Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer

The internets says the inquisitor in the trailer is Riva, played by Moses Ingram, so it's not the person I thought she was (unless she has performed at the Globe Theatre London and isn't credited for it on IMDb).

What surprised me is how much was drawn from the computer game Jedi: Fallen Order, specifically the Fortress Inquisitorius on the water moon of Nur.
I'm not surprised; anything produced under Disney is considered canon. This includes comic books, novels, and video games.

It's not that it's canon (we have already had BD), it's that there is so much of it.
Well if the Inquisitors are playing a large role in this story, it makes sense to use the established settings and background for them. Plus, fan service has an appeal to a portion of the audience.

First time I'm cautiously excited for anything Star Wars since watching the original movies.
Full disclosure I have not seen 7-9, Solo or the Mando.
Mando is awesome.

Kenobi looks awesome too. I'm glad they're using the Inquisitors. I wonder if James Earl Jones recorded anything for the show.

Wait, Maul survived? I might need that flowchart.
What, he was only cut in half at the waist. ;)

Maul was resurrected by Sith sorcery in the "Clone Wars" and became a major antagonist in that show, and also in "Rebels" and "Solo". He got robot legs, which sounds dumb, but it ended up being super cool. He does meet his final fate in a duel with Obi-Wan on Tatooine, set after the upcoming Obi-Wan show.

It's the Boba Fett Corollary-

If you kill off an awesome character in an unsatisfying fashion, s/he's probably not dead.
Boba Fett's demise was very unsatisfactory.

But not Maul's. His screentime was too short, but his battle against Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan in The Phantom Menace was some of the best Star Wars ever done, including his two pieces falling down that shaft.

We needed more Boba Fett AND we were upset over how the Sarlaac ate him. Maul got a good ending, but we still needed more Maul because he was so menacing and cool. Irony is, IMO, the resurrected Maul ended up a very different character once fleshed out in "Clone Wars" and "Rebels". Still awesome, but not quite the savage, mysterious, menacing Sith Lord from The Phantom Menace.

I'm gonna need another flowchart...
I know you're kinda joking here, but let me nerdsplain . . . .

I'm assuming you are familiar with Captain Phasma, the First Order officer in silver stormtrooper armor from the sequel movies.

Omega is a clone introduced in "The Bad Batch" animated series. She's a young girl who is a "special" clone in ways not fully revealed yet. She sees the writing on the wall as the Empire takes over the Kaminoan cloning facilities, develops a hero worship crush on the "Bad Batch" (Clone Force 99), and ends up saving them, being adopted by them, becoming a part of the group.

There is no canon relationship between Omega and Phasma, to the best of my knowledge. Then again, I don't follow the comics or novels very closely.

You kinda bury the lede here, but she is special like Boba is, except she is female. So she's Boba Fett's "sister," from a certain point of view.

It was my second factoid after "she's a clone". Anyway . . . maybe. Boba Fett is a special clone because Jango asked for him to be created without any of the special conditioning normal Republic clone troopers got. Boba Fett was a clone of Jango, but more "normal" than the other clones.

Omega is special . . . we don't know how yet. We don't even know if she's cloned from Jango Fett's DNA, she certainly doesn't look like any of the other clones, even beyond differing in gender. She's very skilled for such a young person, seemingly moreso due to her specialness than any training she might have received. But she's still mostly a cypher at this point.

That is . . . unless I'm missing something from the comics or novels. Or forgetting something from "The Bad Batch".
