The new set of Star Wars series has raised a question which can be answered only by Ewan McGregor. The new question buzzing around is will the McGregor Disney+ show be a connecting thread to past, future, and present? Can the return of Jedi knight be significant to larger Star Wars mythos?
Obi-Wan Kenobi is returning, as confirmed on Friday at D23. The news has left all the fans delighted and rejoiced. Not only this Star wars officials have also revealed the timeline at D23 itself. The Disney+ series will take place in the past, present and as well as the future.
The show will take place after Revenge of Sith (2005), during the time of Solo (2018) and exactly before A New Hope (1997), which has future ramifications of the evergreen and ever-growing franchise.
The Rise of Skywalker sizzle reel released at D23 emphasized the importance of the connection between three trilogies. This was done by showing the footage of George Lucas’ original trilogy and his prequel films.
The Obi-Wan series has the potential to knit the three eras of the franchise together. Although, Rise of Skywalker will be hitting before in December 2020.
Ewan McGregor took the role of Obi-Wan when Lucas returned to franchise with the prequels. This is when the fans got to know the man behind the hood. The young hero wanted to find the ‘Chosen One’ to bring back the balance in the force. Whereas in reality, his journey had been quite tough as he loses his mentor, Qui-Gon Jinn and the boy who he was trying to save goes to the Dark side.
Not only the above question, but Obi-Wan also has the potential to answer questions like, ‘How did Maz end up with Luke’s lightsaber?’ and ‘Was Palpatine active between the trilogies?’
There is no set date for the release of the Obi-Wan series as of now. But the crowd at D23 was told by McGregor that it feels good to be talking about.
