Obi-Wan Kenobi Part VI

Well folks, here we are. Kenobi Part VI, the final episode of the series. I’m sad that it’s over but we were told from the very beginning it would be a “limited series”. They delivered exactly what was promised, both in quantity and quality. There is so much happening in this episode. So many emotions. I will probably provide some final thoughts in a follow-up post. In the meantime, let’s get into it.

spoiler alert!!!

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part V

Kenobi Part V is the penultimate episode of the season/series! The “Empire Strikes Back” episode (see last weeks post if you’re confused by that) and it’s so good! By this point we have seen everything that is in the trailers. Which means everything from this episode on is completely unseen content! Knowing what we know from last week, confrontation is inevitable as the Imperials close in on his location.

Star Wars Canon vs Legends

From USA Today – October 30, 2012

The fandoms first real controversy began with the prequels (if you exclude the “Han Shot First” deal). However, this isn’t about my opinion of the prequels (I love them, btw). This is about what happened 10 years ago, when George Lucas decided he was finished making Star Wars movies and sold the rights of the franchise over to Disney. One of Disney’s first acts was the “decanonization” of anything written after Return of the Jedi (also known as the Extended Universe, or EU for short). Thus begins the Star Wars Canon vs Legends discussion.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part IV

Kenobi Part IV

This episode is a little slower than the last but still a great episode. There are two more left and I believe this one is setting up the final confrontation. The end of Part III is just a taste of the promised “re-match”, of this I am certain. There are more details, and theories, I want to get into for Kenobi Part IV but, as usual, I have to issue the spoiler warning first.

This one isn’t quite as riddled with easter eggs as the previous episode, but there is something familiar if you’ve seen The Clone Wars. Let’s pause here for the spoiler warning before I say too much.

Star Wars Month 2022 Recap

Star Wars Month Recap

Instead of doing a “Monthly Movie Theme” post I’m going to do a Star Wars Month recap (since watching the movies is part of the celebration). All good things must come to an end and I’m always sad to see May end. Granted I can (and often do) watch the Star Wars movies and series anytime during the year, but I always make it a priority for May. My goals for May were not too lofty, as I mentioned at the beginning of the month.

On the other hand, I’m excited it’s June so we can see the rest of Obi-Wan Kenobi and all it’s awesome content.

The Obligatory Re-Watch

I successfully watched all 11 movies again, with time to spare. That is a lot of movies to watch in just a few weeks, and only on the week days. Every time, after watching the Han Solo movie, I always think how great that movie is and that I don’t watch it enough. It’s such a shame that it’s release was poorly managed.

Sorry Kathleen, I disagree that it’s poor performance is due to bad casting. If someone told you that, then they are probably the ones responsible and trying to protect their job. Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover are amazing in their roles as Han and Lando (respectively). They should be at the top of the list for reprising their roles should they appear in a series (such as the Lando series).

If you STILL haven’t watched Solo: A Star Wars Story, then you’re missing out. You really need to go watch it; it’s so good!

I also nearly finished watching Star Wars Resistance and I probably would have succeeded if I hadn’t seen a tweet from Disney+ UK. They suggested watching a specific set of episodes from The Clone Wars in preparation for the Kenobi series. I spent the remainder of the month trying to re-watch those episodes.

Special Event Movie(s)

There is one exception made during this month. May 25th is not only the anniversary of the release of A New Hope, it’s also Towel Day. The combination of these two days is why the 25th is also called Geek Pride Day. So the special event movie for May 25th is the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy starring Martin Freeman.

Douglas Adam’s “trilogy in 5 books” has been one of my favorite series to read. In fact I am going to add the books to my read again list. I really enjoy the big screen interpretation of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, especially the casting. Mos Def as Ford Prefect is great and the legendary Alan Rickman (RIP) as the voice of Marvin is brilliant and sublime.

Watching this movie during Star Wars month isn’t a complete tangent from the franchise. Warwick Davis (aka Wicket the Ewok) is the man in the Marvin suit.

I hope all of you that may have celebrated with me this month also had a fun and successful Star Wars month. Until next year …

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part III

Kenobi Part III

Kenobi Part III is my favorite episode (so far). This one is dark but powerful. I can’t go into too much detail until after the spoiler warning; but I love how this series is really enhancing the canon of the original trilogy and building his relationships.

Obi-Wan is still evading the inquisitors while trying to complete his mission. He’s hoping to find allies as he makes his way home again but then …
