The highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ will begin streaming on May 25th, 2022 and as we approach that release date, new details for the show continue to surface online! We warn the following information does contain spoilers for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
According to SWNN, a reputable fan site covering Star Wars news, sources close to the Kenobi production have provided key plot details and information on which Star Wars characters will appear in the new series. As per their report:
We have learned that Obi-Wan will have an important mission in the series that involve none other than her highnessness, Princess Leia! As we know, the Kenobi series takes place 10 years after Revenge of the Sith, so this will be a 10-year-old Leia in the series.
Additionally, we’ve learned that the princess managed to get herself into trouble, even at this young age. From what we’ve heard, it appears that the princess is being held prisoner in a Cantina-like establishment where we will see a healthy mixture of new and familiar creatures.
Of course, Obi-Wan’s task will be to rescue the princess. With a young Leia’s significant involvement in the series, we know that her adopted parents will also play a role. As we all know, Bail Organa adopted Leia after her birth, so actor Jimmy Smits who played the Senator in the prequels and returned for 2016’s Rogue One, will also make an important appearance.
The inclusion and prominent role of Princess Leia was previously corroborated by Cinelinx.
