It's finally here! The trailer for Disney Plus newest Star Wars series Obi Wan Kenobi is here and the wait was well worth it. We haven't seen Kenobi since 2005 in the Revenge Of the Sith. After Kenobi defeated Darth Vader on Mustafar we were left wanting more and after 17 years of waiting, the wait is over.
The trailer hits you with a voice over of Obi Wan saying that the war is over and that they, the Jedi, lost. If that doesn't give you goosebumps, the track that it definitely did. Lucasfilm and Disney jabbed you in the face with 'Duel of the Fates' which is just an amazing piece of music by John Williams. What else!? They merged it with 'Battle of the Heroes' from Revenge Of the Sith giving me and maybe others that it's teasing the Obi Wan Kenobi verses Darth Vader rematch that most Star Wars fans have clamored for which will be epic!
Obi Wan is seen watching over Luke Skywalker, but it seems like some shady shit is happening on Tatooine involving jedi hunting Inquisitors, those who deal with the dark side doing the Empires bidding which is mostly hunting the remaining Jedi. All those Jedi hunters in the show Rebels seem to be here which is awesome. Some big questions pop in my head as I write this, such as, does Darth Maul appear in some way? It's before he finds Kenobi, but a Inquisitor did call Maul "The shadow", which leads me to believe they were hunting him as well. Which could give us a Maul vs Vader, since it seemed like he met with him before and it didn't pan out the way Maul wanted it too.
We also see Owen Lars, Luke's uncle in this trailer, looking distraught most likely knowing the Inquisitors are looking for Jedi and knows not only is Kenobi lurking around, but his nephew/son has that same sort of ability, which means Lars would do whatever it took to protect Luke.
I think this trailer is based on whatever we'll get in the first three episodes, everything else will be a secret and surprise once the season gets started. I'm extremely pumped for this!
I actually wonder if the main Inquisitor is gonna fail and Vader is gonna lose his shit which is why he does what he does in Rebels. I'm also curious on whether or not Obi Wan comes into contact with any of the Inquisitors from Rebels and maybe he takes on some of the unknown members in this series. It also looks like he goes off world, which would be surprising. Plus we get references from the game Jedi: Fallen Order! But I don't know that because I haven't finished the damn game! Don't judge my video game procrastination!
So who else is ready for this series!?
