Will Star Wars’ ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Show Acknowledge His Past Love?

Most people know Star Wars’ Obi-Wan Kenobi as either the wizened mentor of the original trilogy or the young but dedicated teacher and friend in the prequels. But did you know Obi-Wan was also a romantic hero of the Clone Wars? Obi-Wan had his love interests in the original expanded universe of novels (which aren’t canon for Disney’s new entries in the franchise), but the romantic life of the Skywalkers’ favorite teacher wasn’t explored in canon until The Clone Wars season 2.

Enter Duchess Satine Kryze, pacifist ruler of Mandalore and leader of the Neutral Systems (and yes, she is named for Satine of Moulin Rouge, in a reference to Obi-Wan actor Ewan McGregor’s love interest in that movie). If the name rings any other bells, her sister, Bo-Katan, made her live-action debut in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. (Played by her voice actress, Katee Sackhoff, too!)
