Obi-Wan Kenobi sees Quinlan Vos Name

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series has dropped on Disney+. While fans are only going to be treated to six episodes by the conclusion of the series, so far, it has been absolutely everything that audiences could have ever hoped for. The long-awaited return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader has been nearly two decades in the making and has been both actors’ first return to the franchise in as many years. So far in the series, fans have been treated to more content and backstory than they ever could have hoped for, and there is still more to come.

While audiences can hope and pray that the second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi will be coming at some point in the future, there’s still ample opportunity for other canon Star Wars characters to make appearances in the show. So far, we’ve been treated to showings from Senator Organa, C3PO and R2D2, and even little Princess Leia, but there are plenty of others who could turn up, especially from the Clone Wars

animated series. Obi-Wan and Anakin were the main characters of the show. Still, the plethora of creatures and characters introduced in the series could easily find their way into Obi-Wan Kenobi. Here are the ones we’re holding out hope for.

It isn’t likely, but we can still dream. Fans of the Clone Wars series will be incredibly familiar with Ahsoka as she was the tertiary character behind Obi-Wan and Anakin, serving as Anakin’s padawan learner. Sadly, after being falsely accused of a crime that she didn’t commit and being turned on by the Jedi Order, Ahsoka left the temple in order to make her own path in the galaxy.

While most people would consider this a perfect reason for Ahsoka to turn up in the live-action series (and ordinarily, it would), fans of the other Star Wars animated show, Rebels, know why it’s doubtful we’ll get an appearance from Ahsoka. During a particular episode of the series, Ahsoka returns to confront Anakin as Darth Vader, and the two square off against each other, much like Vader and Obi-Wan did in episode three of the live-action show. The moment was the first time that Ahsoka and Anakin ever crossed lightsabers and the scene ended with fences still being unmended.

So, while Ahsoka obviously has unfinished business with Vader, the emotional impact of bringing Anakin’s former padawan into the fray this far into the series would take away from the emotional investment the audience currently has in Obi-Wan Kenobi. And that’s the last thing fans want to happen to the titular character, especially since Ahsoka is getting her own live-action Disney+ series.

This character is far more likely to show up, mainly because his name has already been mentioned in the series. Most standard Star Wars fans might not recognize this name, but die-hard fans will know the character from his brief appearance in Clone Wars. Quinlan Voss was a former member of the Jedi Order, just like Obi-Wan and Yoda, but he had a particular skill in tracking. In fact, he was so in touch with the Force and his tracking skills that he could use the Force to tell where a person had been. This ability made him a Jedi of great renown and a heavy target for the Inquisitors following Order 66.
