OBI-WAN KENOBI: Will Ahsoka Tano And Boba Fett Make Cameo Appearances In The Disney+ Series?

Given Obi-Wan Kebobi's unique place in the Star Wars timeline, fans are holding out hope for some big cameos, and key members of the show's creative team have now responded to questions about those...

Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place at an intriguing time in the Star Wars franchise's history. Set squarely between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the story unfolds roughly around the same time as Star Wars Rebels and Jedi: Fallen Order, leaving fans to wonder what sort of cameos we could see. Thinking about it, the show would be a perfect place to pick up with Ahsoka Tano, right?

"Given the nature of our characters, the strongest connective tissue is to the prequels for us," director Deborah Chow says, reigning in fan expectations while ultimately giving very little away. "Because in large part, that's where our characters are coming from and that's where their stories started. So really the prequels are sort of the most connected to our series."

The Clone Wars is a big part of that era, of course, but the filmmaker was quick to caution that, like The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi is more likely to deliver subtle crossovers and teases than actual character appearances. "Obviously I came from The Mandalorian, so a lot of that DNA is in me," she says. "And a lot of my Jedi masters, with John Favreau and Dave Filoni, are also just sort of embedded in me now, but I wasn't looking to tie in necessarily anything. It was just trying to tell the story with integrity to the character, and so that was the connection to the prequels."

EW (via SFFGazette.com) also asked if we could see a younger Boba Fett in the show. After all, he was there when his father battled Obi-Wan, and it's not outside the realm of possibility that they could cross paths on Tatooine (even if this story does take place years before the bounty hunter rules the planet).

Again, Obi-Wan Kenobi writer Joby Harold looked to temper expectations. "From the beginning, we've all thought of this as its own unique story," he explains. "I had always thought of it as its own chapter in bigger canon between the prequels and the original trilogy. There was a story that hadn't been told, which to me was sort of episode 3-and-a-half. And so within that vacuum, I've personally been thinking about it as its own close-ended story, whilst knowing that it's already connected to the past and connected to what's coming. But wherever possible, I've thought of it that way, as opposed to it existing within a larger tapestry of the other shows that are coming out. So it's its own story."

We're sure Obi-Wan Kenobi will feature some surprises, and even with all those leaks and rumours doing the rounds, Lucasfilm will likely find ways to blow us all away (you need only look at Luke Skywalker's return in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett). 

We'll obviously find out when the show's first two episodes arrive on Disney+ on May 27.
