4 reasons to go crazy with Obi-Wan Kenobi

The new Star Wars series, starring Obi-Wan Kenobi, has 4 reasons for fans of the saga to lose our minds.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is very close to returning to our lives. The new television series starwars on Disney+ arrives on the streaming platform next May. Today we have been able to see the first official images and it is rumored that we will also see the first official trailer. We’re going to have to wait a bit for the full series, but the Galactic Saga brings back an unforgettable character. A character that we have never been able to separate from and that is rooted in the origins of the saga.

Star Wars introduced Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first film in the franchise. lucasfilm. A new hope dates back to 1977, so it has rained quite a bit since then. However, the character got even bigger with the prequel trilogy. Now that his return is closer than ever, today we bring you the 4 reasons that lead us to think that fans of the Star Wars saga are going to go completely crazy with Obi-Wan Kenobi. We share them, to see if you agree!

1- The return of Ewan McGregor

The first great attraction of the series is the return of Ewan McGregor. The actor who brought Obi-Wan Kenobi to life in the prequel trilogy returns after more than a decade without touching the character. His return not only makes the Star Wars series gain a uniform identity with the preceding products. He is also a delight for all fans of the saga. Plus, he’s the perfect age to play the exiled Jedi right at this stage in the fictional history of the galaxy far, far away.

2- The return of the Sith Lord

If the hype to see Ewan McGregor is unleashed… imagine the desire to see dart Vader! The legendary sith lord from the Star Wars saga returns to the galactic universe and will do so in the most incredible way possible. A dream return. And it is that Hayden Christensenwho gave life to Anakin Skywalker in the prequel trilogy, he returns to the Lucasfilm franchise. He will play Darth Vader and… who knows? Maybe we even have a flashback of The Clone Wars to delight fans of the animated series.

3- The Inquisitors

This concept was presented in the animated series of Star Wars Rebels. The so-called Inquisitors are beings sensitive to Forceusers of Dark sidewho were carrying out the orders of the Emperor Palpatine and of Darth Vader himself at the time of exterminating the Jedi who had survived the Order 66. But not only that, they also found Force-sensitive beings (no matter how old they were) and tried to hunt them down or lure them to their side. In the series of Obi-Wan Kenobi we will be able to see and enjoy them, in the same way that we saw and enjoyed them in the video game Jedi: Fallen Order.

4- The locations of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series

And the last point in favor to lose your head with the series of Obi-Wan Kenobi are the locations. The Star Wars universe is one of the richest and most diverse in fictional history. Its potential is enormous, almost incomprehensible. And, although we will return once again to tatooine, we will also visit new spaces. It has been confirmed today that there will be some planets with cyberpunk aesthetics. This “roll” has been glimpsed in The Book of Boba Fett. We also saw it in the city of Coruscant, during the prequel trilogy. Hopefully they give us a good cyberpunk world that will delight all of us who love this particular aesthetic of fictional universes.
