First off, I have to apologize that this is not the best quality clip out there but it does show the entrance of a certain Jedi into the ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ universe. Now I haven’t seen any official announcements that he would be part of the cast, so this might be spoiler territory if you haven’t been following the news from the show.
The thing about this teaser is first off, it’s in French and the second is we don’t know if this certain Jedi will be an active a member of the series as he is showing up as a hologram. It could be a single incident or it could be that he’ll be making ongoing appearances, in hologram form if nothing else.
So who is it? Well if you are still reading, then you don’t mind the potential spoiler — the Jedi we’re talking about is Obi-Wan Kenobi! In the trailer below at the 8 second mark, you’ll see him pop up and say “Que la force soit avec toi,” the French version of “May the Force be with you.”
In the cameo (and hopefully more in the series) he will be voiced by James Arnold Taylor who also voiced Obi-Wan in ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘. Check it out below:
“Star Wars Rebels” continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.”
Neat, huh? Does this mean Obi-Wan will be at the point in time where he is trying to help the rebellion before he fully retires to Tatooine? Could this be the message Obi-Wan recorded for other Jedi to stay away from Coruscant in ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith’? We’ll have awhile to find out. Honestly, I hope they find a way to make it more than just a single cameo!
Are you happy to hear about the return of Kenobi even if its only for one scene? Share your thoughts below and may the force be with you!
