series.
There isn’t a lot to be said about the Obi-Wan series yet. All we know is that Ewan McGregor will be playing Obi-Wan again to follow-up on his portrayal of the iconic Jedi in the prequels. None of the other cast has been announced (though they’re supposedly casting for kid Luke now), which leaves plenty of room for speculation.
And, as I love speculating, I have been dissecting what we may see in this series. But now, I want to look at who we might see.
While Din Djarin was a huge success as a character, that show would not have been as effective without Baby Yoda, Cara Dune, Greef Karga, Kuill and IG-11.
So the question is, who will be Obi-Wan’s Baby Yoda? Who will be his IG-11? With nothing else to ground this excitement in but rampant speculation, let’s feed into our curiosity and explore some of the characters we may see appearing on Tatooine.
For context, this show will take place just after the Revenge of the Sith, with Obi-Wan living in exile, watching over Luke Skywalker as the rebellious child he figures to be. Most of this speculation will come from context clues from the Skywalker saga, as well as the graphic novels that dealt with the journals of Obi-Wan.
And so, with that in mind, let’s talk cast of characters. We’ll start at the back.
