Why Wasn't Yoda in Obi-Wan Kenobi?
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor was released earlier this year and featured some exciting cameos from the prequel era. However, Yoda did not make an appearance in the series. In their final scene together in Revenge of the Sith, Yoda tells Obi-Wan that he will train on Tatooine and learn how to communicate with his old master, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson). However, when we see Obi-Wan again in the series ten years later, he is been unable to make contact with Qui-Gon, having cut himself off from the Force. During an interview with The Jess Cagle Show, McGregor explained why Yoda wasn't in the series.
"All he's got left is to look after Luke Skywalker. That's all he's got left, really, and to try to communicate with his old master, Qui-Gonn, in his spiritual life," McGregor explained. "But he can't reach out to any of his old [mentors]. He can't reach out to Yoda, he can't reach out to any of the surviving Jedi for fear of giving himself away."
