I was having trouble articulating why I was never excited for this show, but after seeing the trailer, I think I know why. I think what made the most sense for Obi-Wan’s character was for him to remain hidden on Tatooine and not really do all that much exciting. Grappling with things internally, of course, but not going out and trying to save the galaxy. But in order to make a successful TV show that mass audiences will enjoy, there has to be exciting action scenes and big adventures. I think they should have avoided making a show about him altogether and focused on someone for whom action-packed adventures actually make sense. A Darth Vader show might have had more room for that and could have been interwoven with flashback sequences featuring Ewan MacGregor as Obi-Wan if they wanted to bring him back.
