Hello there. Fantastic news, Kenobi fans!

This article will dive deeper into the details of the upcoming show! Below is a featured image of the cast from the article!

We are all teaming with excitement as we rewatch our childhood favorite moments. I'm excited to hear some more snarky remarks and, hopefully, some backstory, too; I want to see some more of his girl, Satine Kryze. Poor Obi-wan. The article, however, states that the series will take place ten years after his battle with Anakin.

"We're shooting it much in the way The Mandalorian series was shot. We're using some of that technology. I really liked it, and I liked the format of it. I liked the Western nature of it; it’s an old-fashioned TV-Western. It's brilliant."

~ Ewan McGregor

Obi-Wan Kenobi will be available exclusively on Disney+. It is one of several Star Wars live-action shows following The Mandalorian's footsteps onto the streaming service. Others include the Ahsoka Tano series, The Book of Boba Fett, Rangers of the New Republic, the Rogue One prequel Andor, a Lando Calrissian series, and The Acolyte, plus several animated shows.

The prequels get a lot of hate from the originals’ fans, but personally, the prequels are still my favorite saga. Yes, some cringe, but The Office has many "cringe" moments, and it's great and successful!

The Clone Wars followed the prequels, a successful animated series with great quotes at the beginning of every episode - a great series for kids, better than most of the "brain-cell-shattering junk" that controls the majority of a screen's service. Avatar: The Last Airbender was always a fantastic show to grow up watching compared to the loose-writing of most shows that are "popular" today.

Obi-wan's story in the prequels and The Close Wars was one most of us fans adored. A clever character with a life filled with the loss of ones close to him. Ewan McGregor portrayed his character with witty grace.

Hayden Christensen is an actor who got some hate for his role, which I always felt was misplaced. This character’s position couldn’t be ideal; this character is "cringe" either way; you weren't supposed to like him. Set on a dark path, one meant to make you judge him negatively. There is nothing you want to encourage, like a young, sick man slaughtering dozens of innocents. Corrupted and "turned" by fear and hate, he was never meant to be normal or liked. His strange birth combined with Master Yoda and Master Windu's concerns were red flags from the beginning. Master Qui-Gon believed he would bring balance to the force; in the end, he did.

After being fed the ridiculous storylines Disney released with the sequel saga, I will just continue to be in denial and submerge my thoughts of them into an abyss and replace them with Star Wars Legends, once the Expanded Universe (EU). Most of the stories included had exceptional depth, compared to the bare and weak plots of the sequels, in my personal opinion. The writing was unique and more original, not as regurgitated and repetitive.

"Somehow, Palpatine returned."

What? It was funnier than anything, with a few dramatic moments. I would venture to say that the sequels were more "cringe" than the prequels could ever come close to being. Some of the actors were ashamed of the roles. That's what happens when the writing is forced and rushed, like Game of Thrones’ final season. Anybody can do writing, doesn't mean everybody is always good at it - especially if money is on the line.

I have high hopes for this new series. I look forward to seeing what they create. Many of us love the news of more "spin-off" movies and shows. After Rogue One was released, it quickly became my favorite Star Wars movie. Solo was a good movie, and I have relished watching The Mandolorian. As the Star Wars universe grows, I eagerly await more. Star Wars has always been an inspiration for me and my writing, and so I can't wait to see how the legacy continues! It's a beautiful thing, creating something so vast and loved; it stands firm against time.
