7. Jabba the Hutt (and his posse)

Who doesn’t love Jabba? I mean, in like a “I really hate him, but he’s interesting and unique and iconic” kind of way. There is conjecture in the graphic novels that Obi-Wan makes trips to Jabba’s palace to seek employment. But whether he does in the show or not, it is safe to say that since the show takes place on Tatooine, probably exclusively so, that Jabba and his posse will be used in some capacity.

He is, after all, the closest thing to law and order that the desert planet has. For better or worse (but mostly worse).

There are so many possibilities opened up by Jabba’s inclusion, mainly the subsequent inclusion of some iconic bounty hunters that will most definitely be appearing on this list. Whether they end up hunting Obi-Wan or not, they’ll factor in in some way. Even if only as eye candy if Obi-Wan makes a trip to Jabba’s palace.

Also, shout-out to Bib Fortuna, who I hope we get to see again too.
