‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ episode 6: review: trying to fix the disappointment

When one sits down to see the final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobithe irregular miniseries directed by Deborah Chow (2022) that gives us the missing piece of the puzzle about the character of Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005) and A new hope (1983), what you want is that the advanced level of the previous one is not lostwith the novel elements perhaps provided by filmmaker Andrew Stanton and his great dramatic energy.

For now, he begins by pulling on the last thread he left us and the considerable concern for the one who would truly restore balance in the Force, and who had appeared in the initial chapter: the Luke Skywalker played by the very young Grant Feely. With this, they confirm what we already assumed: his appearance, as well as the leading role of her sister, Vivien Lyra Blair’s Leia Organa, a simple gift is not intended for the followers of starwars.

Aside from the grateful courage shown by Bonnie Piesse’s Aunt Beru Lars, what she is, but by no means simple or negligible, is soon given to us: the sudden discovery that have achieved that the link between Obi-Wan Kenobi and the galactic princess move us; and we owe it in large part to the precise emotional elaboration of Ewan McGregor, contained but not scarce but full of small nuances that give it credibility and, in short, avoid the temptation of excess.

The lack of fluidity and the poor ‘crescendo’

However, the efforts of Deborah Chow and the script signed by Joby Harold, Hossein Amini and the aforementioned Andrew Stanton are overshadowed by an unavoidable circumstance: we already know that all main heroes they will survive to continue fighting in the future adventures that we know, and that weakens the intrigue. This does not prevent, however, that our curiosity about how the situation can be resolved without selling coherence remains intact.
