Since the prequels were released, the Star Wars fan base has been divided.
So it’s no surprised the Sequel trilogy only fanned those flames. This time, prequel & original trilogy fans were bashing on Disney’s latest attempt to revive the Star Wars universe.
Complaints about Rey’s origin story, the return of Palpatine, and a lack of compelling characters were some of the main things echoed by upset fans. But lets focus on the positive now.
We are watching some of the best Star Wars we have seen in years.
The Mandalorian brought all generations of Star Wars fans together. The Force seemed to become balanced once again. After two hit seasons, Disney & Lucasfilm had to figure out what to do next.
While the Mandalorian is probably pretty tired of carrying the entire franchise on his back for the last couple of years, it’s time for new material.
That brings us to present day. Right now, fans are in awe from the Book of Boba Fett. While it started out slow, most of us realized it would take a couple of episodes to really get to the good stuff.
Cue episode 5 & 6. The greatest content of Star Wars we have witnessed since we saw Luke Skywalker in the Mandalorian Season 2. Ironically, we see Luke again in episode 6 of Boba Fett, too. We also finally get to see our little green friend, Grogu, again as well as Ahsoka Tano.
As a Star Wars fan, I am in a very content place right now. The sky is the limit. With the recent news of Obi-Wan supposed to release in May, followed by the Andor series, Star Wars fans will be feasting in 2022.
Let’s not forget about the Ahsoka Tano show supposed to come out in the near future. Oh yeah, and Mandalorian Season 3.
We’ll have to show some patience once The Book of Boba Fett wraps up in the next few weeks, but hopefully right around that time, Disney will release the trailer for Obi-Wan.
The return of Hayden Christensen to the franchise is enough for me to predict this show will be incredible. Ewan McGregor is the perfect Obi-Wan Kenobi, so yes, you can say my expectations are extremely high. I think with the use of “The Volume,” these stars will truly have all the essential materials to make something special.
I’m hoping we see Obi-Wan travel to different planets, return to Mustafar (where we could see Vader’s Castle), and have force dreams where we see Clone Wars era Anakin & Obi in action.
This rematch with Darth Vader needs to be epic. And my prediction is it will happen on Mustafar. Now with Ahsoka Tano finally being transferred over into live action (Rosario Dawson), I think there’s possibility we see her involved in the show.
Not to mention there’s always the possibility of the return of Darth Maul & Crimson Dawn. We saw Maul’s fate in Rebels, but this was a loss to a much older Obi-Wan.
