In recent weeks, there have been a lot of big Obi-Wan Kenobi leaks and rumours. However, while the first two episodes of the Disney+ limited series confirmed that those were (mostly) accurate, there are a whole heap of details that thankfully didn't find their way online ahead of the premiere.
We got some big cameos in these opening chapters, including C-3PO when the premiere took us to Alderaan. Obi-Wan Kenobi marks the first time we've visited that planet, of course, and Princess Leia's upbringing could not have been any different to Luke Skywalker's on Tatooine. Alderaan looks very much like the nicer planets we saw in the Star Wars prequels and life there is good.
We think R2-D2 can also be glimpsed somewhere in the background, anyway, but that was indeed Anthony Daniels back in costume as Threepio for what proves to be a fun moment for fans.
However, the biggest surprise cameo comes when The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison shows up as a Veteran Clone Trooper begging for money on Daiyu. The actor has been slightly aged up and is rocking a mighty beard, and aside from Star Wars Rebels, this offers an idea of what became of many Clone Troopers after the Empire decided they were surplus to requirements.
Needless to say, we're sure this will only increase the desire among fans to see Morrison play Captain Rex, but this is a great cameo, particularly as we get a glimpse at how "Ben" must feel about the Clones he once went into battle with. Whether that continues to be explored remains to be seen.
