This article contains spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi introduced several new characters that would be fun to see again in future shows. Here are five who deserve a spin-off.
As one of the best new characters to be introduced to the Star Wars universe, Reva’s story is far from finished. At the conclusion of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Reva had just turned away from Vader and the Inquisitors, ready to begin a life where she is free from her guilt at surviving Order 66 while her fellow younglings were killed.
A spinoff could explore the ways she begins to heal from her trauma and begin to make a positive difference in the galaxy. Maybe she even joins The Path or another organization that is beginning to rebel against the Empire.
Roken was introduced to the show as a smuggler working for The Path alongside Tala. His past is largely unknown, but he mentioned that his wife was Force-sensitive and that she was found by the Inquisitors. A spin-off could explore his life after the fall of the Jedi Order and how he came to work for The Path, possibly by using flashbacks.
In the final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Roken states: “I’m just getting started.” His future as a leader within The Path and the larger Rebellion seems like a great starting point for a new series.
Haja’s humor and proclivity for deception would make for an entertaining show. Many questions remain about Haja’s time as a con artist with a heart of gold. Exploring his work as a fake Jedi could give a comedic twist to Star Wars’ normally serious tone.
The growth he experienced after his meeting with Obi-Wan show he would also make a compelling character to follow during the time of the Rebellion against the Empire.
We have had several glimpses of the Grand Inquisitor in Star Wars: Rebels and Obi-Wan Kenobi, but he has always been pulling strings in the background. His intelligence and talent for strategy have been proven many times, so it would be fascinating to view the conflict from his perspective.
By focusing more on the villain, we would get a better look at the experiences of the Inquisitors, hopefully allowing more depth and humanity to be brought to characters, as we were able to see with Reva.
Though Tala unfortunately died during Obi-Wan Kenobi, she was a strong character with an interesting past. In a spin-off, we could learn more about what it was like working inside the Empire and her double life as a leader of The Path.
A show would also provide more information about NED-B and reveal how he became so close to Tala. With these two brave characters at the helm, the show would be certain to succeed.
