The entertainment team behind Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to get their own Jedi mind trick on us all. For months, if not years, the assumption has been that Disney+''s Obi-Wan Kenobi show would focus on Little Luke Skywalker (Grant Feely). After all, Lukes was the focus of the trailers, the lore, and the single preview clip released ahead of the premiere.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a story about how handsome old Ben Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) finds himself withdrawn from his self-imposed retirement to protect young Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) from kidnappings. Obi-Wan is condemned to action by Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits), who tells the Jedi about a hologram message that he is Leias only hope. (Moreover, Bail reminds Obi-W

This flip comparison of Obi-Wan and Leia instead of Luke is really inspiring. Not only does it help establish Princess Leia as an important part of the Jedi''s plans to flee the shadows, but it also gives the context for why Leia would, in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in the first place. Once more, the Mandalorians have been roused to take action to save a Force-sensitive child.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The Jedi have been slaughtered and the Republic has been usurped by the evil Galactic Empire. The few Jedi and Force users who escaped Order 66 live on the run and a group of Dark Force users named Reva (Moses Ingram) is after him. If Obi-Wan Kenobi is known as Tatooine, her superiors are less than certain.

Reva hires a bounty hunter led by Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to kidnap Bail Organa''s beloved daughter. She does not know that Leia is the Force-sensitive child of Darth Vader. She reveals that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa were weak during the Clone Wars. He does so only after Bail Organa convicted him.

Yes, Obi-Wan and Leia are equally important as her tow-headed farm boy brother!

Obi-Wan visits Daiyu and rescues Princess Leia for an immediate pleasure. He tells anyone who asks him that she is his daughter. She compliments Obi-Wan by saying she reminds him of an old friend* who was fearless, too. And yet, she fails!

Desperately, I liked the fact that young Princess Leia is depicted as a weak tom-boy who can rip a grown man to shreds with one withering psychological diagnosis. Uh, did you see how adult Leia (Mark Hamill) ordered Luke (Harrison Ford) around her Death Star in A New Hope? Sure, after a blaster, her choices weapons were cruel asides, haughty statements, and total confidence. She saves her polish for moments of

Obi-Wan, however, melts for the little one, as evidenced in the way she first tells her she cant get gloves from a clothing store and then just smooth adds them to the order. Is this the path of least resistance? Yes. Yes, Obi-Wan is also doing on Leia.

Obi-Wan and Leias'' cute connection is an obvious source of the Mandalorians Din Djarin and Grogu. It is a classic Lone Wolf and Cub set up. This is, the fact, that a hardened warrior finds purpose on the run with a young charge. It''s such a perfect set for Star Wars non only because the universe is rooted in samurai film motifs, but because it gives everyone who has access to it.

When I first saw The Book of Boba Fett, I realized that a Baby Yoda figure was not included in the Disney+ Star Wars set. This is, because he is determined to recognize the future in his own right. It is not hurt that baby actress Vivien Lyra Blair is so cute in her own right.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has just two episodes, but the script has changed on characters we assumed we knew for decades. No longer are Old Ben and Princess Leia star-crossed strangers, but Leia is the impetus to rouse Obi-Wan back into action. She is going to push him straight into Darth Vaders path and potentially inspire him to perform further heroics. This is important because the choice to focus on a young Leia underscores her greater commitment to the Sky

The Star Wars main films aren''t just about the Skywalker brothers, but also about the family''s fiery princess.

According to preliminary statistics, Obi-Wan was referring to none other than Leias mother, Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman), although there is an outside possibility hes referring to the first fearless and stubborn leader he had to go on the lam with, Duchess Satine of Mandalore. However, it''s likely Padme.
