As with “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and its bevy of cameos, the untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series may well boast its own plethora of “Star Wars” characters, so long as they fit perfectly into the Obi-Wan series timeline. Writer Hossein Amini has already explained that the Disney Plus series will take place between Episodes 3 and 4 of the Skywalker saga.

The following four characters rest at the top of the list of potential “Star Wars” characters that could appear among the Obi-Wan series cast.

Ahsoka Tano

Despite fans fearing her demise with her subtle cameo in “Rise of Skywalker,” Jedi Knight and Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice herself Ahsoka Tano may well reappear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. According to WeGotThisCovered, various sources have alluded to her potential larger role in the Disney Plus show, with Lucasfilm apparently “100% talking about it.” 

Darth Maul

What with Maul killing Kenobi’s Master in “The Phantom Menace,” the hero and villain pair have shared a long and intertwined history beyond the movies. Though Kenobi may have cut Maul in half at the climax of Episode 1, it was discovered during the animated “Clone Wars” series that he had resurfaced. And, given the character’s live-action resurgence in “Solo,” Maul may well be prime pickings as an overarching enemy for Kenobi to deal with while hiding away on Tatooine during his own Disney Plus show.

Qui-Gon Jinn

The fatal demise of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn didn’t last long, however, as in the final moments of “Revenge of the Sith,” Yoda tells Kenobi that he has spoken with his former Master through the force. In fact, Jinn was the one who taught both Yoda and Kenobi how to project themselves after death using the Force, which is how audiences see Anakin, Yoda, and Kenobi in the closing moments of "Return of the Jedi.” 

Liam Neeson has stated wanting to return to the role and, with the Force Ghost lessons needing far more clarification, the Obi-Wan series could be the best possible route to explore Kenobi’s education in overcoming death. 

Owen Lars

The hard-headed uncle of Luke Skywalker, Owen Lars, may not be the most memorable of “Star Wars” characters, yet to Obi-Wan, he remains as important as Maul, given the two characters’ varied points of view. In “A New Hope,” though he doesn’t outright say it, Lars clearly blames Kenobi for the death of Anakin Skywalker and it’s clear Lars has little to no respect for the former Jedi since he calls him a "crazy old man."

The Obi-Wan series could always showcase this very development, how Kenobi and Lars’ relationship unfolded and eventually turned into disrepair by “A New Hope.” Like Neeson, Joel Edgerton, who played Lars in the prequels, has also commented on wanting to return to “Star Wars.” 

A variety of other "Star Wars" characters could appear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, from Bail Organa to Jabba the Hutt, though time will only tell. Disney's Obi-Wan series begins filming in 2020.
