Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi ‧ My impressions of the first two episodes
Since the acquisition of Lucasart by Disney, I wondered if it was a good or bad news to see the big franchise Stars Wars pass in the hands of the big Disney machine. With the series The Mandalorian, we had an idea of the seriousness that the new owners would give to other “spine-off” based on the Star Wars universe. To everyone’s surprise, we were treated to a young Luc Skywalker at the time of his training with Yoda. Several like me said that everything was allowed to deliver related series worthy of the Star Wars name. The strength was great in us!
What a fascinating character this Kenobi Obi-Wan embodied by the fantastic Ewan McGregor. He found and trained Anakin Skywalker, a promising Jedi. Ultimately, Obi-Wan was wrong and Anakin felt the power of dark force. This was followed by the execution of order 66 aimed at eliminating the Jedi by the clones. The story of the new series of Disney Series places us 10 years after Obi-Wan Kenobi fought against his apprentice Anakin and, according to his alleged death, placed the two children of Padmé Amidala (the woman) of Anakin towards adoption families. (Luke and Leia were separated). The Jedi are almost dead and the hunt is underway to find and eliminate the remaining Jedi. Obi-Wan Kenobi is hidden and does not want to get involved in the fights having the sole mandate to protect and guide young Luc Skywalker. But Leia’s adoptive parents, the Orgona, will need Obi-Wan Kenobi to carry it.
I must say that I liked the first 2 episodes. The series is young but respect with the past is there. The effects are good and the young actress who embodies Princess Léa is credible. I wonder what this series of 6 episodes has in store for only, hoping that the fight of laser swords between Obi-Wan and Dark Vader (Annakin) is completely rebuilt.
In the end I will tell you that I like the series on date… File to follow.
