Obi-wan Kenobi end of season thoughts(WITH SPOILERS)
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
So I’m a little late on sending this out but wanted to focus this issue on my thoughts on Obi-wan Kenobi now that we have finished the series. Starting off with that, is this a season 1 or are we done? I’m in a strange place with this one, I feel that the final episode wrapped things up nicely and was a great send off for Ewen in this role but I also want more (trying not to be all sith about it though…)
Instead of reflecting on each episode I’ll start to think about how I feel about the entire series, well for me it’s my favourite of any of the Star Wars content made in the Disney era. Obi-wan is my favourite character in Star Wars and this story has me so satisfied with his journey. I got almost everything I wanted (just wanted Obi-wan in his clone wars armour but we did get a great flashback), the amount of Vader was perfect, the music was different and fitting to the story, the acting was excellent and it gave me plenty of surprises.
I grew up with the original trilogy and came to also love the prequels after watching all of The Clone Wars but I always loved Ewen as Obi-wan so this series has a lot of meaning for me, especially seeing him work through his emotions and guilt to ultimately hope. It’s a great message for me as I struggle with the day to day and try to remain hopeful and open to change. Looking back I think I was more excited for this series than I was the sequels, that’s how much I’ve grown to love the prequels.
Anakin/Vader was haunting in this series, like a horror film. Those red tones on his open mask in the finale is something that I think is the most scary of anything I’ve seen in all of Star Wars. The work there was amazing, the voice, the music the lighting - everything!
Seeing a lot of Leia was a surprise and a welcome one, the actor was amazing and I really felt the connection to Carrie Fishers performance.
Beru and Owen were unexpected standouts, especially in the finale.
The inquisitors were great in live action and I’d love to see more of them, maybe in Andor??
I hope you all enjoyed it, let me know your thoughts in the comments on this post.
May the force be with you
Figures I've bought this week
A new section or just for this one? I love collecting Star Wars stuff, especially 3.75” figures. This week I picked up these two from a local toy store
