The Kenobi <s>Movie</s> Show
Time

IIRC, the novel mentioned he could speak the Wookiee language like a native. He certainly seems to be conversing with Chewie at the bar. I don’t see how he could run into Chewie prior to ANH and not encounter Solo though. Other Wooks are possible. Always wanted to see more of Tarrful.

Ben’s familiarity with Mos Eisely means he must have spent some time there or visited frequently. The Cantina is a perfect venue for other characters who are just passing through to appear. I’ve imagined Ben hitting an emotional low point early in his exile and perhaps drinking a little too much.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

That’s a really interesting viewpoint!

Imagine if Ep 3 ended with Anakin and Obi-Wan stopping Dooku and saving the Chancellor. Anakin then learns he will have kids, and (we falsely assume) they all live happily ever after!

That would have preserved a little mystery for people going into OT for the first time.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films

It may be a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but they’ve got excellent musical taste! 😛

I watched a few minutes of The Phantom Menace on TBS over the weekend, and noticed for the first time there are little droids picking up and putting the downed battle droids on the Naboo grassland into tidy heaps after the Gungans have lost. Prequel Lucas would never show dead Gungans being stacked of course. 😉

Similarities Between the Original Trilogy and the Prequel Trilogy

Given his backstory, he would have had to maintain that facade on Naboo for decades as he rose up the ranks in government. Lucas could have made it easier on himself had he just not gone there and left the Emperor’s appearance in ROTJ be a shocking surprise as it once was in 1983. Or just have Palpatine’s appearance begin to subtly change in ROTS after Anakin saves him, hinting at the corruption of his body in the years to come.

I do like the idea of a Sith lord feeding off the pain and suffering of others. That idea has been around a long time in horror fiction.
