‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’: rumors about Purge Troopers, Partisans and the planet Jabiim

MakingStarWars.net has published two new leaks about Obi-Wan Kenobi. It’s a very reliable site so all this is probably true. Here’s a recap.

The Partisans on Jabiim

  • Obi-Wan goes to Jabiim during the series. (In the Legends continuity, Jabiim was a muddy world where a major battle of the Clone Wars took place. Obi-Wan and Anakin both took part in this battle.)
  • Saw Gerrera’s Partisans are operating on the planet. O’Shea Jackson’s character is one of them. Their suits are reminiscent of World War I uniforms.
  • The droid that we see in the teaser belongs to the Partisans on Jabiim.
  • Some of the Partisans use enhanced Clone Trooper blasters.
  • Unlike in Rogue One, not all the Partisans are fighters. Some are humanitarians. There’s a sequence where we see humanitarian Partisans not knowing how to defend themselves.
  • Most Partisans are young humans in the series. It’s unclear if Gerrera or any of the Partisans from Rogue One will appear.

The new Purge Troopers

  • A new iteration of the Purge Trooper will be introduced in the series, probably in the third or fourth episode. (The Purge Troopers are a special class of imperial soldier who assist the Inquisitors in hunting down Jedi. They were in the Jedi Fallen Order game.)
  • They have a new helmet that is closer to the Shore Trooper.
  • Darth Vader, the Purge Troopers and the 501st Legion hunt down Obi-Wan on a large ship that ends up on Jabiim. Vader and Obi-Wan have their first duel on this ship. Obi-Wan eventually loses his lightsaber and has to use a blaster to survive.
  • The ship is of the same kind as the transport ship used by Mando in The Book of Boba Fett.
  • The new Purge Troopers will also appear in the Jedi Fallen Order sequel.
