Obi-Wan Kenobi Easter Eggs From Episodes 1 & 2 You May Have Missed 

Obi-Wan-Kenobi long awaited solo series is finally here and brings Ewan McGregor’s bearded outcast and the inquisitors to our screens

The new series bridges the gap between the original trilogy and the prequels, taking place 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. We’re in a time period before Star Wars Rebels, and well before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As expected, Obi-Wan (McGregor) is in exile on Tatooine, looking after little Luke Skywalker. 

These are the big Easter eggs, cameos and spoilers you need to know from the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Caution: spoilers ahead for Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 1 and 2

Youngling Helmets From Yoda’s Lightsaber Class And Order 66

Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s Disney+ premiere opens with a flashback to the Jedi Temple massacre from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. A previously unseen Jedi called Minas Velti dies valiantly protecting a class of younglings wearing bulky helmets from the clone trooper onslaught. Palpatine’s “Order 66” command can be heard echoing in the background. The scene adds another tragic perspective to the Jedi Purge. The bulky helmets worn by Obi Wan-Kenobi‘s younglings in this flashback were previously seen during Yoda’s lightsaber training session in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

The Inquisitors

Fans of Star Wars: Rebels or Jedi Fallen Order will recognize these imposing force wielders, but this is the first time they appear in live action. Many people are still unfamiliar with these dark characters. After Order 66 wiped out most of the Jedi, a small handful of force wielders managed to escape and hide throughout the galaxy. Some of the most well-known Jedi that survived are Master Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi himself.

Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader enlisted the help of these dark force wielders to hunt the remaining Jedi. The rule of two only allows for two Sith Lords to be alive at one time, so these hunters are called inquisitors, but are not real Sith Lords. Even though they are not “real Sith,” these Inquisitors are still a force to be reckoned with. In the cartoons they had no trouble giving Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, and even Ahsoka Tano a run for their money.

Veteran Clone Trooper

When Obi-Wan lands in Daiyu, the cyberpunk-ish, he encounters a homeless, veteran clone trooper asking him for some credits so that he can afford a meal. Temuera Morrison appears in this extremely brief, yet important cameo, and the moment is surprising, yet great.

Based on the clone veteran’s armor, he appears to be a part of the 501st Legion, an elite stormtrooper legion under the direct command of Vader. After the Clone Wars ended, the Empire decided to do away with the clones as they were deemed expensive, which offers a commentary on how disposable they were for the Imperials, an aspect that was touched upon in “The Bad Batch.”

Young Luke Toy and Owen Lars’ Gift Reaction Borrows From Star Wars Comic Lore

Obi-Wan works at a meat refinery to earn a meager living and manages to save up enough credits to buy a salvaged T-16 Skyhopper toy for Luke . Owen Lars of course is very upset about Obi-Wan’s attempt to give little Luke a starship toy, throwing the unwanted gift at the Jedi’s feet..” This moment echoes a scene from Marvel’s Star Wars comic books, specifically 2016’s Star Wars Vol. 2 #15 where Kenobi sends Owen supplies and equipment under the pretense of Jawa freebies. The gift aside, Owen blaming Kenobi for Anakin Skywalker’s death in “Part I” broadly follows this same comic confrontation.

During “A New Hope.” we see a grow up Luke playing with a similar toy. This could very well be the same toy gifted by Obi-Wan.

An Unknown Jedi Lightsaber Belt

Aside from kids’ toys and stolen vaporator parts, Teeka’s salvaged wares include a Jedi lightsaber belt. These leather accessories were worn by most Jedi during the Star Warsprequel era, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn and Anakin Skywalker. This particular garment was taken from the ship of Nari – a Jedi introduced in Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 1

Burying Lightsabers On Tatooine

Obi-Wan Kenobi meets a fellow escaped Jedi called Nari, who shows his lightsaber as proof of friendship. Rivaling post-ROTJ Luke Skywalker in terms of Jedi acting like dicks, Obi-Wan advises Nari to bury the weapon deep in Tatooine’s sands, and “Part I” later reveals Kenobi already did exactly that upon beginning his Tatooine exile. The image of Anakin’s lightsaber being consigned to the desert foreshadows the blade’s ultimate fate, with Rey burying it in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Callback to Episode IV Leia Hologram

With Leia is kidnapped by space criminal, the Organa Family call upon Obi-Wan Kenobi for help. The distressed couple don’t quite say, “Help us Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re our only hope,” but the transmission isn’t far off. The message is intentionally close to Leia’s iconic A New Hope recording.

Reminiscence of Padme

Druing leia’s rescue, Obi-Wan doesn’t say Padme’s name, but it’s clear what he meant when he said that younger Leia is just as fearless and stubborn as “she” was. It’s a heartbreaking scene for fans of the Star Wars Prequels.

Kumail Nanjiani plays a con-man named Haja, who is pretending to be a Jedi to help people for compensation. During one of his meeting, we see a mother and a child.

C-3PO and R2-D2 Make Obi-Wan Kenobi Cameos

During the Organas’ party , we see C-3PO chatting to guests , and an astromech identical to R2-D2 serving drinks to guests. They are not together. If you remember their memories were wiped out at the end of Episode 3 and makes sense why they might not remember each other.
