We now have a trailer for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series streaming on Disney+ starting on May 25. The biggest thing I took away from the trailer was the presences of Inquisitors, especially the Grand one. It's nice to see how they're bringing animated characters to live action. The Book of Boba Fett was so surprising and awesome that I'm sure this will be very similar. Haden Christensen is returning, I assume he's going to be in the Darth Vadar suit, perhaps it's just in flash backs.

Let me know what you think. Is this something you're looking forward to, too?

May 25 can't get here soon enough. :-)

I’m taking bets for if folks think Snoke and his backstory will be featured here. My hope is that it is and if it isn’t I think it will suffer.

It must cover Emperor clones.

I don't know if I forgot, but while watching the New Rockstars breakdown of the trailer, Erik Voss explained how Ahsoka got those white lightsabers. Yes, I realize she's not in the trailer, but it's relevant because she took the kyber crystals from the lightsabers of an Inquisitor and purged them of their dark side corruption. If you don't know who the Inquisitors are, go watch Rebels and play Jedi Fallen Order before you watch this show. My favorite one is in that game.

Also (this is just a funny thought), if The Book of Boba Fett was any indication, two episodes of this show will be about Boba (going back one show previous) and Obi-Wan won't hardly be seen. LOL

Ha. I think the Book of Boba Fett showed that The Mandalorian is really popular and Boba Fett isn’t as interesting or something? I mean, I liked the show, but Boba Fett show got better when Mando joined. Then the show sort of forgot it was a Boba Fett show and it became Mando season 2.5.

That said, Mando can’t join Obi Wan UNLESS Obi Wan is heading out to save a Mandalorian foundling (YOUNG MANDO) and then Obi Wan is lone wolf and cub where the cub is… Dinn Jarin? I mean, sure I’d watch that, but seems unlikely. smile

I keep telling Mando fans that they must watch Book of Boba Fett before season 3. I feel sorry for the people who are going to miss out on that connection, I think it's important.

Aw, so I just heard this takes place 5 years AFTER Jedi Fallen Order. So, we won't see my favorite Inquisitor (she's the last one we see). I probably only love her so much, because I think she's so hot. LOL

So, I had a thought that I think would be amazing. What if we saw Mace Windu? I believe I heard that Samuel L. Jackson would love to return. "Oh, but he died," you say? A rule of cinema I learned last year is that if you don't see a body, they're not definitely dead. However, Star Wars takes that a step further and says, "no one ever really dies." LOL Maybe Windu landed safely on a car. He was a very unique Jedi and I'd love to see him in live action again. I'd love for Star Wars to come out and show us he's not dead. There's a reason his lightsaber is purple and he studies a unique form, which I don't know of any other character that does. This form actually uses the dark side against their opponents. I think I heard most Jedi don't practice this form as it can lead one down the path of the dark side.

Let me know your thoughts! I'm always excited for a new Star Wars or Marvel Disney+ show, because they're always awesome (IMHO)!

I just read that Samuel L. Jackson's still talking about how he wants to return to Star Wars. This was days after I made that last comment. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/samuel-l-jackson-wants-to-return-to-star-wars/1100-6501603/

YES!!!!!!! I'm very satisfied with how this turned out! How about you?

jdodson   Admin wrote on 06/28/2022 at 04:15am

Yep. I really enjoyed the show a lot. Fun way to bridge the prequels to the classic trilogy. Not perfect, but pretty darn good. To me, the best Star Wars show yet.

Azurephile   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 06/28/2022 at 05:04am

I agree that it wasn't perfect, but it was really great. "Best" is a hard one. Better than Bad Batch? Yes. As for Boba and Mandalorian, it's a bit tougher to say. I really loved all three. This show has Obi-Wan, Leia, Vader, Anakin, and others, so that kind of makes it more epic.

Do you think they'll do a season two? I'm not sure. I know the main actors want to. I'm aware of things that happened with Obi-Wan while he looked over Luke from a distance in other source material (maybe not all cannon). Seeing that in live action would be really cool. ("OBI-WAAAANNNN!!!!!")

Getting more Vader would be cool, too. I'm not as aware of what he's been doing during this time, so that could be cool to see more. I don't know that I need to see them crossing paths again, though.
