Obi-Wan Kenobi: Episode 6, Obi-Wan Returns Strong [REVIEW]

Final episode for the Star Wars spinoff miniseries about the jedi the galaxy far, far away aka Obi-Wan Kenobi. And it's time to make a somewhat mixed assessment. Warning, spoilers…

If you missed the start: The plotter has revealed the hideout of our heroes. Darth Vader's trap has closed. We discovered Reva's past. Little battle between the Rebel Resistance and The Empire. Darth Vader returns for a little lap. Death of Reva and return of the Grand Inquisitor (as if by magic!). Return to Tatooine to prevent the Empire from finding Luke Skywalker. The final battle is coming. Warning spoilers…

Episode 6 (final). This is the end. After six episodes, the miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi is already coming to an end. Like this, in a snap of your fingers, as fast as a lightsaber goes out when switched off. In this final episode, the phantom menace hangs over the very young Luke Skywalker. Obi-Wan leaves behind the princess Leia to protect her. And Darth Vader is still pissed off, relentlessly chasing his former Jedi master. Suffice to say that it smells of fir. Obi-Wan feels that his last hour is coming, no longer wants to avoid the confrontation with his former padawan who has become a Sith lord. Reva (who is not actually dead!) wants to kill Luke who is protected by his uncle and aunt. It feels like deja vu, deja vu.

Big nostalgia, little disappointment

Obi-Wan, the character, will have taken six episodes to regain his mojo. The fallen Jedi master will have taken six episodes to come back in force. It's both very short and very long. This ambivalent duality represents the strength and weakness of the mini-series dedicated to Obi-Wan. For six episodes, the hearts of fanboysand fangirls (including yours truly who writes these modest lines) swung between large dose of nostalgia and strong>small stings of disappointment. Yes, Obi-Wan Kenobi clearly revived childhood memories like a Proust madeleine. Yeah, it was cool seeing Ewan McGregor in Obi-Wan Kenobi's robe and Hayden Christensen back in Darth Vader's costume. But the rest? Non-existent secondary characters, a design production below the ambitions of such a series, stakes that fit on a metro ticket… Sometimes Obi-Wan Kenobilooked more like a YouTube fan-movie than a Disney production. Sad, but somewhat true unfortunately. The mini-series format was perhaps not the most adequate to do justice to the character of Obi-Wan and, de facto, to that of Vader. Even less, by overloading the narrative with downright boring subplots and dispensable cameos (hello Qui-Gon Jinn). One thing is certain, however: Obi-Wan Kenobi will have made you want to review, and even reevaluate, the prelogyStar Wars. And especially the unloved Episode II, Attack of the Clones. That's not bad.
