If author Stuart Beattie’s preliminary idea for Obi-Wan Kenobi had made it to the display, followers would have seen one in every of their favourite characters dropped at the display for the primary time since his character was issued the fateful Order 66 within the final prequel movie, Revenge of the Sith.

As far because the Disney Plus Star Wars streaming collection go, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the most recent stand-alone miniseries within the franchise, in all probability introduced within the greatest legacy characters to seem in any of the Star Wars TV collection up to now. Fans obtained to see youthful variations of Luke and Leia, glimpse a down-and-out clone trooper performed by Boba Fett actor Temuera Morrison, and noticed Kenobi battle a completely armored Darth Vader for the primary time because the premiere of A New Hope again in 1977. But Beattie additionally had plans to carry again Kenobi’s former Clone Wars compatriot, Commander Cody.

“Yeah, yeah. Cody was the big one. I love the idea of Obi-Wan having a buddy on Tatooine. Like a secret buddy. So like the first time he goes into town, you see, Cody, and he’s following him through the streets and attacks him, takes him into an alley with a knife to his throat and says, ‘You’re dead.’ And then you realize, ‘Oh, no… Cody’s making a point.’ Like, ‘Come on. You got to be more careful.’”

Cody — AKA CC-2224 — was the chief of the 212th Attack Battalion beneath the command of Obi-Wan within the days of the Clone Wars when the Jedi grasp was nonetheless a General within the Army of the Republic. While Cody briefly appeared in Revenge of the Sith, he’s a serious character within the animated prequel collection The Clone Wars, which tells the tales of the galaxy-wide battle occurring between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. As Kenobi’s “right-hand clone” within the collection, he shortly grew to become a fan favourite.

Beattie’s unique conception was to indicate Cody as simply as scarred by the wars as Obi-Wan, having misplaced the inhibitor chip that compelled him to execute Order 66 and attempting to take care of what he did after the Emperor took command.

“Cody has now morphed from someone who was trying to kill him when we last saw them to someone who is now devoting his life to protect him.’ Because by now he’s had the biochip taken out of his head, and now he realizes, ‘Oh my god, what I did was wrong.’ And he has driven by guilt, as much as Obi Wan is driven by guilt. So you got these two kind of old warriors bickering like this old married couple, bitching about, ‘God, it was so much better when we had an army at our backs,’ you know?’”

Unfortunately for his followers, Cody was dropped from the script in revisions, probably as a result of availability of Temuera Morrison.

However, followers of the character will be capable to see him once more quickly, if not in real-life kind; the animated character shall be returning for the second season of Disney Plus’ renegade clone trooper collection, The Bad Batch.
