Obi-Wan Kenobi was announced as a limited series for Disney Plus. Yet, fans clamor for more of the Jedi Master. Obi-Wan Kenobi is perhaps the most famous and popular Star Wars Jedi ever since his introduction to audiences in 1977’s Star Wars. With Star Wars ever-growing as a franchise, there’s endless potential for Obi-Wan’s story, as long as it respects the canon events that occur in A New Hope.
With the return of Ewan McGregor as the iconic and titular Jedi Master, fans have expressed interest in seeing him reprise the role for Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2. The galaxy far, far away is constantly getting more interesting, and there are plenty of things for Kenobi to do as he watches over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine and plenty of returning faces to meet.
Clone Wars Flashbacks On Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2
One of the biggest fan demands for Obi-Wan Kenobi is the desire to see the Clone Wars in live-action. Fans were given a treat to what the Clone Wars could be like with the opening sequences of Revenge of the Sith, which truly played like a 20-minute Clone Wars episode. The Galactic-spanning war was fleshed out over 7 seasons of the animated show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The relationship between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi was greatly expanded in The Clone Wars and made their heartbreaking duel on Mustafar even more tragic for everything they had been through together. Fans would adore seeing Kenobi, or Vader, reminisce on a simpler time when all they had to worry about was how many B1-Battledroids needed cutting down with their Clone Trooper allies.
Qui-Gon Jinn Training Obi-Wan
With the conclusion of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s sixth episode, the finale, Liam Neeson reprises his role as the Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn. Qui-Gon was tragically killed in The Phantom Menace during a duel with Darth Maul. Qui-Gon managed to become one with the Force and retain his identity after his death.
The lessons that Qui-Gon learned would go on to assist him in helping both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda to master their abilities and become one with the Force when they die, thus making them more powerful than anyone can imagine. It would be great to see more of Qui-Gon and Kenobi’s relationship, and his training to unite with the Force utterly.
Ever since Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader clashed lightsabers in 1977’s Star Wars, fans have eagerly awaited every lightsaber dual to grace their eyes. Films, books, comics, video games, and TV all feature lightsaber battles, and fans adore them for their highly crafted choreography and great sound design.
Obi-Wan Kenobi only featured the Jedi Master in two lightsaber fights, and they were loved by many fans. It made sense for Kenobi’s story, who hadn’t utilized a saber in 10 years, to be rusty and not want to draw attention to himself by using one. Yet, in season 2, fans would cheer to see that blue blade ignite from his unique saber hilt.
Bounty Hunter, Boba Fett
Boba Fett and Obi-Wan have interacted before in Attack of the Clones. Boba was quite the nuisance to the Jedi Order in the Clone Wars, and stirred up all sorts of trouble with his bounty hunter mentors, like Bossk and Dengar. Boba Fett is a fan-favorite Star Wars character, so to see him show up and hunt the exiled Jedi Master would be a treat.
Boba could be played by a younger actor, like Daniel Logan, the child Boba Fett from Attack of the Clones, or by the more recent The Book of Boba Fett actor, Temuera Morrison. Boba Fett could be a great threat to Kenobi, especially in his early bounty hunter days, and obsession with disintegrations.
Commander Cody On Tatooine
An unresolved conflict emerged from the Revenge of the Sith when Commander Cody was ordered by Emperor Palpatine to execute Order 66. Cody and the 212th clone troopers attacked the Jedi Master and thought him dead. Cody’s story is unresolved. He is set to return for The Bad Batch season 2, but the extent of his story is unknown.
Having Temuera Morrison back to play the clone commander would be exciting, especially since the Empire would have discarded most, if not all clones by the time season 2 rolls out. Cody could be hunting the Jedi only he knows best.
Tusken Raiders Threat
Now that Kenobi has had his hope reinvigorated, and his strength in the Force bolstered, Kenobi could spend more time on Tatooine. Having Obi-Wan present in Luke’s early years could emphasize just how closely he watched the young boy keep him safe, as he came to his rescue in A New Hope.
Tusken Raiders can be quite the threat on Tatooine, as Anakin Skywalker would know. By having Luke run into Tusken trouble more than once, it would allow Obi-Wan to use his lightsaber against them, or perhaps learn
