All About Obi-Wan: Kenobi Series Facts Collected
Everything you want to know about Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi series….
I will admit it. I do not know everything about Obi-Wan Kenobi. Shocking, I know.
Now, I know a lot. And I know, perhaps, a little too much about my favorite character from the Prequel Trilogy. However, it’s darn hard to keep track.
Yada, yada, yada. That’s a Tatooinese term for “whatever.”
But that said, there are people who know much more than me. And, thankfully, I am a blogger. So, my JOB is to find these spectacular articles where all of this knowledge is collected and let you know where to find that cache of information.
Case in point: Sean Keane’s “Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney Plus: Everything we know about the upcoming Star Wars series.”
We being cnet.com. No nerf herders when it comes to Star Wars.
Anyway, I will send you to the full article, but here are a few points to whet your vaporator.
In the section, “What do we know about the plot?” Keane posted:
Right now, all we can really say is that Obi-Wan — known to the locals as Ben Kenobi — will watch over Luke from a distance while in exile on Tatooine. Don’t think too hard about the fact that Vader failed to look for his son on his home planet, that the Galactic Empire didn’t notice a young man with the name Skywalker or that Obi-Wan’s alias is pretty darn similar to his own name.
It’s unclear what kind of role Vader will play in this show; Obi-Wan could leave Tatooine and have a close encounter with his fallen apprentice, or we might just cut to a distant Vader at some point.
“This will be the rematch of the century,” Kennedy said of Christensen’s return, suggesting that the two will meet.
There is much more to be had where those came from, including a discussion of Liam Neeson’s possible involvement.
That is, perhaps, the most interesting piece of the Kenobi puzzle for me, and I posted about it recently.
Also interesting to us padawans here at MickeyBlog.com is the return of the Kenobi beard as written up by Melissa Roden.
In any case, you get the picture.
