Fans are eager to see the finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi with the promise of another duel between Vader and Kenobi seeming imminent. The reported runtime for the finale is 90 minutes and this would make sense due to the number of things expected to happen in the series.

One thing fans weren’t expecting was for Disney to spoil the location for the upcoming duel. Disney+ Hotstar, the account ran for India’s version of Disney+ used some fan art to promote the finale showing Vader and Kenobi on the lava planet once again:

With this in mind, it does seem like the two will face off on Mustafar since Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s first concept art around their duel had the two also on Mustafar:

While this will be amazing to watch, it’s hard to know why Kenobi will end up on Mustafar. Perhaps the Jedi Master will take Leia to safety and travel back to where it all started on Mustafar to confront Vader on the planet that left the two as enemies rather than brothers.

Kathleen Kennedy promises that this will be the “rematch of the century” so fans will have to judge if the finale truly lives up to the hype that the series has created. While fans liked the last duel between Vader and Kenobi, it was obvious that the Jedi was not as powerful as he will be in the finale which is why Vader won so easily.
