The young Jedi Leia
Balance to the force
So, what do we know about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Well, there's a superb teaser that managed to give very little away. Luckily, director Deborah Chow was a little more forthcoming in our interviews with her. We can also confirm that the Clone Wars character the Grand Inquisitor will be hunting down Jedi, and that a young Luke Skywalker will make an appearance – though the extent of his role remains to be seen as Obi-Wan will leave Tatooine.
When Obi-Wan Kenobi was first announced, most of the Star Wars fandom assumed that this show's focus would be on young Luke Skywalker and Ben's mission to protect him from afar. And that is the case, at first. Early on, Obi-Wan watches Luke with some not-at-all creepy binoculars, and shares tense words with the boy's Uncle Owen too.
But then, something unexpected happens. Out of nowhere, our perspective suddenly shifts to a young Leia Organa, who's living out her life as a reluctant royal on the planet Alderaan.
