Star Wars Fan Theories for Obi Wan Kenobi Episode 5

Fans are expecting numerous theories for Obi Wan Kenobi Episode 5 which they are hoping will come true. The show is ranging from fire bets and the fans guessing their wish list to come true.

  1. Obi Removing himself from the Force:

    A remarkable piece from the Obi-Wan Kenobi promo was Kenobi firing a blaster at an unseen enemies; stormtroopers. Fans would be haste to remember the Episode 3 after Obi defeated General Grievous by shooting at his Heart with a blaster, marking the blasters as “so uncivilized”. The question is why Kenobi used a blaster in the first place. Fans have assumed and theorized that he has segregated himself off from the force with the purpose of keeping Darth Vader and the empire away from tracking him down. In Obi Wan Kenobi Episode 5 we shall see if the theory is true.

  2. Obi-Wan beats Vader again:

    When it was declared that Obi-Wan would have his own series, fans started wondering if Darth Vader would appear or not. They had a strong feeling that he must return. And they were true. Disney announced that not only Darth Vader would return, but he would be portrayed by Hayden Christensen, who had portrayed Anakin Skywalker in the Prequel Trilogy.

  3. Qui-Gon Jinn comes back as Force Ghost in Obi Wan Kenobi Episode 5:

    In Episode 3, before he goes into hiding, Yoda informs Obi-Wan that he has prepared training for him for learning to communicate with the Force Ghosts. Obi is stunned to learn that he will be able to talk with his old master Qui-Gon Jinn again. Maybe, we can see this happening in Obi Wan Kenobi Episode 5.

  4. Other Jedi appears outside of Obi-Wan:

    The trailers have shown that a squad called The Inquisitors will be appearing in the show. Their role is to hunt down any of the remaining Jedi, who may have beared with the Order 66; the order that was to eliminate the Jedi.

  5. Commander Cody is still present at the disposal of the Empire:

    Everyone is unaware with Commander Cody’s untimely fate at the end of the film, because of which fans think that maybe he is working alongside the Empire. It might be possible that Obi Wan crosses paths with him once more and it would be a great plan to keep Morrison in the story, noting his appearances in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.
