Non-Existent Stakes in Obi-Wan Kenobi snatched Me on The Show

Non-Existent Stakes in Obi-Wan Kenobi snatched Me on The Show ...

Spoilers are ahead of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series finale.

There''s a lot I love about Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney''s unimaginatively titled series about the post-prequel adventures of the titular Jedi. Ewan McGregor beautifully portrays Carrie Fisher''s strong character in the Star Wars story. It was a fun series, but it was frustrating because I knew that most of the main players would experience it again.

Leia is kidnapped by bounty hunters and later the Empire. Reva threatens to kill Owen Lars. In the final episode, she vows to kill him. Darth Vader and Vader agree on the fate of these characters. This is the show''s stakes, which aren''t just lowthey.

For the characters, the stakes are enormous. Obi-Wan is attempting to return to Alderaan, and the show secretly wants to kill Darth Vader. From their perspective, everything in the show''s timeline feels hugely important. However, for me as a viewer, it feels real value. Obi-Wan is still learning about Anakin''s childhood on Alderaan, checking in with a young, oblivious Luke. I had to watch these moments of the show.

Obi-Wan Kenobi manifests a genuine connection to the Star Wars family by retreading old, familiar ground. Perhaps more supporting material for the trilogys. Another story on Tatooine might be the book of Boba Fett, but there is still room for new revelations. More footage for the series'' lyrics, too. There are also new connections to the Skywalker clan, among others.

Among Obi-Wan Kenobi''s aforementioned characters, including Reva, Kumail Nanjiani''s fake Jedi Haja Estree, and Indira Varma''s Imperial turncoat, Tala Durith. These should have been those who I hadn''t discovered before but I didn''t get much time to hang out with them. I guess this is the issue with dividing a large multi-character sci-fi thriller like this into six episodes. A few additional might have given these new addition

I wanted Obi-Wan Kenobi to thrill, surprise, and make me think about it in almost every episode. However, when the credits arrived on episode 6, I was still waiting for it to happen. I don''t think we''ve seen the last of this kind of thing. Both Cassian Andor and Lando Calrissian are both getting their own shows. Nostalgia is a big business.
