Star Wars is back, baby! If you haven’t been watching the incredible, new, Star Wars shows on Disney Plus…you gotta change that immediately! The Saga hasn’t been this exhilarating in years!
Whether it’s been the first two, utterly brilliant seasons of The Mandalorian…or the extremely entertaining story of The Book Of Boba Fett …Disney Plus has rejuvenized the Saga. With creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni seemingly leading the charge…the Galaxy has never looked or felt better.
While I personally enjoy the Sequel Trilogy, I recognize that it was very polarizing for fans…as many had creative disagreements with some of the decisions made by the Sequel Trilogy film-makers J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson. Whereas these new Disney shows have mostly united a once-fractured fanbase.
With Obi-Wan Kenobi, the audience has been given one treat after another. From iconic characters returning to amazing surprises, the series has more than delivered on creating those quintessential Star Wars moments which leave people with their jaws on the floor.
Now—this section of the article will contain a few SPOILERS—so if you haven’t seen the series yet you should scroll down, past this section, and onto the video section!
—SPOILERS SECTION: OK, first things first. Darth Vader being in the series is simply amazing. We knew that he would be back…they did not hide this fact leading up to the premiere…but nonetheless…Vader has been AWESOME. I think it’s the best Darth Vader that we’ve seen since The Empire Strikes Back. He’s ruthless and evil…a killing machine.
But that’s not all! One of the secrets was little Leia! A ten-year-old version of everyone’s favorite Disney Princess is pretty fantastic and the young actress who plays Leia is wonderful.
I also love the Inquisitors…sinister and mysterious and loyal to Vader. Very cool.
And then there’s Bail Organa, Uncle Owen, and Aunt Beru…as well as a little Luke Skywalker…who have all been featured to moving emotional effect and who surely will play an important part in the finale.
It’s been a truly magnificent program thus far and I highly recommend you binge-watch it before the Season Finale on Wednesday! Scroll down for videos of Obi-Wan Kenobi!
