Obi-Wan Kenobi is my personal favorite character in Star Wars; Han Solo is a close second. I really hope this series continues the quality shown in ‘The Mandolorian’, and serves Sir Alec Guiness’es original and Ewan McGregor’s earlier performances fittingly.
I agree with you! If Dave Filoni can have any say, Sir Alec Guinness will be greatly honored and respected.
“This time, Darth Vader will be Kenobi’s greatest foe, not his fallen Jedi Anakin Skywalker.”
Kenobi never faced Anakin. When the battle on Mustafar took place, Anakin was already dubbed Darth Vader by Palpatine/Siddious and tho Kenobi calls him Anakin through out the fight, Anakin has already fallen to the Dark Side.
Good point. What I was intending with that statement was that Obi-Wan didn’t know (at the time) that Anakin was dubbed by Palpatine as “Darth Vader.” Since it was one-sided information, Kenobi still considered his Vader as Anakin during the fight of Mustafar.
I honestly do not like that idea of Kenobi & Vader meeting again, following the climatic battle on Mustafar. Would I love to see Vader in the show, of course. He’s my favorite movie character. But having them meet each other in this show would create continuity issues with A New Hope. Vader specifically tells Tarkin that he hasn’t seen Kenobi since he was his master. That was on Mustafar and ever since, I would argue he was no longer viewed as Anakin’s master.
Wow, those are fantastic points. Thank you for that reminder, totally forgot Vader told Tarkin that. Dang, the battle might not happen then. We’ll hopefully get some flashbacks of the two before Order 66 at least.
What hot nonsense is with the article title? The most important project since ‘A New Hope’!? Excuse me, what? I would like to humbly point the author towards a little film which came out in 1980 and goes by the name ‘The Empire Strikes Back’…
I totally agree with you. What I initially meant was the cultural impact in the Star Wars community. A New Hope was a catalyst for what would become the present fan base, and Empire Strikes Back added the beautiful flames to that already burning fire. As we’ve seen lately, the flames are dying down, but slowly coming back with The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch. It was my intention that the Kenobi series drops a bomb on the fire and ignites the fan base like never before.
The show has NOT wrapped. They have at least till September to go. Poor journalism.
That’s what I was thinking too since Lucasfilm has not officially announced anything, but we can’t let anything pass if it really did! The ups and downs of journalism, lol.
