What can we say about Obi-Wan Kenobi that hasn’t already been said? The guy is a legend in the purest sense, a paragon of honesty, virtue, and kindness. He is able to think big-picture and make decisions that benefit the greater good. He’s very much an essential foil for Anakin’s brash actions and unchecked stubbornness. Oh, and he can kick some serious butt, too.
But what makes The Clone Wars such an excellent way to explore Obi-Wan is its commitment to emphasizing failure as a necessary part of fighting any battle, whether it be a galaxy-spanning war or an argument between two friends. And as perfect as he seems, Obi-Wan fails. Often. And that makes every win feel earned and important. Kevin Kiner, the composer for The Clone Wars, is partially to thank for that. His musical accompaniments definitely add weight and power to Ob-Wan (and every other character, really).
Standout Obi-Wan moments during The Clone Wars include his successful navigation of The Box, his romance with Duchess Satine, and his frequent confrontations with Darth Maul. He’s easy to rally behind and the show gives us plenty of opportunities to do so.
I’d say Obi-Wan needs more screen time but that would just be greedy of me. We have enough to enjoy.
