Mmm hmmm. . .

I'd say I'm cautiously optimistic about this.

I wonder how Hayden feels about this. Excited? Nervous? Is it weird for him?

And I wonder how most fans are feeling as well.

hmmm interesting

Really happy about this. But i have a question.

In A New Hope, Vader says to old Kenobi, last time i saw you, i was but a learner, now i'm a master.

There's something amiss here regarding him appearing across Obi-Wan again, unless i'm missing something.

Can someone please explain ?

reply

They won't necessarily meet face-to-face.

Maybe he will be used in flashback scenes... I mean Obi could still have some serious nightmares about how he destroyed Anakin...

reply

Exactly.

Non canonizes the series (in terms of the OT) before its even began.

However, they are going with Euan McGregor's prequel Obi-Wan and the prequels aren't consistent with the OT anyway. Therefore they should just officially split the two and let this show go forward with whatever happening, e.g. Vader vs Obi Wan multiple lightsaber duals, introducing other Jedi / powerful force users, etc.

How are we going to see his face or hear his voice other than possibly his mask being destroyed in battle?
