After a new film trilogy, prequel and numerous spin-off series on Disney+, it seems that Disney isn’t quite done with Star Wars just yet. But this particular series had been riddled with problems since 2019 and that is the solo Obi Wan Kenobi series. The series sees Ewan McGregor reprise the iconic role and chronicles his journey after ‘Revenge of the Sith’ up until ‘A New Hope’.
After ‘Mandalorian’ was released, I had hope that the Star Wars brand was expanding past characters that fans have come to know and love; the setting of space is huge and has the capacity to introduce millions of different planets and civilizations into the medium. But the ‘Boba Fett’ solo show and now this tells me otherwise. It’s a little tiring thinking Star Wars has grown past the same main characters to then return to them numerous times.
However, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued by this show. Ewan McGregor is a fantastic actor and, while reviews on the prequel trilogy are mixed, he was great in those films as a young Obi Wan Kenobi. Therefore, I’m very interested to see him return to this role. And, while I don’t feel this is a story that necessarily needs to be told, it looks incredible, and it’s been in production for a few years. So, I hope Star Wars fans enjoy it.
While I have grown tired of Star Wars returning to the same characters over and over, I can’t deny that I am a little interested in ‘Obi Wan Kenobi’. The visuals look fantastic as always and Ewan McGregor is a great actor who will, undoubtfully, pull off a brilliant performance once again.
Despite everything that’s been said, if Disney are going to start revisiting iconic characters, is there any chance we can get a Darth Maul series?
