Obi-Wan Kenobi wasn’t fairly the house run followers had been hoping for, however we nonetheless suppose it was a enjoyable however flawed journey that didn’t break the story of A New Hope. We received to see what the title hero was as much as in his time on Tatooine, a have a look at Leia’s childhood, and the much-hyped battles with Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader had been well worth the wait.
So, may we see a second season? We’ve had no official indication from Disney or Lucasfilm, however it seems Ewan McGregor isn’t ruling something out. During an look at Celebrity Fan Fest, the actor was requested whether or not he’d be ready to strap on a lightsaber once more.
“I’m totally up for it guys, I want to do it. I’m absolutely honest, there’s no plan to make one yet. But I think – I’m pretty sure they’re just biding their time. I think, but nobody’s approached me as of yet.”
If we did get extra Obi-Wan Kenobi, then, what may it appear like? As the primary season ended, Vader was being given a speaking to by the Emperor, who informed him to recover from his fixation on his outdated Master and concentrate on ruling the galaxy. This might rule out additional conflicts between Obi-Wan and Vader, however with 9 years earlier than A New Hope, there’s nonetheless lots of storytelling potential.
Perhaps we may see Obi-Wan secretly contributing his skills because the Rebel Alliance kinds, as the primary season underlined he’s nonetheless a extremely revered army chief throughout the galaxy. Or, in the event that they needed to maintain issues a bit of extra low-key, perhaps exhibiting him doing good on Tatooine and fleshing out his relationship with the younger Luke Skywalker would make for a enjoyable season arc.
Then once more, there’s the looming drawback that Obi-Wan is meant to be laying low. The first six episodes already stretched that conceit fairly far along with his journeys across the galaxy, so becoming in one other secret blockbuster journey might stretch credibility.
Whatever the case, we suspect we now have one thing of a wait earlier than we hear extra about Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s potential return.
