3 Reasons I’m Hyped For The Obi-Wan Kenobi Show
No seriously, do we need any other reason outside of the fact that this show is indeed more Star Wars content for all of us nerds to consume and enjoy at 2AM every day a new episode comes out? Oh, you actually came here for additional reasons. Ok fine, that’s fair I suppose. So let me tell you exactly why I’m super hyped for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi to launch in just a few short months!
Star Wars Rebels introduced us to the inquisitors on the silver screen and while they certainly feel out of place at times (Since I always found myself asking “Why didn’t Darth Vader just handle this himself?” or “When did the rule of two become the rule of 27?”) they still added a really cool element to the world of Star Wars. Not only did some of them have interesting and plot twist worthy stories behind them but some of them were just really cool characters to watch in combat. Seriously, if you haven’t watched Star Wars: Rebels you really need to and just remember I was the first to tell you that “Helicopters are fucking cool!”. Yes, I just quoted myself, feel free to quote me as well.
I actually quite like Tatooine to be honest, it offers that vintage .5 past light speed technology kind of vibe that originally drew me into the original trilogy, none of this chrome plated everything, give me a little rust! Anyways, while I like Tatooine, I’ll admit that it can get a little old when the majority of Star Wars Storys have taken place or were heavily influenced by Tatooine (Seriously, just calling it Jakku, doesn’t make it any less Tatooine-y) thankfully, according to the new trailer that got released recently for Obi-Wan Kenobi we can confirm we’re either going somewhere that is not Tatooine, or we just found the oceans of Tatooine. Regardless of where we’re going, I can be excited to not spend my free time feeling sandy from a TV show!
Obi-Wan Kenobi is not a fan of using a blaster. Blasters aren’t a fan of Obi-Wan Kenobi. In the trailer we got for this show we get to see the legendary Jedi Knight indeed wield and utilize a proper blaster pistol. We only ever saw this once…
