Will Obi-Wan and Ahsoka Appear in Andor?
I’ll admit it. I waited. A while. To post anything about Obi-Wan showing up in the Star Wars Disney+ Andor series.
Frankly, I am glad.
That’s because a trusted source added that Ahsoka Tano could also make an appearance.
And, thanks to The DisInsider’s (another trusted source) Dempsey Pilot who aggregated the news, I feel pretty good posting about it:
[T]oday our friends over at The Illuminerdi have exclusively revealed that Obi-Wan Kenobi will cross paths with Andor. While it isn’t entirely clear how the two could meet, the site theorizes that Kenobi’s relationship with Senator Organa could be key. The rebellion is, after all, what links Organa and Andor… In addition to this scoop, Corey Van Dyke, one of the hosts of the Star Wars news show Kessel Run Transmissions, tweeted out that Kenobi wouldn’t be alone in appearing in Andor.
Corey Van Dyke and Kessel Run Transmissions keep us in the know.

Earlier this week, in an exclusive, Sean McLaughlin of The Illuminerdi posted:
The fact that Obi-Wan will have a sizeable role in Andor shows that Lucasfilm is making an effort to connect all of its Disney+ series. Obi-Wan had a close relationship with Senator Bail Organa, so maybe he will be a key contributor of intel for the growing rebellion. Will the Andor storyline correlate at all with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? Time will tell.
However, there are “tells” that might give hints as to what is coming.
As mentioned above, Andor and Senator Organa (Leia’s adoptive father) are acquainted; as are Obi-Wan (who watches over Luke) and Organa. Also of note, Andor and Ahsoka were both “Fulcrum” agents – deep cover Rebel agents going into trouble; deep into trouble.
How it all fits together, and how Obi-Wan might play a role in the Disney+ Andor series – well, we’ll have to wait and see.
