I was thinking it could only be a voice cameo, as The Clone Wars established Qui-gon only appears as a Force ghost on Mortis. Other than that, he’s a classic disembodied voice, and I don’t mind that at all. It would contribute to the sense of Ben’s isolation if his only company is a voice with no body he hears in his head.
As for the overall plot of this show, I’m betting someone (possibly Moses Ingram’s character - she mentioned something about ‘playing with lightsabers’ on her instagram earlier, although it might be nothing it could mean she’s an Imperial Inquisitor) will find out about Luke, and Obi-wan will have to pursue them. That’s the only way he’d leave the planet and potentially come into contact with Vader.
I still have massive reservations about this ‘rematch’ they’re teasing, but I think I’m beginning the period of slow acceptance. I want to be excited for this show, I just need to hear more about what direction it’s taking. It has the potential to make the original trilogy and Obi-wan’s story more compelling, but it also has the potential to fuck everything up.
That could work and would be cool! I was just reading a thread on Reddit and saw someone however comment:
“From A Certain Point of View anthology book for ANH Qui-Gon appears to Obi-Wan. Qui-Gon explains that he has continued to grow in his understanding of the ability, even after death. While he can initially only contact the minds of the living as a disembodied voice, he later becomes tangible enough to interact with the physical world.”
So maybe he’ll be able to interact with Qui-Gon in physical form. It wouldn’t be a bad thing to see but I definitely hope they address it and don’t leave it to just the novel to explain why he now can.
That’s very interesting. I could definitely see that.
Same. I have very mixed feelings about it as well. I wonder if they could even pull from the fight on Kijimi and have them fight in a way similar to Rey and Kylo but don’t actually have them meet in the flesh. Maybe instead we’ll see more of the fight on Mustafar in flashbacks. Like parts we didn’t see when we were cut back to Yoda and Palpatine.
It should be interesting. My only real other hope is we see the confrontation alluded to in A New Hope when Obi-Wan talks about how Owen didn’t approve of Anakin following him down the idealistic crusade. It’s only subtly alluded to in Attack of the Clones.
