Obi-Wan Kenobi is lastly getting the backstory he deserves.
After years of understanding the Jedi Grasp as an eccentric recluse, a sensible mentor, a begrudging padawan, and finally a grieving brother, followers will see the character’s journey achieved by his upcoming Disney+ assortment.
To that affect, there’s one place we’ve however to see him play: the guardian angel watching Luke grow up from afar. Thankfully, that’s set to differ in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Whereas the plot of the seres stays a thriller, new particulars counsel it might presumably be impressed by a non-canon novel.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi co-star (and star of Eternals) Kumail Nanjiani describes the taking footage of 1 scene, describing a “warehouse” setting:
“The first scene we shot, it was Star Wars exterior the house home windows, with aliens strolling spherical and ships flying by and all these items, nonetheless the rest of it merely appeared like a warehouse. So I did a couple of takes after which Ewan was like, ‘You acknowledge, none of that’s precise.’ I knew the house home windows weren’t precise, nonetheless the partitions weren’t each! I appeared and I was like, ‘Wow, the partitions are projected.’ The one issue that was precise in all the room was the desk I was sitting at.”
For some followers, this was sufficiently obscure with regards to not revealing an extreme quantity of regarding the assortment’ course.,
Nevertheless the thought of a warehouse has led some followers to imagine the position Nanjiani describes is certainly Dannar’s Claim, a one-stop-shop featured carefully in Kenobi, a Legends novel by John Jackson Miller that adopted Obi-Wan via his years hiding on Tatooine.
Lost Legends is an Inverse assortment regarding the forgotten lore of our favorite tales.
Dannar’s Declare was a standard retailer, inn, and cantina run by the widowed Anileen Calwell, who later bought right here to have romantic feelings for Obi-Wan. Her feelings weren’t reciprocated, and Anileen was lastly resettled on Alderaan, the place she acquired an coaching.
Dannar’s Declare sounds an horrible lot identical to the Walmart of Tatooine, it’s the just about undoubtedly candidate for a “warehouse” setting. There’s only one scenario with this idea: the Kenobi novel doesn’t care for Obi-Wan’s larger aim on Tatooine, focusing as a substitute on a facet quest involving Anileen, Jabba, and a no-good vigilante named Orrin Gault.
What does this suggest for Obi-Wan Kenobi the gathering? Provided that The Mandalorian wasn’t completely about Little one Yoda to begin with, it’s likely Obi-Wan Kenobi obtained’t be completely about Obi-Wan confronting Darth Vader. Whereas it’s confirmed Hayden Christensen will reprise his place as Anakin, that confrontation isn’t enough to fill a jam-packed Star Wars assortment.
It’s likely Obi-Wan will as a substitute have to beat antagonists totally unrelated to his mission of watching over Luke — and the Kenobi novel offers the correct side-mission to underline Obi-Wan as a romantic lead and a fundamental hero.
Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on Disney+ in 2022.
