Over the weekend we covered a leak that featured a few confirmed characters that will appear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney Plus, and now today two more have been added to the list.
Spoilers for anyone trying to avoid any and all things Kenobi, even if the information turns out to be false.
Alright, so like I said we got strong confirmation from the leak-verse that Princess Leia and the Fifth Brother (Sung Kang) will be in the Kenobi series along with other characters from Rebels. These other characters are unknown, but it sounds like some will be known Inquistors like the Fifth Brother.
Anyway, today, LRMOnline is reporting that two other known Star Wars characters will appear in Kenobi, and these two are none other than C-3P0 and R2-D2. If the Leia leak is true, which many leakers are confirming it is, then the droid bros could definitely appear in the series thanks to them being in Captain Antilles care, who works for Bail Organa, Leia’s adoptive Father. This would allow them to be in the show without screwing with too much canon from A New Hope, because one would think that they won’t have a chance to interact with Kenobi directly, allowing their first meeting since the fall of the Republic to still be fresh in A New Hope.
Based on these two leaks I’m definitely digging where the show’s narrative may be headed, and the fact that they keep dropping so quickly means the show’s production is humming along and some of the meat is being leaked from the set for us to speculate on, which we will surely do on tomorrow’s show.
