Toward the end of Revenge of the Sith, amidst the devastating aftermath of Order 66, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi broadcasts a message to all surviving Jedi across the galaxy. In it, he warns them not to return to Coruscant and to remain hidden.

Obi-Wan’s message has shown up in other Star Wars stories since its debut, which means we could hear it again in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series.

We didn’t hear the full message spoken until Star Wars Rebels, when Kanan’s holocron played back the recording as a message of hope for the Ghost Crew and their forthcoming adventures. The entire message reads as follows:

"This is Master Obi Wan Kenobi. I regret to report that both our Jedi Order and the Republic have fallen with a dark shadow of the Empire rising to take their place. This message is a warning and a reminder for any surviving Jedi. Trust in The Force. Do not return to the Temple…that time has past. And our future is uncertain. We will each be challenged. Our trust. Our faith. Our friendships. But we must persevere. And in time, a new hope will emerge. May the Force be with you, always."

The upcoming series, which takes place about 10 years after ROTS, will feature Obi-Wan Kenobi watching over Luke Skywalker, doing his best to avoid detection from the Inquisitors, and so much more that has yet to be revealed.

The same way Order 66 has come back to haunt Star Wars fans time and again across various TV series, Obi-Wan’s message could make a return. It likely lingers in his memory, and the show looks as though it might deal greatly with the former Jedi Master confronting his traumatic past.

There’s still so much about the show we don’t know. But endless possibilities do mean there are plenty of surprises just waiting to reveal themselves to us.

Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor with appearances by Hayden Christensen and Kumail Nanjiani and is directed by Deborah Chow, who previously directed an episode of The Mandalorian. The series is set to premiere May 25, 2022 exclusively on Disney+.
