  1. Here's the thing though. This isn't Vader's story. Vader had six movies to tell the story you're talking about, It's been done. It's established. This story is Obi-Wan's. As much as a big character as he is in the saga, he only has a few big moments as a character. He is meant to be the baseline Jedi so that we can see how Anakin, and then Luke, differ on their own paths to become Jedi. Obi-Wan is a central character to Star Wars, but he has always been a supporting one. This show is the reverse. We have gotten more out of him, on a human personal level, in these three episodes than we di

  3. Agree with Tank on the “nope never.” If Vader finds out about Luke in this series, we should all just cancel our Disney+ subscriptions and never watch SW again. I’ve heard Filoni in past interviews say (in response to Clone Wars when Vader dueled Ahsoka on whether Ahsoka could’ve saved Anakin) the only one who could bring the good out of Vader is Luke in ROTJ. Anyone or any other situation Vader finds himself in, as much as we the audience would like to think Anakin could show some compassion for his former friends, that would completely nullify ROTJ.

  4. Yeah, the team has been great so far, even when I flat out say I have no idea what’s going on or what I’m supposed to do. They mostly just laugh. They’ve been very supportive, which is great, it’s definitely helped my insecurity. Yiu guys are all great too. I come in here and I just dump it all unfiltered because I trust all of you. I know you know that’s what it is, too, so I don’t have to worry anyone thinks I’m a basket case or just freaking out stressing all the time. What a weird thing to happen on a Star Wars message board. getting sentimental in my old age

  7. Enjoying it too, even with all the groan-inducing nitpicks, i.e. Obi Wan walking around all those Imperials with Leia hiding inside that large jacket Looney Tunes style, Reva doing a lot of villain talk. That last scene when Leia held Obi Wan’s hand shows us why she would name her son Ben. Something that came to my mind when I saw "Episode IV" in the title was ANH. So I went to look it up and sure enough, I wasn't the only one thinking about the films: https://decider.com/2022/06/08/obi-wan-kenobi-theory-rhymes-with-prequels-original-trilogy/

  10. So did I. But then I remembered Vader is still looking for him in Rebels. So he couldn’t think he was dead. When Obi Wan sees Anakin inside Vader’s mask and tells him in tears he’s sorry for everything, that felt like he was trying to plead with Anakin to give up his Sith ways. He was asking Anakin for forgiveness for Anakin ending up the way he did. And not just literally in the suit, but overall with everything that happened, the deaths of Shmi and Padme, the Jedi’s obliviousness to what was happening around them and their unwillingness to look past their strict codes, and Ob

If it gets to that point and you have decided to let her go you have not failed her. Ventilator weaning is also hard and stressful for loved ones. I'll warn you it might be a bit of a Rollercoaster. I'm thinking about you and Tina and praying hard.

  14. Anyone else see how this is getting review bombed on RT and other sites online in the wake of Star Wars and Ewan personally calling out racist fans? Its fucking pathetic. I mean that is self evident but just wanted to point it out.

  15. So, with the knowledge that my script is never going to be anything more than a script hanging out on my computer, instead of finishing draft number 3, I think I'm going to try to turn it into more of a novel. That way, if I ever get it good enough to want to share with others, I can always self-publish and say "Hey, I wrote a book!"

  20. No doubt... but do we NEED a season 2? This is kind of the problem with Star Wars, right? We don't NEED to force another story in there and stretch the credibility of continuity even more. Unless they do something totally different it just waters down the magic even more. Kennedy just came out and basically admitted it was a wrong step to try and inhabit the same space around the known saga. It sounds like Taiki Watitti's film is going to be a shift to a new story completely removed from the Skywalker saga. That, to me, is the way to go. Kind of like Next Generation did for Star Trek.

  23. I wouldn’t say his plan to track the Falcon failed spectacularly. He was the only one who was right about that. The plan worked. They found the Rebel base. And he had warned everyone all along to not be so proud about building the Death Star. But no one listened, especially Tarkin who kept underestimating the Rebels’ abilities to mount a counterattack, right down to being too proud to evacuate.

  24. That is a problem with fitting shows into existing stories. We know Obi Wan and Leia are both gonna be fine. The Tarla character obviously could die but thats such small potatoes compared to iconic characters like Obi Wan and Leia. The show really is about Obi Wan finding himself though so he goes from the beaten down man at the start of this series to the guy ready and willing to join the fight in ANH. I think its doing a good job of that. I also thought the scene where he rescues Leia in the dark was really cool and well done. His whole escape from the base was cool and its pretty

  25. Reva turning Leia’s droid into a tracker reminds me of Vader putting a tracker on the Falcon in ANH. I liked the callback. Otherwise though, I think Reva kinda sucks as a villain. Everything she does kinda fails. I was kinda hoping to see a recognizable prequel Jedi in the tomb, like Ki-Adi Mundi or someone, but I didn’t miss it.

  32. They showed the first two episodes during Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim in a theater set up for the convention. I have to say, I hadn’t realized how much I miss watching Star Wars in a theater. It makes a huge difference to watch new content in a theater packed with fans as opposed to watching it at home. Lots of cheering, clapping, laughs and there were even people crying when we saw Order 66. My one criticism of the first two episodes is the Inquisitors showed up on Tatooine just as the plan to kidnap Leia and lure Obi Wan out of hiding is set in motion. What an incredible coincidenc

  34. Howard was definitely a tool— but everything he said about them was spot on. It’s a sign of a great show when they can give you characters like Howard who are there to hate, but then you feel sympathy for them. Since Chuck’s death Howard was becoming more sympathetic even between his tool moments. Similarly, Lalo is pure evil, but has such a big personality that he comes off as charismatic as hell. Given that we know the fates of Saul/Jimmy/Gene, Mike, and Gus, it’s really coming down to how things will unfold with Lalo and Kim. My only complain is that Nacho was taken off the t
