DISCOVER THE EASTER-EGGS IN OBI-WAN KENOBI EPISODE 6 ON DISNEY PLUS!
Disney Plus now has Obi-Wan Kenobi! Continue reading if you want to find the easter eggs from Episode 6! “You are the future,” Obi-Wan says to Leia at the start of Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6.
The show’s placement in the Star Wars timeline, between the prequels and the original trilogy, has always posed the risk of stifling Ewan McGregor’s return, and this timely nod to Leia was bound to raise some eyebrows.
But there was never any need to be concerned. Obi-Wan Kenobi concludes with an upbeat episode packed with fan service, well-deserved emotional interactions, as well as a lightsaber battle to remember.
Season 2 is now available for those who want to know when it will be released. Otherwise, here are all the easter eggs from Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6!
WHAT ARE THE EASTER-EGGS IN EPISODE 6 OF OBI-WAN KENOBI?
THE IDEAL STAR WARS STAR DESTROYER
Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer pursues Obi-Wan Kenobi’s escape ship in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6.
The image of a Star Destroyer gliding through the frame is a nod to the iconic opening scene of Star Wars: A New Hope. Discover what Vader and Obi-Wan did between the end of Season 1 and the events of A New Hope.
LEIA HOLSTER, PRINCESS
While both are still aboard the Path escape ship, Obi-Wan hands Leia the blaster holster that Tala was wearing.
This item is nearly identical to the holster worn by Leia in the 2019 Star Wars: Age of Rebellion comic.
LUKE SKYWALKER AND THE EMPIRE RETURN
When Uncle Owen and the villainous Beru discover that Reva is stalking Luke Skywalker, they take him into hiding.
“I’m not afraid,” Luke declared defiantly to his aunt. This line perfectly echoes Luke’s defiant attitude toward Yoda during their training on Dagobah in The Empire Strikes Back.
OBI-WAN WILL COMPLETE “WHAT HE MUST COMPLETE.”
Darth Vader asks if his former master has come to destroy him to save the scriptwriters even more work. Kenobi responds, “I will do what I have to do,” and their battle begins.
This particular spoken excerpt is from Star Wars: Episode III, and it is delivered by Obi-Wan Kenobi just before Mustafa’s duel with Darth Vader.
OBI-WAN’S SABER GETTING OUT POSE
The Jedi strikes his famous Soresu lightsaber pose, as seen in the Star Wars prequel films as well as Star Wars: The Clone Wars before the Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6 duel begins.
OBI-WAN’S THINKING VOICES
Darth Vader traps Obi-Wan under a pile of lunar rubble, and he begins to reminisce about key events in Anakin’s life.
“This is the end for you, master,” the Jedi hears. “Admit you’ve been beaten,” “I see through the Jedi’s lies,” and “I don’t fear the dark side.”
Rey mocks the stereotypical belief that the Force is all about “lifting rocks” in the final moments of Star Wars: The Last Jedi by lifting a ton of rocks and saving the day.
Obi-Wan Kenobi defeats Darth Vader by lifting an entire weight of boulders into the air and hurling them at the beleaguered Sith.
LUKE WAS TOLD BY BEN THAT VADER KILLED HIS FATHER.
Star Wars has never fully explained why Alec Guinness’ Ben Kenobi told Luke Skywalker that Darth Vader murdered his father, but this easter egg from Obi-Wan Kenobi fills in the blanks.
Obi-Wan expresses his guilt over Anakin’s fate after their duel on an uninhabited moon, but Vader, as if to relieve his old master, admits that he was the one who killed “Anakin Skywalker.”
THE SCAR OF VADER
Anakin’s exposed face bears a large scar across his head when Luke Skywalker unmasks his father in the final moments of Return of the Jedi.
Because the wound is in the same location as Darth Vader’s laceration in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6, it’s possible that it was caused by Old Ben himself.
McDiarmid reprises his role as Emperor Sheev Palpatine, who appears through a hologram to question Obi-Wan Kenobi’s obsession with his student. Yes, it was a surprise, but it was a welcome one.
MESSAGE FROM LEIA TO OBI-WAN
This Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6 easter egg goes to great lengths to explain why, in A New Hope, Princess Leia sends a message begging Obi-Wan to help her.
In “Part VI,” as the two friends say their goodbyes, Kenobi promises to return if Leia ever needs assistance from a “tired old man.” That’s exactly what he’ll be doing in about 9 years.
After an entire season of attempting to contact his late Jedi master, Ben finally sees Qui-Gon Jinn manifest as a ghost in Episode 6 of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Liam Neeson reprises his role as Qui-Gon, and his ghost is surprisingly upbeat even though the talented young boy he asked the Jedi Order to coach is currently tearing the galaxy apart beneath the stars. Darth Vader’s characteristics…
