i think Mando would still be a kid at this stage. Though they could get Daniel Logan, the kid who played Young Boba to show up as he'd be about that age. I'm hoping they steer clear of too much interplay. 

You're right. I forgot the timeline.

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

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 intervi

Darth Vader. I ‘get’ the Inquisitors but hate the concept of it. Darth Vader hunted down and destroyed the Jedi Knights….by outsourcing the work to these guys.

Inquisitors.  Specifically, inquisitors from the cartoons.   

I'll admit i didn't get the inquisitors at first, but it kinda made sense. Who would have been the people going around the Galaxy hunting down the Jedi? Not every bounty hunter is Cad Bane. 

What looks to be the Grand Inquisitor is off. But i thought Cad Bane looked it as well that first episode.

I thought it looked really good. As far as cartoon characters making the move to live action Ive been critical before but just have to see how they do it. If they are introduced early in the show so the non cartoon audience actually knows them from the show itself then it should work fine. Plus something tells me the Inquisitor who was created specifically for the show (the black woman we see face to face with Owen) will be the main one featured here.

I don't mind the concept of inquisitors per se, but I don't like the idea of using characters from Rebels for this.  We've already seen that, and like you said, the Grand Inquisitor is off.

Yeah, especially Obi Wan? Vader would want to hunt him down personally.  Hopefully, Vader will actually be the big bad of this series.

Do we know they are specifically hunting Obi Wan? Its certainly possible that this new Inquisitor is just out following the scent of a Jedi before they realize exactly which Jedi it is. At that point Vader gets involved personally.

I think 99.9% he is. He is definitely in it, but again just makes the Inquisitors ‘mini-bosses’.

But I’d say Inquisitor happens to bump into Obi Wan, then Vader comes in to personally deal with it.

Obi-Wan leaves Tatooine for a reason. I can't imagine he'd just bail on watching Luke, even for a short time, for nothing. I'm willing to bet Alderaan and the Organas are involved somehow.

The Inquisitors were Palpatine's pet project though. They weren't just Jedi hunters. They tracked force sensitive kids for roundup. Any problem they couldn't solve, Vader came in and cleaned up. Basically what you saw on Rebels. 

Dave Filoni imo did a great job taking the holes in Lucas's story and filling them in. He got creative and I think the medium could support it. Characters like Cad Bane, Hondo, the Grand Inquisitor, and even Thrawn added to the lore so to speak. I could live without the Bendu and light speed jumping space whales however. Does all of it translate to live action? Ahsoka worked I guess. I'm so used to Ashley Eckstein's voice that is weird to me. After seeing how good Hondo's animatronic was a Galaxy's Edge, Cad Bane's makeup just seemed like it was on a budget. Same with the Grand Inquisitor. God forbid they try to do Thrawn. Hell I'll argue that the Grand Inquisitor's story didn't translate to live action because it requires too much knowledge of the EU.

He probably leaves for a booty call. People often forget their commitments when that happens.

Maul killed his girlfriend. Why do you think he made quick work of him the second time?

I'm looking forward to it.  I've haven't watched any of the cartoons though, aside from a few episodes of the 1st season of the Clone Wars.  I just couldn't get it into.  So, these Inquisitors are new to me.

Supposedly Obi-Wan is 1 season and done, just 6 episodes.  So should be interesting.

Yeah again, I get what they are there for and everything I’m just not a fan. 

This isn’t an issue about them bringing characters from the cartoons into live action (well for me), I think with the exception of Cad Bane it’s all been handled well - and Bane wasn’t a negative because he came from the cartoons, just poorly developed in the show itself.

Its just in this case, I would have preferred them to stay in the animated shows and video games. 

I mean it’s not a deal breaker, maybe they do it so well it becomes a redundant complaint. But seeing them doesn’t get me excited. 

EDIT - Also I think it’s a guarantee Thrawn will show up soon, he was name dropped in the 2nd season of Mando.

I actually hope that is the case. 

I would like to see an Obi Wan/Vader showdown that demonstrates how powerful Vader is, and gives us insight why Obi Wan couldn't challenge him again.  Maybe even Obi Wan fakes his death so Vader stops looking?

I'd rather not see Obi and Vader meet. That really takes away from ANH. Maybe Ob1 meets a Jedi in hiding, Vader finds them, and Ob1 clears out before. That way "i sense something. Something I've but felt since..." Still means something.

"i sense something. Something I've but felt since..." could also mean the last time he faced Obi Wan and thought him dead at the end of that meeting.

 

Besides I WANT to see a live action Vader at the height of his power.  Rogue One was just a hint.

All I can see for a rematch is some concept art that may not have anything to do with the actual show and fans getting excited.

Rumor mongers can’t even agree on who said it would be the “rematch of the century” - was it Kathleen Kennedy? Deborah Chow? Just someone who saw footage at Disney Investor Day?

Rematch aside though, if they do meet it isn’t a retcon. As Zathras mentioned, there isn’t anything definitive to say that RoTS was the last time they met and it actually wouldn’t make any sense if it was. 

In RotJ it’s implied Obi Wan tried to bring Anakin back from the Dark Side. We haven’t seen that - my money is on that being the lead up for the duel. Obi Wan’s last ditch effort at saving Anakin.

The only issue is Vader's line "when I left you I was but the learner," but I mean, how often do humans say shit that's not entirely accurate, especially in an emotionally charged situation? I've literally never done it once, but the rest of you plebs have, so I'm not worried about that as a plot hole.

They might try work around that by having Obi Wan teach him a lesson during the encounter. Lame but you can get around it.

Anakin said he was a slow learner, maybe Obi ends up chopping him up again. You eventually learn after getting cut in half twice.
