Obi-Wan Kenobi finally delivered a live-action take on the Sith Inquisitors, but it wasn't quite what many fans had been hoping for. Reva's story arc was oddly similar to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's Second Sister, and The Grand Inquisitor didn't exactly translate from animation particularly well. As for the rest, they never clashed with Obi-Wan and brought very little to the table.
Prior to becoming a six-part TV series on Disney+, Obi-Wan Kenobi was going to be a movie. Penned by Stuart Beattie, it mostly played out in similar fashion to what we saw on the streaming service, but there were some noteworthy differences.
While Reva was going to be part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, the plan was for her to be joined by some elite Clone Troopers. "[Reva] had a squad of Stormtrooper Marshals," the writer tells The Direct (via SFFGazette.com). "So, I thought, ‘Yeah, of course, the Stormtroopers have like the equivalent of the U.S. Marshals, right?’ Except that these guys were Clones."
"They were all Temuera Morrison, speaking in his voice, and they were all veterans of the Clone Wars. They all knew Kenobi. They knew these Jedi they were hunting, and they still [had] the biochips in them," Beattie continues. "They did not miss when they shot, and they were absolutely ruthless. There were ten of them. And they were commanded by a guy named Commander Jet. And so they were her squad and they all ended up dying over the course of the story."
The writer would go on to say that he didn't want to include The Grand Inquisitor because he felt that the character's death in Star Wars Rebels robbed his story of any stakes (as fans would know he lived to fight another day). In fairness, the show got everyone talking with that fake-out demise for the villain, so there were definitely ways Beattie could have incorporated him.
Admittedly, the prospect of an evil group of clones is an interesting one, especially as Cody would have joined Ben on Tatooine by this point. However, Lucasfilm has clearly gone in a different direction, with The Bad Batch starting to explain how Clone Troopers were replaced by Stormtroopers relatively quickly after the Empire gained power over the Galaxy.
Do you think these Clones should have joined Reva in battle in Obi-Wan Kenobi?
