3. An Appearance (Or Cameo) From Luke And/Or Leia

Since the Obi-Wan series will be set after Revenge of the Sith, you cannot have a show without some reference to the Skywalker twins. We mentioned before that a casting call has allegedly been put out for a blond haired boy and a brunette girl. We know Luke inherited his father’s blonde from when he was a child while Leia was always a brunette like her mother.

So, how would the twins fit into the narrative of the main show? Well, there’s a few ways this could do this. The first way would include a cameo or communication with Bail Organa, Leia’s adoptive father. We know Obi-Wan is keeping tabs on Luke by living on Tatooine. Organa adopted Leia at birth and is raising her to be the Princess of Alderaan.

The second way they pull off a Luke or Leia appearance is holograms. Perhaps Beru and Organa send Obi-Wan updates on their respective twin. It might be a little easier for Obi-Wan to see Luke as he lives close to the Lars homestead, but Leia would be different given her adoptive father’s role in the growing Rebel Alliance.

Also, the twins can’t interact until A New Hope and as far as we know, Luke doesn’t leave Tatooine until then. However, we’re not sure whether Leia ever goes to Tatooine at any point during her childhood.
