“Obi-Wan Kenobi was an incredible show. What an emotionally resonant finale, and what a time to be a Star Wars fan!” says Annlyel 

Today is a special day because we just witnessed the epic and emotional finale of Obi-Wan KenobiTo say this episode blew my mind would be an understatement. From start to finish, the episode prepares you for the kind of emotional send-off that’s rare to see in this franchise. I found myself crying quite often as the finale overwhelmed me with revelations and powerful moments. I’m honestly quite stunned at the moment but I must commend the performance of these actors; returning and new.

CHARACTER PRAISE

Moses Ingram is now an iconic character in this expanding franchise. Her story was powerful, compelling, and ended in a way that felt earned and perfect. She is undoubtedly one of my favorite characters in all of Star Wars now and I thank the writers for including her. Indira Varma as the Imperial-turned-rebel was indeed a highlight of the series. She reminded me of the Rogue One characters to who I became so attached in a matter of a couple of hours. If she ever has a Funko Pop I’m definitely getting it. Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse provided even more depth to Owen and Beru Lars. I loved seeing them in this show.

LEGACY LOVE

Vivien Blair is a freaking star! She was perfect as Princess Leia. Almost uncannily perfect. I loved every moment of her inclusion in this show and how it has only made her story in the Original Trilogy that much better. Hayden Christensen is back, baby! His performance as Darth Vader was everything and a little more. To see him play this iconic character so well was truly a rewarding experience.

And finally, Ewan McGregor has provided an unforgettable performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi in this series. His every detail into transforming from Ben Kenobi to Obi-Wan Kenobi and then back to a new-and-improved Ben Kenobi was everything I could’ve asked for and more.

I’d also like to give an honorable mention to Oshea Jackson Jr’s Roken who became another fine addition of rad rebels, Kumail Nanjiani’s hilarious Haja, and Rupert Friend’s enjoyably evil take on the Grand Inquisitor. And whoever the heck played the loader Droid, Ned-B.

What an incredible show, what an emotionally resonant finale, and what a time to be a Star Wars fan!
