This text comprises main spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi Half VI, now streaming on Disney+.

In Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, the titular Jedi Grasp leads a solitary life away from any of the opposite surviving Jedi. Based on star Ewan McGregor, there’s a motive behind Kenobi’s solitude.

“All he’s got left is to look after Luke Skywalker. That’s all he’s got left, really, and to try to communicate with his old master, Qui-Gon [Jinn], in his spiritual life,” McGregor mentioned in an interview with The Jess Cagle Present. “But he can’t reach out to any of his old [mentors]. He can’t reach out to Yoda, he can’t reach out to any of the surviving Jedi for fear of giving himself away.”

After Order 66 made the Republic Clone Trooper armies activate the Jedi and bloodbath them throughout the 2005 film Revenge of the Sith, solely a handful of Jedi remained all through the galaxy. Of those, Obi-Wan and Grand Grasp Yoda have been probably the most excessive profile and identified to Star Wars followers. Each Jedi agreed to enter hiding and Kenobi took on the duty of watching over Luke Skywalker on the desert planet Tatooine. When Obi-Wan Kenobi begins, roughly ten years after Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan remains to be on Tatooine however Yoda’s location is unknown. It is solely in The Empire Strikes Again that Yoda is discovered hiding within the swamps of Dagobah.

It was the primary time that Liam Neeson has been seen on-screen as Jinn since The Phantom Menace, though he did voice the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and is because of return to voice Qui-Gon once more in Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi.

With Episode 6 now broadcast, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s future is unknown. A latest report instructed that Lucasfilm and Disney are growing a second season of the present, however nothing has been formally introduced but.
