Good Morning Everyone,
Last night I was watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 2 and an intersting theory popped into my head. First off, I was watching the string of episodes about the Mandalores. A character by the name of Duchess Satine Kryze caught my eye.
She is the leader of the now Pacifist Mandalorains. It turns out that Satine and Obi Wan are old acquaintences... when Obi Wan was a Padawan, he and Qui Gon Jinn were assigned to the Mandalorian Home World during the Mandalorian Civil Wars to protect Satine Kryze. During this year Obi Wan and Satine fell in love... but ultimately Obi Wan chose his duties as a Jedi and continue his learning, even though he stated that if she would have asked him then he would have stayed with her and ended his Jedi Training... this is my Theory. I've heard the name Satine before. Satine is the name of Ewan McGregor's Love interest in Moulin Rouge. Then it donned on me that Duchess Satine kind of resembles Nicole Kidman.
In the movie Moulin Rouge, Nicole Kidman's character Satine falls in love with Ewan McGregor's character Christian, but ultimately becomes a love that cannot be as she is intended to marry The Duke... which I break to apoint out that if this marriage were to happen that would make Nicole Kidman's cahracter in Moulin Rouge... A Duchess. The thought that has popped into my mind is did the writers and developss of The Star Wars: Clone Wars do this on purpose as a pseudo-homage to Ewan McGregor? Or is this just a coincidence? I like to think this was done intentionally. What do you guys think? I for one hope that one day they explore the year Obi Wan spent on Mandalore. I find it very interesting that Obi Wan had a potential Girl Friend... I'm not sure why. I would also like to see more stories in regards to what happens to the Duchess Satine Kryze, as well. She is probably my favorite character to appear out of the Clone Wars.
