One of the most highly anticipated shows to come out on Disney+ is the Kenobi series. It will follow Obi-Wan Kenobi’s life after the fall of the Jedi order and his life in exile on Tatooine. The show had started filming a few months ago, and fans can expect to see it sometime in 2022. The show will bring back Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and will also bring Hayden Christensen back to Star Wars to return as Darth Vader.
The concept art that was released confirms that Kenobi will stand off against Vader in an epic duel. Their last encounter on the lava planet Mustafar had deformed Anakin and turned him into more machine than man. Their stand-off will certainly be the ones fans have been dying to see. Kenobi will still be young enough to have the agility he did on Mustafar, and Vader will now be his iconic self in his black suit, so this will be a new take on the duel seen in A New Hope.
The duel with Vader isn’t the only thing released. There is concept art of Kenobi riding an Eopie through the harsh desert. His clothes are similar to what we saw Boba wearing in The Mandalorian. The layers are necessary to survive the rough climate, and it helps Kenobi blend in with the farmers and other civilians. This piece of concept art confirms his new look and that we can expect to see him on the move.
The third piece released shows a massive hall filled with stormtroopers. We can expect to see more of the Empire in Kenobi, and that is some exciting news. This will be close to where The Bad Batch took us, with the Empire rising to take absolute control over the galaxy. The massive hall and amount of stormtroopers in this piece gives such a classic feel and reminds me of the Death Star scenes in A New Hope.
The last piece of concept art released looks like an Inquisitor is paying Kenobi a visit on Tatooine. The climate around him looks very similar to the desert climate of the planet, and if you zoom in on the Inquisitor, you can see that he is holding a lightsaber hilt, ready to call out and challenge Kenobi to a duel. He and his stormtroopers most likely stopped in at the closest town to Kenobi’s home.
The ship looks incredible and has a very dark feel to it. The design looks mean and ready to attack, just like the Inquisitors. It looks similar to TIE Reaper.
What do you think about these leaks? Which one is your favorite? The rematch between Kenobi and Vader will definitely be a legendary encounter. Comment your thoughts below or on the Facebook page!
