Obi-Wan Kenobi was at all times supposed to be a miniseries, however the stars of the present have confirmed that they’d fortunately return for a second season; Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has even hinted that season 2 may occur, if the followers need it.
Whereas the sequence proved surprisingly uneven at instances, the massive confrontation between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader within the finale actually resonated with followers, as a strong decision to the connection fleshed out by the prequels.
Nevertheless, in relation to a possible second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi, there isn’t a lot story left to inform – certainly, Vader can’t meet Obi-Wan once more (though, the thought of the 2 continuously bumping into each other, partaking in non-consequential duels within the years previous A New Hope is fairly humorous).
However Reva, the Third Sister, remains to be alive, and her story was left open-ended after the finale of Kenobi – would possibly she make a very good companion, or foil, to Obi-Wan?
Reva’s story wasn’t the strongest of the sequence; her character, a former youngling who survived Anakin’s bloodbath, usually behaved inconsistently, and her remaining need to assassinate Luke Skywalker didn’t make a lot sense.
Nevertheless, Reva definitely wasn’t the one character restrained by a weak story – the vast majority of conflicts throughout the sequence couldn’t, would not be resolved till A New Hope, which dampened the drama considerably.
Viewers knew that Obi-Wan and Vader would survive their fights, that Leia would make it again dwelling, and Luke would stay secure. Nevertheless, the racist backlash to the casting of Moses Ingram made it troublesome to separate unhealthy religion criticism from authentic criticism, resulting in Reva changing into an unnecessarily divisive character throughout the fanbase.
Whereas Reva’s storyline wasn’t dealt with notably properly, the character is brimming with potential – she is likely one of the few Star Wars characters who stroll the road between the Darkish and Mild Aspect, not sure of who she actually is.
Reva spent her grownup life pretending to consider within the values of the Sith, climbing the profession ladder of the Inquisitors within the hope of getting shut sufficient to Vader to assassinate him. Her try was, clearly, a whole and utter failure – the sequence ends with Reva wounded, humiliated and directionless.
Reva can also be a Pressure-user who is aware of a fantastic deal about Darth Vader’s private life – she’s a free finish, each to the story and to the Empire. For a possible second season, Obi-Wan may go away Tatooine for an journey with Reva, on the run from the Empire, as she learns extra about herself, and which Aspect of the Pressure she really identifies with.
Reva and Vader may actually have a rematch, during which Reva is extra ready, and thus, a extra formidable foe; it will be a chance to carry again Ingram, Hayden Christensen, and Ewan McGregor, with out rehashing one other confrontation between Vader and Obi-Wan.
It’s both that, or one other journey with “Child Leia,” and I feel Star Wars canon is already dangerously near breaking level; in all probability finest to depart Luke and Leia alone.
