The first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are out now on Disney+, which implies we’re all strolling round the home making lightsaber noises and eagerly awaiting the subsequent episode. The present sees Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprise their roles as Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader from the Star Wars prequels, alongside a slew of different acquainted faces. This, greater than some other Star Wars present that has premiered on Disney+, feels deeply rooted in George Lucas’ movies; it has to, contemplating that Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place round midway between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
The restricted sequence additionally has loads of new characters, and there’s one specifically who might need regarded a bit acquainted.
