To be sure not to have passed next to something that might turn out to be important !

WARNING: this article contains spoilers concerning episode 3 of the series Obi-Wan Kenobi. Do not continue reading if you do not want to read it.

1) Darth Vader and his signature armor

For the first time in live-action, we witness the process of dressing Darth Vader, piece by piece, of his iconic armor. We also find that it is indeed Hayden Christensen who plays the character in question, while being heavily made up.

2) DARK VADER’S CASTLE ON MUSTAFAR

We see, in the first scenes of the episode, Darth Vader’s castlealso called “Vador’s Sanctuary” or “Vador’s Personal Abode”, which was the residence of the Sith Lord Darth Vader during the reign of the Galactic Empire. The castle was located on the volcanic planet of Mustafar, the location of his duel against Obi-Wan Kenobi and a Sith temple. It was built above a Sith cave.

3) a well-known replica

Leia, during his spaceship journey with Obi-Wan, asks the latter if he can use the Force to shorten the travel time. Obi-Wan explains to him that it is impossible, since it is not “not how the Force works”. This line is not unknown to us since it has previously been said by Han Solo in The force awakens.

4) Darth Vader’s voice IS PERFORMED BY JAMES EARL JONES

In the original trilogy Star Wars, James Earl Jones performs the voice of Darth Vader. It’s a pleasure for fans of the franchise to find him after so long.

5) An R5 astromech droid on Mapuzo

As Obi-Wan and Leia arrive on the surface of Mapuzo, two droids are busy in the background. We then notice an astromech R5, which wears exactly the same orange design as the most famous droid of this line, R5-D4. A nice little reference?

6) an intriguing vision

When Obi-Wan Kenobi has a vision of Anakin Skywalker on Mapuzo, the latter is dressed in the same costume that the fallen Jedi wore at the end of Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Indeed, at this precise moment, Obi-Wan has not yet seen Darth Vader’s black armor and therefore cannot imagine Anakin only in its former guise.

7) the inquisitorius fortress

We also discover in this episode the Inquisitorius Fortress, the headquarters of Darth Vader’s inquisitors when they are not killing each other. Based on the ocean moon Nur, this imposing building debuted in the Star Wars universe within the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

8) several famous ships

As Reva strolls through the hangar of the Fortress Inquisitoriuswe can see several famous ships behind her, such as TIE fighters and the classic gray Lambda shuttleused by Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.

9) a zach braff cameo

When Obi-Wan and Leia arrive on the mining planet of Mapuzo, they go to the meeting point provided by Haja Estree, but no one shows up. An alien driver passes by, and Leia decides it’s better to hitchhike than wander aimlessly on this strange planet. This alien driver, named Freck, is played by no one else than Zach Braffand it’s easy to miss the star’s surprise cameo Scrubsas he is unrecognizable as Freck.

Zach Braff.

10) Zoom in on Imperial Probe Droids

The Imperial probe droids used by Reva to get hold of Obi-Wan Kenobi are the same as those seen in The Empire Strikes Back.

11) an easter egg about reva

Although it unfolds 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Siththe first episode ofObi-Wan Kenobi opens with a startling flashback to Order 66 from the perspective of five young people.

Although this sequence is a stark reminder of traumatic events of that night, she also sparked fans’ curiosity about her narrative focus. young children and their Jedi Master are unfamiliar to fans and apparently have no connection to Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker or Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi. This gave rise to speculations that one of the children is actually Reva, the third sister, played by Moses Ingram. However, an easter egg present in the episode refers again to these young people, and in a scene that contains Reva, Furthermore. This scene occurs when Reva addresses the other inquisitors.

If most of the objects that we discover on the sides are saber handles carefully positioned on red-colored surfaces, at least two helmets are also on display, and these are the same ones the children wore in the opening scene of the series. Even if they weren’t theirs, this image shows us once again that these children will be important for the outcome of the series (and, as such, for the reveal about Reva, most certainly).

12) references out of star wars canon

First, surprisingly enough, Obi-Wan Kenobi mentions in this episode the existence of a biological brother. Obi-Wan’s brother was never featured in official Star Wars canon, but george lucas originally planned to reveal Owen Lars as Obi-Wan’s long-lost brother in Return of the Jedi.

Afterwards, Leia asks if Obi-Wan is his “real” father, to which the Jedi responds: “I wish I could say I am”. Obi-Wan is understood to simply mean that Leia is a lovely child and that any father would be better than Darth Vader, but that’s all the same. a strange thing to say regarding Anakin’s wife. This line could allude to the Anakin-Kenobi-Padmé love triangle, cut from the trilogy.

13) a place we already knew

Tala Durith reveals that the “path” protecting Jedi and Force-sensitive children from the clutches of the Empire ends at a place called Jabiim. This place was first mentioned in 2003 in a comic Dark Horse Republic. Although the region has already been mentioned in canonical documents, the series Obi-Wan Kenobi brings the Outer Rim into reality.

14) QUINLAN VOS IS MENTIONED during the episode

When he speaks with the Tala interpreted by Indira Varma, Obi-Wan Kenobi sees engravings of people they have given new identities. One of these engravings was made by Quinlan Vos himself, a character who was a Jedi close to the dark side during The Clone Wars.

More precisely, Quinlan Vos was a Kiffar, Jedi Knight during the last years of the Galactic Republic. He was a student of the Jedi Master Tholme, and he will then have the opportunity to teach in turn a Twi’lek named Aayla Secura with whom he will have a romantic relationship. Quinlan Voss survived Order 66 and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series confirmed that he is still on the light side, helping to pass young people by cheating.

15) JEDI ORDER LOGO

When Reva stops and looks at the carvings on the wall, she notices a logo. This logo is the symbol of the Jedi Order. Presumably the reason she stops and looks the logo of the Jedi Order is possibly because it could turn out that Reva was one of the surviving young Jedi seen at the beginning of episode 1 of the series Obi-Wan Kenobi.
