A fan-made Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer imagines the legendary Jedi going on his rematch with Darth Maul and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader.
A brand new Obi-Wan Kenobi fan trailer imagines the character’s rematch with Darth Maul and Darth Vader. Ewan McGregor is reprising his role as the fan-favorite Jedi in his own TV series on Disney+. It will tackle a portion of the time he spent in Tatooine in between the prequel and original trilogy. While Disney and Lucasfilm are still keeping plot specifics under wraps, one fan visualizes what the series’ first trailer might look like.
Originally hatched as a film, Obi-Wan Kenobi was eventually reworked to become a TV series on Disney+ and was officially announced during D-23 2019. Meanwhile, Disney’s Investor Day 2020 brought more information regarding the project. Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, revealed more pertinent details about the show, including when it’s set. She also confirmed long-existing rumors that it will mark Hayden Christensen’s return to Star Wars for the first time since the prequel trilogy, reprising his role as Darth Vader. This effectively sets up his rematch with his former Jedi Master. However, this may not only be the only exciting fight in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi show.
YouTube channel Teaser PRO came up with a concept trailer for the upcoming Star Wars series that sees Obi-Wan traveling in Tatooine after the fall of the Republic and Jedi Order. Clocking in at two minutes and 30 seconds, the clip teases his separate fights with Darth Maul and Darth Vader in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Watch the video below:
Joining McGregor and Christensen in Obi-Wan Kenobi are Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine. Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, on the other hand, are coming back to reprise their roles as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru Lars. But since Lucasfilm has yet to release any kind of content from the show aside from the special featurette during Disney+ Day, no one from the show’s supporting cast was prominently featured in the clip. Instead, it focuses on its titular character with voice-overs from Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Jedi Master Yoda, as well as, Darth Maul and Darth Vader.
Obi-Wan’s fight with Darth Vader is already confirmed for the show, so while that’s exciting, it isn’t the most interesting idea from the fan trailer above. Instead, it’s the idea that the Jedi Master could reunite with Darth Maul. Years after their last encounter in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels resurrected the rivalry with a brief but powerful interaction between the pair at the end of season 3. In it, Maul met his end fairly quickly with Obi-Wan Kenobi using his improved fighting skills to take him down. Despite the quick match-up, it’s arguably one of the best fighting sequences in Star Wars history.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is slated to release on Disney+ in 2022.
