Summary

  • Order 66 marked the downfall of the Jedi, orchestrated by Palpatine to cut them off from the light side of the Force.
  • Survivors like Yoda, Ahsoka, Obi-Wan lived on, facing the Empire’s wrath as they struggled to continue their fight.
  • Even Inquisitors like Barriss Offee and Lyn Rakish had their own paths, torn between the dark side and redemption.

Order 66 was a pivotal moment in Star Wars history, with Palpatine ordering the clone troopers to execute the Jedi, but there were a handful of survivors. Palpatine orchestrated the Clone Wars as the perfect Jedi trap, with a galaxy’s worth of pain and suffering cutting the Jedi off from the light side of the Force. The Clone Wars ended with Order 66, as Darth Sidious issued the command to kill all of the Jedi, showcased in the third Star Wars movie in chronological order: Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

New Star Wars Movies: Every Upcoming Movie & Release Date

Here’s every upcoming Star Wars movie in development – including Rey’s New Jedi Order, the Dawn of the Jedi, and The Mandalorian & Grogu!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ timeline revealed the clones had no choice but to obey Palpatine. All the clones were implanted with an inhibitor chip, one that constrained their own judgment and forced them to obey Palpatine’s will. And so, when the command was given, Order 66 was executed with ruthless efficiency. Meanwhile, Darth Vader led his clones in an attack on the Jedi Temple itself. But, as effective as the Emperor’s plan may have been, it was never going to be entirely successful; a few Jedi survived, some of whom will even appear in upcoming Star Wars TV shows.

As seen in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Yoda was on Kashyyyk helping the native Wookiees fight off the Separatists when Order 66 was issued. Yoda sensed the disturbance in the Force, and killed the clone troopers who were about to gun him down; he then escaped Kashyyyk with the help of Chewbacca and Tarful. Yoda joined up with Obi-Wan Kenobi, returning to Coruscant to learn the truth of Anakin Skywalker’s betrayal and Palpatine’s Sith identity. The aged Jedi Master went into hiding, although there’s some evidence the Empire thought Yoda dead before the original trilogy era.

The Grand Inquisitor was the main antagonist of the first season of Star Wars Rebels, but after his death, it was revealed he used to be a Jedi Temple guard. He was present for Ahsoka’s trial when she was accused of bombing the Jedi Temple and betraying the Order. It was ultimately revealed that Ahsoka was innocent, but the false accusation and the Order’s treatment of Ahsoka left the Grand Inquisitor disillusioned with the Order, and he defected before Order 66, falling to the dark side. Later, he was approached by Palpatine about heading the Inquisitorius, the Empire’s Jedi hunters.

The Padawan of Depa Billaba, Caleb Dume survived Order 66 thanks to Clone Force 99. As seen in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 1, these mutant clones could resist their inhibitor chips, and they were understandably bewildered when their brother clones started executing Jedi. They helped Caleb escape, and – as told in tie-in comics – a young Caleb was taken in by the smuggler Janus Kasmir, who advised him to abandon all connections to the Jedi. Caleb took up the name Kanan Jarrus and became a crucial figure in the Rebellion, one of the heroes of Star Wars: Rebels.

Overflowing with rage and regret, Cere tapped into the dark side and killed almost everyone in the room before making her escape. Cere cut herself off from the Force shortly after but returned to her Jedi roots in Jedi: Survivor in order to help the Hidden Path relocate those displaced by the Empire. Like her Padawan, she ultimately died at the hands of Darth Vader in Jedi: Survivor.

When he met Merrin, the last surviving Nightsister, he told her the Jedi were responsible for the genocide of her sisters and promised her revenge if she taught him Nightsister magick. When Cal Kestis came to Dathomir and learned of Malicos’ deceit, the two dueled until Merrin used her Nightsister magick to entomb Malicos in the ground.

In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, it was revealed his studies led him away from the Council and off their radar, meaning he managed to escape Order 66 by being away from the action. He then reunited with his old Padawan to help the Hidden Path relocate other survivors suffering from the Empire’s persecution. Unfortunately, Cordova was cut down by his friend, Bode Akuna, who was a double agent for the Empire.

Introduced in Jedi: Survivor, Bode Akuna was one of the few Jedi during The Clone Wars assigned to intelligence by the Jedi Council. Not only was Bode an expert liar and actor, but he also possessed Force concealment; an ability that allowed him to not be sensed by other Force-sensitives. With these skills, Bode managed to disappear from the Empire during Order 66.

However, Inquisitors eventually caught up to him and his wife, leading him to cut a deal with the Empire in order to protect his daughter. Bode feigned friendship with Cal Kestis and the crew of the Mantis to secure a path to Tanalorr. After Cal dedicated Tanalorr to the Hidden Path, Bode ultimately betrayed his friends.
