Agreed, it would be fun to see a movie edit of the series. I’d love an extra movie to watch to bridge the trilogies.
I won’t write a full review, because I’m tired. But I will say that the finale was awesome, and made me emotional.
The end of that duel. OMG. Vader was the pitiable and broken horror villain Lucas always wanted him to be viewed as.
Obi-Wan goes through so much character development and finally transforms into the wise and hopeful Alec Guinness version.
I’ll admit, watching Obi-Wan’s eyes get teary when he saw Anakin’s broken face got to me. At its best, that scene included, Obi-Wan Kenobi has recontextualised the PT for me to a point where I’m cool with it. I don’t consider them very good films, but just months ago, I was basically in the “deny they exist” camp.
I’m not 100% into Leia and Obi-Wan having this close a relationship when her hologram in Star Wars makes no reference to that, but I can live with it. It’s no worse than the passionate kiss between siblings where one party has “always known”, Yoda supposedly training Obi-Wan, or Leia remembering her real mother. Some backpedaling is to be expected with Star Wars, and it’s been that way since 1999, really.
I would also have wished the cinematography would’ve been brighter. Dark scenes are fine, but this was the climax! But I’m noting this is a trend with shows that are shot and processed for HDR in general. Hopefully it’ll pass eventually.
