What a perfect gift for today. May The Fourth Be With You!
The trailer starts off with some pretty great shots, Star Wars style, with Obi-Wan’s voice over.
“Or we will not survive.”
Star Wars Releases New Obi-Wan Kenobi Trailer
And then, of course, we see Obi-Wan creeping on a young Luke Skywalker. What’s cool here though is we see some new footage of Obi-Wan talking to Uncle Owen!
“When the time comes, he must be trained!” Obi-Wan exclaims. “Like you trained his father?” Uncle Owen snaps back. Ouch. Then we get a classic Obi-Wan thoughtful look.
The first hint of Darth Vader.
They show a lot in this trailer and I will refrain from spoiling anymore for you with a play by play but I will say this: I’m getting a John Wick vibe from this trailer. What makes me say this is “every bounty hunter and low life” is after Obi-Wan, so expect some high-paced chases and action scenes.
And maybe some bounty hunters and characters we haven’t seen in a long time… or only in media that hasn’t made it to the screen yet.
With that said, how come I didn’t know Kumail Nanjiani was in this series?! What a bonus!
