We got incoming Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi spoilers! Yes, the latest news regarding the upcoming Disney Plus series involves the appearance of another prequel character.
Bingwatchthis confirms, “According to Making Star Wars, Jimmy Smits will be returning as Senator Bail Organa, making this his fourth appearance in the franchise after playing the Senator in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and Rogue One.”
For those unfamiliar Senator Bail Organa was a key player in the Star Wars prequels, specifically Revenge of the Sith as he adopts Padme Amidala’s daughter Leia. He and his wife Queen Breha Organa raise Leia on the planet Alderaan while Leia’s twin brother Luke lives on Tatooine with Owen and Beru Lars.
Organa survives the Purge, keeping both Master Yoda and Master Kenobi’s whereabouts a secret. Since the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be taking place after Revenge of the Sith, it’s safe to say that perhaps Organa and Kenobi meet from time to time.
This Star Wars prequel character will be appearing in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series!
Kenobi will be residing on Tatooine where Luke is being raised. As I’m sure he’ll be keeping a watchful eye on the young Skywalker, he’ll also be hiding from spies for the growing Empire and perhaps partaking in the beginnings of the Rebellion.
There is no doubt that either we will be seeing a young Leia on Alderaan or Organa himself will speak about her in the series. But we don’t know the specifics of his role just yet.
But thankfully we won’t have to wait that long as the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be arriving to Disney Plus on May 25, 2022.
