While Obi Wan might be one of the best Jedis that we have seen with an excellent portrayal by Ewan McGregor, I am interested and concerned for this new show. With the exception of Mandalorian, the show that people wait for on a weekly basis similar to Game Of Thrones! Disney has shown me that they do not respect theintelligencenor thetime that we fans take to watch these new properties. Parts seven through nine were lackluster to say the least. We know Obi Wan's story from beginning to end, how is a new show based on a man living on a dessert planet going to be interesting? I hope they can pull this off, Disney might be making money off this franchise but they need to start respecting their cliental, or they might have the next Transformer movie franchise on their hands.

Agreed. Sounds utterly boring if I'm being completely honest. Would have much rather they covered the flipside -- focus on Anakin's whimsical and family-friendly misadventures closely following his doh! moment on Mustafar.

I'd be interested in this but a part of me tells me that all the political posturing from the likes of people like KK and others might ruin the story. This really should have been a Darth Vader series imo -- we never got to see in proper media form, the pinnacle of Anakin's rage following his defeat on Mustafar. That being said, we'll be lucky to see some of that in this series, but I doubt it. KK has an outspoken hatred for Anakin via her petty insecurities.

Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru!!! Not sure how they'll show up, but I'm happy they are!

I always figured that at some point Obi Wan tried to teach or express interest in teaching Luke about the force or the jedi and Owen refused and forbade Obi Wan for interacting with Luke or something of the sort. I'm sure some sort of interaction will occur with Obi Wan and Owen Lars.

They got Hayden back!!!! And Owen and Beru! This is looking to be very promising!

Indira Varma, cool, I liked her in Bones and Game of Thrones. As for the series, I'm still iffy about it, but we'll see.

Wish I could say I still had some interest in this one . . . but I don't.

This should be a new golden age for Star Wars, but it just seems like all the behind the scenes political garbage is stealing all the spotlight. Amidst all the BS, I'd forgotten they were even doing an Obi-Wan series. Then this whole Gina Carano thing happens and it's just a step to far.

Star Wars just isn't fun anymore.

Congratulations to Indira though. If she keeps her mouth shut, her head low, and tows that company line, they may even let her keep the job. I sure wouldn't want it.
