That Creepy Tomb Scene In Obi-Wan Kenobi Explained
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for "Part IV" of "Obi-Wan Kenobi."
There's a horror in "Part IV" of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" that disquiets its eponymous Jedi. In an effort to rescue Princess Leia from the Third Sister's interrogative grip in the Fortress Inquisitorius on the water-based moon Nur, Obi-Wan Kenobi slinks down a corridor.
Obi-Wan is met by a macabre museum of mummified Jedi, encased in something like amber resin. It becomes obvious that, like a prideful hunter who mounts an elk's or moose's head above their fireplace, Inquisitors love to collect demented trophies of their kills — but maybe there’s a more nefarious purpose.
The amber resin evokes the "Jurassic Park" cloning technique where dinosaur blood is extracted from amber-encased insects. Considering how Moff Gideon was fixated on Grogu’s blood, it’s very possible that the Empire has been getting its hands on Midi-chlorian-rich blood from various other species for a reason that has yet to be revealed.
