The Kenobi <s>Movie</s> Show (Spoilers)
Time

Heck, any fan with reasonable money can fake an anamorphic look (proper anamorphic, not just cropping to 2:39:1) and using 35mm film stock these days. There are anamorphic lenses and filters on the market, along with real 35mm grain plates in all the desired resolutions.

I’m more a fan of 16mm faking myself. If Kenobi had gone for a more fake-16mm look (including a 1:78:1 or 1:66:1 AR), it might’ve sold me a bit more on the cinematography and the rougher feeling.

I wonder if it might be the worst thing that ever happened in Star Wars canon.

The Chuck Wendig books exist.

So in movie/tv media then.

Nope, that’s still AOTC, the Ewok movies, BOBF, or TROS, depending on how a person is feeling that day.

Don’t forget the Holiday Special.

I find it charmingly bad, in a way that only something produced in the late-'70s could be. Plus, it has a funny Rifftrax (Mike > Joel).

Ewok movies aren’t canon.

AOTC is way better the Ben show…

And at least TROS was dumb but funny because so dumb. BOBF is just inconsequential. I don’t mind as it doesn’t fuck up important characters of the Saga.

But I think you’re intensely overselling how much Kenobi “fucked up” characters (I rather like all the steps it took with the characters, albeit some executions could’ve been better than others), but that’s just me.

Also, AOTC is much worse than “the Ben show” because at least the Ben show didn’t make its female lead look like an enabler (which AOTC made Padme out to be). It also didn’t ruin a character’s redemption by making them look like an unhinged jerk. But once again, it’s just my opinion.

And hadn’t it already been established that Qui-Gon couldn’t appear “in the flesh” because he hadn’t completed his training before he died? I’m sure this was explained in one of the cartoons.

The 2017 book From a Certain Point of View showed that Qui-Gon had learned to appear in the flesh by ANH (but it took a lot of effort to do so). All the show changes is that Jinn knew how to appear in the flesh a decade before it happened in the book.

So they have altered canon yet again just for a few seconds fanwank? Jeez

Not really? Nothing in the book says that Jinn couldn’t have done it a decade earlier (it doesn’t imply that his 0 BBY appearance is as the first time). Besides, there’s nothing that says that a force spirit can’t learn to physically manifest if they couldn’t before.

The book messed it up first, if one takes a negative view of the physical Jinn ghost.

The <strong>Original Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread

I find that Crow-style flashbacks completely break with how Star Wars stories are told through all eras, especially in the OT. If it’s a vision Luke has in the deleted scene cave, it’d be a bit better. Having a vision scene in the opening of ROTJ would also be a better place for Luke to learn Anakin’s name (instead of Obi-Wan just dropping it with no fanfare).

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>1080p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

It’s okay in my book. I didn’t hate it, but I just couldn’t mentally justify rating it higher than a 6/10. I get why people despise it, and I get why people like it. I’m glad you’re not using elements from it, especially since it’d just cheapen the look of the OT to include insertions/references.

Speaking of that, what’s the plan for Kenobi’s hut now - a new model/matte, the '77 hut, or the '97 hut/digital matte?

The Prequel Trilogy Revised - concept trailers released (WIP)
Time

I’d like to imagine her just getting stranded on Malachor and living off of the land until a mining ship happened to land there during the events of ROTJ (as in, within days of the DSII blowing up). It doesn’t seem like that place is frequently visited by spacefarers and there probably aren’t hyperspace-capable ships near her.

Everyone wants to see Luke being a badass in the sequel trilogy,

Legends Luke was too OP and flies in the nature of the movie character, IMO. TLJ was a much more plausible Luke, but that’s a discussion for another day. Being a badass doesn’t always mean it’ll be a good and complex character.

everyone wanted to see Vader in action in the prequels (not 5 min),

Maybe? IDK as much about the fan community then, but was there much of a call to have Vader appear in Ep II or early Ep III?

everyone wanted to see Anakin and Obi-Wan being really good friends in the prequels, etc. (And they get none of this)

Clone Wars gave fans that to a significant extent.

If they decide to continue the show to another “season” with Deborah Chow and the same/random writers…then we don’t want this show, haha. We, apparently, are always going to come up with better story ideas because we are not Disney shills with agendas and misunderstanding of the rules of the SW galaxy. This show and TBOBF have proven that they often have very little clue about how to construct SW stories properly or with care. Everyone here has suggested terrific stories for another season that fit better with the universe and the Kenobi character…don’t count on this company doing anything remotely close to that quality.

To campaign for a second season, to them, would be rewarding their mediocre attempts and encouraging more.

You don’t speak for me.

If there was to be a season two, skip a few years to get a graying Kenobi (with a wig that looks like Sir Alec’s wig) going up against some Hutt BS or a force-sensitive bounty hunter that endangers Luke/the citizens of the Dune Sea. Maybe this is the incident that makes Owen go “no contact” with Kenobi (if Joel Edgerton’s salary demands are met/he’s not too busy).

Maybe find a live-action Satine for flashbacks? Her absence is understandable in this story, but it would be nice to have her acknowledged.

Maybe you could have Kenobi have premonitions of his encounter with Maul as well.

The issue there is that Ray Park had a falling out with Lucasfilm. However, any stuntman that looks close enough would work as long as Sam Witwer is still providing the voice.
