‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Showrunner Addresses Grand Inquisitor’s Surprising Fate

Obi-Wan Kenobi is three episodes in, and a shocking moment came at the end of Part II for Star Wars Rebels fans.

In the episode, we see Reva stab the Grand Inquisitor, who appears to be dead despite the character showing up years later in the animated Rebels series.

In an interview with Vanity Fair recapping the show’s events so far,

Obi-Wan Kenobi head writer had this to say about what happened to the Jedi hunter:

Harold then talked about his experience watching that moment in front of the fans at the Obi-Wan Kenobi world premiere held during Star Wars Celebration:

Based on Harold’s comments, it sounds like the Obi-Wan Kenobi creators are staying true to canon and not killing off the character earlier in the timeline.

There could also be a few reasons for how the Grand Inquisitor survived that strike from Reva.

For one, we’ve seen Star Wars characters come back from worse before, plus the villain’s species, Pau’an, has two stomachs.

Directed by Deborah Chow from Joby Harold’s scripts, the series stars Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen
