The Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer dropped earlier currently, and the only point people on line can say is “Obi-Wan? A lot more like [Austin Powers voice] ‘Oh, behave.’” Or, perhaps a lot more appropriately, “Hello there.”
Yes, admirers from across the galaxy (or, more exclusively, across Twitter) are loving Ewan McGregor’s return to Tatooine in which he can spy on tiny child Luke Skywalker. The series picks up very a couple of decades following the Chroon-Tan B-Device midwife droid sent toddler Luke in Revenge Of The Sith. Judging by the trailer, Luke’s first words should have been, “Now this is podracing,” since he’s in comprehensive-on Anakin cosplay.
Like all issues Luke, it is captured the imagination of Star Wars lovers, who are wowed by the series’ use of de-getting old technologies (we’re going to presume that that is de-aged Mark Hammill actively playing young Luke). It’s an exciting picture, Kenobi viewing in excess of the young Skywalker, and supporters are by now loving the Peeping Tom edition of
Obi-Wan old Ben Kenobi.
Of training course, that is not all interesting followers. Loads is going on in the Obi-Wan trailer and outdoors it. Deborah Chow, director of some of the ideal Mandalorian episodes, will helm the series, and Jon Favreau will not be crafting any of it, which is a aid, evidently, to some. We think that has a little something to do with the Vespas controversy in Guide Of Boba Fett. But that does not clarify why others are energized to have Joel Egerton back as Uncle Owen. Star Wars fans are indeed a distinct breed.
Lovers of the Star Wars prequels have no lack of points to get enthusiastic about. Apart from McGregor and, of study course, Egerton, other prequel mainstays are returning for the sequence, which includes John Williams’ “Duel Of The Fates” and “Battle Of The Heroes” and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader breath. And they claimed this would be various from the prequels.
Just one appealing matter that folks are pointing out is the convenient timing of the trailer’s launch. It might feel like a long time back, but it was only Monday that Disney CEO Bob Chapek opted not to contest Florida’s homophobic “Don’t Say Gay” laws. This kind of protest from a substantial company, like Disney, a prime financial driver in a very little city termed Orlando, Florida, could possibly make some waves. But rather, they opted to launch an additional Star Wars and a picture of Pinocchio from 1941. It is as if hundreds of thousands of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
Star Wars delivers out the weirdest sides in folks, from forgetting about their moral values to becoming fired up by an physical appearance from Uncle Owen, a male who [spoiler alert] attempted to reduce Luke from likely to riot college so that he can farm moisture.
Continue to, prequel enthusiasts and haters seem to be aligned on a person thing: Ewan McGregor was very good as Obi-Wan Kenobi. So will this last but not least be the property that unites the Star Wars trustworthy, skeptical, and disenchanted and brings balance to the Power? Possibly not, but just one can hope.
Obi-Wan Kenobi claims “hello there” to Disney+ on May 22.
