We can’t help but think about what an Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action series would look like. There’s one Star Wars legacy character I’d like to see come back.
With the announcement that an Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action Star Wars series is probably going to happen — we’re all waiting for the official announcement until we believe it — it still has me wondering what it could possibly be about.
When does it take place? What will we see? Who will we see? Those are just some of the questions that pop up.

While I hope for a story that doesn’t just have Obi-Wan wandering the desert of Tatooine, I would love to see Darth Vader appear again.
Obi-Wan’s story is tied intimately with Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Obi-Wan was his master and was the one who cut his limbs off that required Anakin to live in the Vader suit. Their friendship had a strong connection that they looked at each other as brothers.
While we have seen a lot of Obi-Wan’s story through the prequel trilogy, The Clone Wars, and his ending in A New Hope, the aftermath of the Vader reveal hasn’t been explored (in the new canon).
Do Obi-Wan and Vader ever meet again before their fateful duel? Or do they just go on bitterly with their lives knowing some of the biggest secrets of the galaxy?
If Lucasfilm does go down that path, it could bring a lot of legacy characters into fold. You couldn’t have Vader’s story without Palpatine in the background pulling strings. There would even be a chance to see a baby or child Luke Skywalker.
Yet, I would love for this potential Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series to explore the aftermath of Obi-Wan and Anakin’s betrayals. Both have their reasons for hating the other, but it seems Obi-Wan is more broken hearted over Anakin’s downfall while Anakin blames Obi-Wan for many of the tragedies in his life.
Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker is such an interesting character. As Darth Vader, we have only gotten to explore his humanity in books and comics. And while he is a cold-blooded killer, we know that he wasn’t that way from the start.
He struggled with the duality of his personality. I’d like to explore that more and maybe the Kenobi series is the right vehicle.
