6 Thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Review)

I wasn’t as super-hyped about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show as other Star Wars fans seemed to be. I was just never a big Obi-Wan fan in general. But I still love Star Wars and I’m going to watch whatever shows they put out. More power to them. Now that Obi-Wan has come and gone, I felt it was all just generally fine. Nothing particularly special, as far as I’m concerned.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good

In the end, I feel like Obi-Wan Kenobi was just a simple, straight forward adventure that this hermit Jedi gets to go on. It doesn’t really alter anything we know about the character or the era of the Star Wars timeline. I actually think it adds some unneeded complications that will need smoothing over in all our minds. But I was never bored, and there were definitely some cool moments. It’s definitely not a bad show. I just don’t think it was anything special.

Join me after the jump for my review and all my thoughts on the first(?) season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Obi-Wan is Looking Pretty Fly

I totally blew it for May the Fourth! It fell on a Wednesday, too, and I wasted my List of Six on some LEGO toys. Alas. Hopefully I can make up for that mistake by just posting this Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show trailer on May the Fifth. Does that still count? Probably not.

The trailer looks great! Lots of action, lots of tense moments, the promise of confrontation between Obi-Wan and Owen Lars. And the promise of some kind of confrontation between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. Will it be as awesome as we all hope? I guess we’ll find out when Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives on Disney+ on May 27.

A date where I will be heading out of town for a week-long trip. So I’m gonna miss out for several days.

Our First Look at the Obi-Wan Kenobi Show Looks Great!

I’ll admit that I’m not very hyped for the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show. I think Ewan McGregor is great and it’s cool that he’s returned…but I dunno. I’ve never been a big fan of Obi-Wan, especially not from the original trilogy. And The Book of Boba Fett was pretty lackluster.

But this first teaser trailer does look pretty darn great!

I like the feel of the trailer, that’s for sure. It feels dark and cool, and a little bit hopeless. I’ve never been big into the Inquisitors, so they don’t interest me much. But all that talk of hunting Jedi sounds pretty cool. And I’m thrilled that Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse are coming back as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, it’ll be interesting to see what they do. And, like I said, Ewan McGregor will be great!

Here’s hoping Jar Jar Binks makes a surprise appearance at some point! Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives on Disney+ on May 26.

6 Things I Want to See in All These Fancy New Star Wars Shows

I am just the sort of geek who is thrilled to the gills about all of the Marvel and Star Wars projects announced at the D23 Disney convention this past weekend. It might be shallow of me to gobble up all of this spoon-fed, nostalgia-based programming, but I do not care. Give me a Ms. Marvel TV show! Give me an Obi-Wan Kenobi show!

SWars Live Action List 01

Hello, how are you?

I also loved the first trailer for The Mandalorian. I can’t wait to sign up for Disney+ streaming on launch day so I can watch all this great new content coming over the next few years. In terms of Star Wars, we’ve got The Mandalorian, we’ve got a Cassian Andor show, and we have Ewan McGregor returning for an Obi-Wan Kenobi show! No doubt there are even more live action Star Wars shows in the pipeline. I did a List of Six a long time ago of possible live action shows, and today’s list is going to be specific Star Warsy things I want to see show up on these live action shows!

Join me after the jump for what particularly dorky Star Wars things I want to see happen in live action. And feel free to share your own in the comments!

A Proper Lightsaber Duel

The geniuses at FXitinPost have re-made the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope. My hat is off to them. That battle is pretty lame, and they turn it into the coolest lightsaber duel of the entire franchise!

These is a really well-done editing job, and some great lightsaber choreography! My hat is off to everyone involved!
