When Revenge of the Sith arrived in 2005, it introduced us to that most fateful event in Star Wars history – the execution of Order 66, which saw virtually every Jedi murdered at the hands of Palpatine’s Clone Troopers. Well, that’s what we thought at the time. Since then, we’ve had two animated series, a video game and more that have either added new characters into the mix or have retconned that pre-existing ones managed to survive the massacre.
With Star Wars: The Clone Wars reaching its series finale this Monday, May 4th – AKA Star Wars Day – now seems like the time to recap every single Jedi – and one former Sith – who survived Order 66. Let’s start with the characters that originated from the movies:
- Yoda – as revealed in The Empire Strikes Back/Revenge of the Sith
- Obi-Wan Kenobi – as revealed in A New Hope/Revenge of the Sith
- Darth Maul – as explored in Star Wars Rebels, Solo: A Star Wars Story and The Clone Wars
Next, here’s the pair of surviving Jedi who debuted in the animated shows:
- Ahsoka Tano – as explored in Rebels and The Clone Wars
- Kanan Jarrus – as revealed in Rebels
2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, meanwhile, introduced a trio of new faces who were revealed to have escaped Order 66. Namely:
- Cal Kestis
- Taron Malicos
- Cere Junda
And let’s not forget Naq Med, a former Jedi who left the Order to settle down and marry before The Great Purge. He was introduced in 2019’s YA novel Force Collector.
Finally, comic book Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith revealed a list of the surviving Jedi that the Inquisitors are on the hunt for. This confirms that a handful of characters from the prequels and The Clone Wars made it out, as well as introducing a couple of new names into the mix.
- Quinlan Vos
- Coleman Kcaj
- Oppo Rancisis
- Selrach Eluos
- Ka-Moon Kholi
And there you have it. To date, that’s every Jedi in the Star Wars canon who survived Order 66. And if you haven’t seen The Clone Wars finale yet and want to know how Ahsoka and Maul escape, be sure to catch it now on Disney Plus.
