Watched the fight scenes again. Standalone, they are fucking amazing.
A lot of the audience has Skywalker fatigue. Obi Wan is prob my favorite character, but this show was eh
Give us the KOTOR movie/miniseries we deserve.
It’s evident what shows/episodes Favreau and Filoni don’t work on.
Thought it was good on its own merits but it’s infuriating to me how, once again, we have a new show/movie that doesn’t care about the violence its story does to existing shows/movies
episode 6 was amazing. all the feels during it
No duel of the fates sucked though.
like most I thought the series took a while to get to where it needed to go but the payoff was fucking great
As Meatball put it, they saved the best for the last 5 minutes...Hello There and Qui Gon. His mouth was agape the whole last 5 minutes
Could not see one fucking thing during the Reva Luke chase and Obi’s escape from the hole in the ground.
It was all done very well but felt very procedural, largely because of a problem with all gap filling prequel type content: the audience knows that Obi-Wan, Vader, Leia, Luke are not actually in mortal danger. Yet those are the characters we’re supposed to care for. So it undercuts a lot of the dramatic tension and it all plays out like an encyclopedia entry about how it all happened.
The final scene for him in Ep6 sets up a perfect starting spot for this show
this season was a little hit or miss but I'll sign up sight unseen for all the Ewan as Obi-Wan you're willing to give me.
Also, I love that the battle started the same was as in Episode 3.
Obi wan responding to anakin- "I will do what I must"
I was really waiting for a high ground reference when Vader was staring down at obi wan in that crater.
ehhhh not sure about this. We saw him kill maul in rebels and he really should just be a hermit the next ten years.
would rather see Vader become full Vader and other early resistance stuff if we must stay in this time period
Thought the busted helmet sequence was pretty awesome.
I’d give the series a B
Favreau wrote book boba fett
so idk what this is supposed to mean
For reals the best part of the entire series was when Vader and Kenobi were fighting and Obi got inside and used his lightsaber hilt to absolutely fuck Vader’s electronics up
That whole fight scene might have been the best fight scene in any Star Wars.
As soon as I get this lift shithead in bed I’m gonna watch it again.
Honestly episodes 3, 5, & 6 I thought were really very good.
Little, but close enough.
Loved it but it should have been a movie
lines I didn't catch at first but really like -
Obi-Wan tells Leia that she is the future
then tells Owen that Luke just needs to be a boy and "the future" will take care of itself.
Imo that’s because he sees how strong leia became on her own without his help.
his was a highly defensive-focused fighting style, unlike that of Mace Windu which was close to darkside fighting, or the acrobatic one used by Yoda and to a lesser extent his padawan Dooku.
What if they killed ObiWan and the OT kenobi is a clone like Joruus
A Book reader of the legacy series you are.
Did a little research. Qui Gon used and trained Obi in form 4, Ataru, the aggressive fighting we saw in TPM and that Yoda used. After Qui Gon died Obi switched exclusively to form 3, Soresu, which was a more defensive style. This is what Anakin (who used form 5, Djem Su, which was the powerful beat your ass form) was used to dueling. Switching back to Ataru gave him the edge over Vader. Versus Maul he started as Soresu then when he switched to Ataru Maul tried to attack him with the same move that killed Qui Gon and Obi Wan was expecting it and that’s how he creampied him in 5 seconds.
thank the good folks on the wookiepedia forums for that info
well that would’ve been very subversive and fun
Series should have been 3 episodes.
Yep. Kenobi would've worked well as a ~ 2 hour movie.
unless it's a straight to D+ movie, doing it as a movie requires a different level of costs just from distribution and marketing
so we can dispel with that talk
its Disney and Ewan McGregor, the only reason it wasn’t a movie was because Solo flopped
and because it would require to spend roughly $300mil for the other side of it
or they can just put it on their app, fill a calendar for a few weeks to keep/get new subscribers
also wouldn't have to split any revenue with theaters
Disney has plenty of money to finance a blockbuster. Dr. Strange 2 is about to cross a billion dollars. Disney Plus is killing it independent of new Star Wars content, and they could release other unproven stories there instead of something headlined by McGregor. The only reason not to is that they don’t understand their market and don’t have confidence in the IP alone post-Solo and ROS.
we are both arguing that for them it's more profitable to be on D+
my point is that they have realized there is a reason to push some things to streaming instead of theatrical
A well done movie would be more profitable than six episodes on D+
just look at what they've done to pixar movies
they clearly know stuff on the financial side, they wouldn't purposely leave hundreds of millions of dollars on the table
A movie billed as prime Vader vs prime Kenobi with an amazing trailer would absolutely destroy the box office.
it’s a poorly run franchise, I don’t know why they get the benefit of the doubt. I don’t think the Mandalorian is as profitable as you think, but what it does is maintain interest in the brand while not losing $77 million
and comparing Star Wars to Pixar releases is silly (plus wasn’t Lightyear just released in theaters only?)
lightyear is the first one in quite awhile
people have been very mad that they didnt put Luca & Turning Red in theaters (it made sense to not put Soul in theaters since it was omicron) but each of those decisions created a lot of internal tension at Pixar
also im not giving them the benefit of the doubt, im just saying if they knew they had hundreds of millions of profit, they would not turn it down
