We already know Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader is set to appear in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series headed for Disney+, but what about Kenobi’s original Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn?

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a show that is, for the most part, giving Star Wars fans the nostalgia they’ve been waiting for. From the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader to animated characters reportedly getting their live-action debut, the show is extremely high on fans’ lists this year.

“One of the foundational myths of modern professional sports begins with the notion that the National Basketball Association had lost its way in the 1970s, becoming a niche league for a variety of reasons, including a lack of likable players—or, to put it in the terms the era’s television executives were using behind closed doors, a lack of white players.

“When the original Law & Order premiered in September 1990, no one thought it would become one of TV’s longest-running and most successful franchises. However, here we are seven series later and it’s a television staple. Yes, the shows have their detractors as some episodes have not aged well, but if you tell me you’ve never been sucked into an afternoon binge, I’m calling you a liar.”
