Lucasfilm's expansion via the Disney+ streaming platform has proven to be highly beneficial to the Star Wars universe and since the collaboration's inception in 2019, the franchise has produced several hit shows, including the standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi series which saw the triumphant return of Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to the whimsical world of Star Wars after 17 years.

Most of you are probably aware by now that the series which was originally intended to be a big-screen offering cut cameo appearances from several notable characters and it turns out that one more Jedi might have been originally included in a haunting sequence in Chapter 4.

Official artwork posted on the Artstation website by ILM senior concept artist Kouji Tajima reveals that Jedi Knight Pablo-Jill nearly made an appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi. For the uninitiated, the character made his first live-action appearance in Attack of the Clones where he was involved in the First Battle of Geonosis. He was later cut from Revenge of the Sith but it is believed that he was among the casualties of Order 66.

Tajima didn't exactly say much about Pablo-Jill's involvement but it's safe to assume that he would've been included in the scene where the titular character finds himself in a chamber filled with deceased Jedi. Check it out here:
