Obi-Wan Kenobi gave us a terrifying twist with the Jedi corpses. In Star Wars Rebels, we saw how the Grand Inquisitor tricked Kanan and Ezra into finding Jedi Master Luminara Unduli’s body entombed and used as bait for other Order 66 survivors. Obi-Wan Kenobi Part IV uses a similar technique for the scene where Old Ben finds a tomb of Jedi bodies encased in amber in the Fortress Inquisitorius. While we only see a handful of individuals here, the idea of these people being shown this way is how Master Unduli will appear a few years later.

This was exciting to see amongst all the Jedi Fallen Order references. Also, we do want to stress that we don’t know when Luminara was captured or when she died. Kanan tells Hera that there were always rumours that Luminara had survived the Clone Wars, but nothing could be verified. There are no gags Rebels‘ gags here, folks.

New Rockstars’ Erik Voss and Jessica Clemons mentioned in their Star Wars aftershow Wookieeleaks that there are more bodies in that tomb that we couldn’t see. So could it be possible that Luminara was killed after Order 66, and then her corpse was taken to the Spire later? Yeah, it’s entirely possible.

Luminara was an important Jedi during the Clone Wars due to her abilities as a healer. She was also an essential part of Barriss’ story and how Offee framed Ahsoka for the Jedi Temple Bombing. In some way, Luminara contributed to Barriss’ Fall to the Dark Side. This also contributed to Anakin’s fall as he lost an essential part of himself when Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. If anything, she could be seen as a Jedi survivor.

Obi-Wan’s Heartbreak

Going back to Obi-Wan’s adventure to look for Leia, finding the bodies would’ve been soul-destroying for him. The people he saw dead and hung on the wall like trophies would’ve been difficult for him to see. Some of them he would’ve known. There is one man that looks like Quinlan Vos. Though, we don’t think it’s him. There would have been lingering on him if it were, and he doesn’t have the yellow stripe across his nose. Also, Obi-Wan would’ve reacted if it were him as they were friends during the Clone Wars.

Erik Voss mentioned during Wookieeleaks that it would’ve been odd for Vos to be name-dropped in Part III and then seen to be dead in Part IV. Conclusively, Tala would’ve known if he were deceased. Moreover, this is also a Rebels connection.
