Bail Organa is Rumored To Appear in ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ on Disney+

(Obi-wan and Bail Organa prequel)

File this under rumor, but I think it’s very likely for a few reasons, but the rumor is that Bail Organa will be appearing in the ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ show on Disney+.

According to Making Star Wars, Jimmy Smits was allegedly seen by their “sources” on set with Ewan McGregor.

Now this would make sense for a couple of reasons.

  1. Making Star Wars points out that there apparently is merchandise for the show that has Bail Organa in it. “It is also why he has been left off the cast list (merchandise for the Kenobi series also have Smits’ Bail Organa in production for the coming year).”
  2. They were apparently casting an actress to play young Princess Leia last year. Since Bail and Breha Organa are her adoptive parents it would stand to reason that if Leia was around one of them would be also.
  3. Bail Organa was important to the rebellion and knows both Obi-Wan and Yoda and it would be likely that Obi-Wan would want to keep tabs on her as well.
  4. Recently Shop Disney added Bail Organa’s tunic and a Security Aid coat to their Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge attire options. Just like they added the Leia dress from ‘A New Hope.’ So that stuck out to me when I read the rumor as well.


This rumor does have some weight behind it due to previous news about the show.

It’s unclear if Breha will be in the show as well, although Making Star Wars does indicate that their sources say that she will be.

Breha Organa is back as Bail Organa’s wife and Queen. It is inconclusive if Rebecca Jackson Mendoza is back in the role as Princess Leia’s adoptive mother. The word of mouth has been affirmative for the character’s return but not the casting itself.

It keeps getting more and more interesting. Of course it’s all rumor and we won’t know for sure until the show debuts on Disney+ on May 25th, but I can’t wait to see what turns out to be true.

Hopefully it will go over better than “The Book of Boba Fett” and characters will act like themselves this time.
