Emperor Kennedy and her apprentice, Darth Chow (two there should be, no more, no less) have been doing the rounds and talking about the possibility of a second season of Obi-Wan-Kenobi.
So know you’ve had the time to watch the final episode of Obi-Wan-Kenobi and you’ve either thrown your remote at the TV is disgust or like me, hate yourself for enjoying it, it’s time for an update on the possibility of more Ben.
Darth Chow, who helmed all six episodes, says Obi-Wan Kenobi was seen as a one-off event.
“For this one, we really did conceive it to be a limited series. It really is one big story with a beginning, middle, and end. So, we weren’t thinking past that.”
Emperor Kennedy cackles:
“But I think if there’s huge engagement and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly give that consideration because the fans, they speak to us. And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; it’s answering the why then,’ then we’ll do it. But we’ll see.”
Bullshit! They didn’t conceive this as a limited series at all. Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most beloved characters in Star Wars and has been for over 40 years. This should have been a cash cow with limitless possibilities. Green lighting this for a second, third, fourth season or maybe even a spin off movie was a given… if it was done right. But it wasn’t.
From the get go the Obi-Wan Kenobi series was all about the force being female. Focusing on 10 year old Princess Leia and Reeeeeva the bestest Inquisitor ever. Obi-Wan played second fiddle up until the last episode when they dangled a carrot by showing Obi-Wan with his force power back, with Qui-Gon and Palpatine making an appearance.
I’m not going to go off on one now. I enjoyed the last episode even though I agree with most of the problems NGL points out in his review. Instead, NGL and my good self are going to discuss it on Sunday’s livestream.
