The new Star Wars series has already premiered its first two chapters on Disney +. Obi-Wan Kenobi returned to the screen and gave us quite a few surprises. One of these happened at the end of the second episode and left us with some doubts about what could happen in the future. Read more here!
After so long, we finally saw each other again. Ewan McGregor What Obi-Wan Kenobi. Disney+ The first two episodes of the series that have this beloved Jedi Master as the protagonist and that takes us 10 years after the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and nine years before Episode IV: A new hope. If you haven’t seen the episodes yet, beware the spoilers that follow.
Before talking about the events of these first episodes, we want to highlight how useful it was and how nice the beginning of the first chapter was. See that summary of what happened before in starwarslike the relationship between Anakin Skywalker Y Obi Wan or the execution of Order 66serves not only to locate us in time, but also to understand how important those moments are going to be in the rest of the episodes.
Now yes. The first chapter of Obi-Wan Kenobi shows us its protagonist on Tatooine (yes, again on the same planet, but this time for a short time) taking care of Luke Skywalker. However, if there is something that is clear to us in this episode, it is that Obi Wan is broken for not having been able to prevent Anakin went over to the Dark Side of the Force, in addition to knowing that the Jedi they lost the war. With a Kenobi alone and defeated, that he has lost everything (including hope), we see that he lives his fairly routine days: he works, he goes home, he watches over Luke and so.
While that is noticeable on several occasions, we see it even more when Kenobi talk to the guy Owen on Luke and more than anything when a Jedi (Navi) He asks for your help to escape from the inquisitors. Not helping him Obi Wan shows that he is no longer the Jedi master we knew. However, a scene that excited many is when our protagonist wants to communicate/connect with his mentor. Qui-Gon Jinn. This mention made several fans excited about what could happen in the next episodes. Will we see or hear again Liam Neeson like the jedi master?
From the beginning, the series already explains to us what the inquisitorsfrom the hand of The Grand Inquisitor and a monologue that occurs in a tavern, and the leading role that they will have. More than anything one in particular: Revathe Third Sister, who is obsessed with finding Obi-Wan Kenobi to take it to Darth Vader. For this, ignoring the orders of his superior, Reva plans to have bounty hunters kidnap none other than Read Organa. We didn’t see that coming.
From the trailers we had been considering that Luke could have a certain role in the series, since Obi Wan I was taking care of him. However, it seems that we did the ole. yes the young man Luke Skywalker He appeared from afar and made us all smile, but, as we saw in these first chapters, we could get to see read much more than his brother.
let’s go back to Reva. This Third Sister from the zero moment demonstrates her character, ambition and how ruthless she is to her, surpassing the Grand Inquisitor even. However, they also planted doubts and mysteries about her: Who is she? Where she comes from? Because the Grand Inquisitor treats her so bad? And more than anything, what is it? Kenobi owes him, why is she so obsessed with him?
If we consider how the second chapter ended, it seems that Reva will be the villain of this series, but keep in mind that all eyes are on Darth Vader and we do not believe that anyone will take the position (much less overshadow it) as the best villain. Let us remember that we will see one or two confrontations between Anakin Y Obi Wan, which have the fans more than excited.
But let’s talk about the second episode and the doubts it brought. As we told you above, we finally left Tatooine and got to know Daiyu, the planet where they have read kidnapped and where it is full of bounty hunters and criminals. Nevertheless, Obi Wanwith the help of Kumail Nanjiani (Hajawho is a con man posing as a Jedi), finds the princess and they are ready to go.
Like no one thought they were going to go so easy. The inquisitors (Reva more than anything) they obviously don’t want to let him get away and they find him. This is where we stop for a while. In the moment in wich Reva has a Kenobi cornered, comes the Grand Inquisitor to tell him that he was going to take care of it, but the Third Sister (as they don’t want to get the credit for catching the Jedi) decides to kill? to the Grand Inquisitor.
This surprised many fans of starwars, not just because he Grand Inquisitor is not going to have as much weight as we thought, but also because that character is a very important villain in Star Wars Rebelsa series that takes place 4 years after the events narrated in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Although this decision could have been made to mark the path of Reva and demonstrate your ambition and the desire you have to look good with Darth Vader, We do not believe that they risk killing a character as important as the Grand Inquisitor (who has a future ahead of him). We will have to wait for the next chapters to find out what happened to him.
After removing from the medium Grand Inquisitor, Reva tells to Obi Wan that Anakin Skywalker He is alive and has been looking for him for 10 years. This obviously shocks the Jedi to such an extent that he can’t help but make a connection with his former Padawan through the Force. And that’s when we see Darth Vader open your eyes and listen to his iconic breathing. The emotion is great and the desire to see Hayden Christensen with a suit and everything is even more.
