How 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Adds Context To The Sequel Trilogy
Star Wars is a multimedia interconnected universe. Sometimes certain stories can have an impact on other stories in the franchise in both direct and subtle ways. With every new tale, we add a bit more to the wider tapestry of the galaxy far, far away. The new Obi-Wan Kenobi series is already doing its part in adding depth to the overall Star Wars lore in many ways. Despite being a sequel to Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi is expanding on the entire Skywalker Saga, especially by adding context to the sequel trilogy itself.
Kenobi Writer Reveals Vader's Village Scene Was Originally Much More Extreme
In episode 3 of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker’s hatred for Kenobi was revealed through Darth Vader’s ruthless acts of violence in the village of Mapuzo. Vader force choked innocent villagers and even youths to draw Kenobi out from hiding. Vader knows his old Jedi Master too well and exploits Kenobi’s weakness by attacking innocent villagers. Vader force-choked a father, broke the son’s neck and dragged a woman through the street.
Kenobi Writer Explains Why Obi-Wan Didn't Know Anakin Survived Mustafar
As you should already know by now Anakin Skywalker is Darth Vader. At the end of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi have a battle to the death in the fiery pits of Mustafar. Anakin is left badly burnt, but thanks to the timely intervention of Darth Sidious, aka Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader is fully born as he becomes encased in his iconic armor. Until now, this was what we thought was the last meeting between Kenobi and Vader, before the start of the original trilogy. The announcement of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+, however, changed that, as it was advertised partially as a chance for a rematch between the two, before the Death Star.
Witnessing The Formation Of The Rebel Alliance One Disney+ Series At A Time
For a long time, the span between the end of the Republic and the destruction of the first Death Star went largely untouched. We knew the Jedi were gone, the Empire ruled the galaxy, and a rebellion had started. However, it was all very general information. We weren’t sure how the rebellion began or how the Jedi got eliminated. All we had to fall back on were the early rough drafts of Star Wars and Legends content that is basically considered rumors. However, slowly but surely, stories started to fill in the gaps.
The Ultimate Dilemma Of The Star Wars Universe
In five years, Star Wars will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. That's an incredibly long time for a franchise and IP to live and still put out new content. After reading a piece by fellow writer Gerald Petschk, I got to thinking about his solid point about a new villain.
What Is Behind The Writing On the Wall In 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR OBI-WAN KENOBI EPISODE 3 After the third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi was released last Wednesday, all everyone could talk about was the meeting between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi and their subsequent lightsaber duel. However, the episode also introduced a new character in Tala Durith (played by Indira Varma) who revealed that there was an “underground railroad” network that helped Jedi escape the fate of Order 66. Everyone’s ears perked up when Obi-Wan loudly exclaimed the name Quinlan Vos when he perused the names carved into the walls of the safehouse on Mapuzo. First appearing in The Clone Wars animated series, Quinlan Vos was the maverick Jedi Master known for not quite following the established Jedi rules. The implications of Vos’s name being mentioned aside, fans with sharp eyes and competency in Aurebesh also spotted other notable names on the wall.
'Kenobi' Writer Speaks Up About The Fate Of The Grand Inquisitor
The Grand Inquisitor means trouble. And not just when he is intimidating settlers in order to discover the whereabouts of a Jedi in hiding, or when he is executing a thug who kidnapped young Princess Leia. When the leader of the Imperial Inquisitors first appeared in flesh and blood in the teaser for Obi-Wan Kenobi, some fans went up in arms as the Pau’an looked quite different from his appearance in Star Wars: Rebels and in the Darth Vader comics. Instead of the elongated head that is typical for this race, his head was much more rounded in live-action and he did not have the yellow Sith eyes. When the show finally premiered, at least the yellow eyes were back, but the unusual head shape remained.
'The Mandalorian' Actress Teases Expanded Role

Why Does Darth Vader Allow Obi-Wan Kenobi To Live In Their Latest Lightsaber Duel?
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR OBI-WAN KENOBI EPISODE 3 The rematch of the century finally occurred in episode 3 of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader faced off against his Master Obi-Wan Kenobi a decade after their first almost fatal duel on Mustafar. In their encounter on Mustafar, Obi-Wan Kenobi pretty much dominated Anakin Skywalker. Ten years later, it was Darth Vader. The second lightsaber duel did not last as long and ended quite differently than the duel on Mustafar. Although Darth Vader dominated the duel, he allowed Obi-Wan Kenobi to survive. Did Darth Vader feel remorse for Kenobi or was it part of his plot to find and kill more Jedi and to make Obi-Wan Kenobi suffer as he had on Mustafar?
'Jedi: Fallen Order' | Who Exactly Was Eno Cordova?
It has been over two and a half years since the last time we saw the character from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This game included many unique characters that weaved into the galaxy that we have never seen before. Fallen Order introduced us to some of our favorite characters, such as Cal Kestis, Trilla, Cere Junda, Greez Dritus, etc. Each of these characters from the fan-favorite game had their own fascinating backgrounds and reasons for coming together. We are all looking forward to seeing more of these characters in the next installment of the series coming next year. One of this installment’s more mysterious characters is Cere Junda’s former Jedi Master, Eno Cordova.
'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Premiere Breaks This All-Time Record On Disney+
Rebels across the galaxy, take a bow. Citizens of the Republic, take a bow. Star Wars fans around the globe, take a bow! WE DID IT! It would not have taken a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that Obi-Wan Kenobi was going to be popular, but could they have predicted just how big it would be? Well, the numbers are officially in, and Obi-Wan Kenobi is the most-watched premiere in the short but successful history of Disney+. Others may disagree on whether the series deserves such recognition. As a child of the prequel generation, the relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker had an impact on me growing up. I would have to say that the series deserves this recognition and more.
