Could Obi-Wan Kenobi return? From Lucasfilm they talked about the possibility of the show having a second season. This is what is known.
Obi-Wan Kenobi He is one of the most important characters in the Star Wars universe. Because of the power and greatness of him, Lucasfilm decided to give the hero his own series. In less than a dozen episodes, Disney+ managed to give fans of the galactic saga part of what happened to him between Episodes III and IV, which filled many with nostalgia.
However, there are those who the show left them wanting to see even more. This, however, may not be possible. Both the director of the title and the president of Lucasfilm They have referred to the option of extending the plot. The answers left the fans in a situation similar to the one they lived before the spectacular statements.
While speaking on Deadline’s Crew Call podcast, Obi-Wan Kenobi director Deborah Chow touched on the likelihood that the show starring Ewan McGregor have a season 2.
Chow admitted that the first set of episodes was “always envisioned as a limited (series).” And while this put fans off, he immediately added: “but never say Never“.
“This was always envisioned as a limited (series), and I’m sure you can see from the story that it’s closed. Obviously, it seemed like we were telling a great story. Who knows, there are ten more years before A new hope start, so never say never. But for this particular (project), it was really conceived to be a limited (series),” he went on to say.
Already with the words of the creative, the last word on the possible continuation came directly from the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy. The executive shared that a second season is “not in active development,” but that there is still a chance something could happen “in the future.” The fans cling to that maybe.
What would happen in the second season of Obi-Wan?
Although there is no certainty that there will be a second season or not, there are possible plots that this could develop. Surely, two characters that will have a lot to do with Obi-Wan’s path until he reaches Episode IV (A New Hope) are Reva Sevander y Qui-Gon Jinn.
The first, contrary to the apparent end it had at the beginning, could still be active in Star Wars. In addition, for what he lived, the character of Moses Ingram she could end up being a padawan of the protagonist master. And speaking of apprentices, Kenobi has yet to finish his training with the Jedi played by Liam Neeson.
This meeting has been waiting since Episode III, when with Yoda They comment on how necessary it is for this to happen. However, the Irish actor has distanced himself from returning to the franchise, so he would be complex.
On the other hand, it is very likely that Luke Skywalker y Darth Vader take more part in the life of Obi-Wan, who little by little would become “Ben”.
