I know Lucas doesn’t have the greatest reputation on here, but I want him involved. This is a character he developed and has spent a lot of time with, very close to home. I understand the creative reshuffling is because they’re taking this project very seriously but I fear the committee process will potentially spoil the broth anyway by being too precious with the property. There is great potential in a Kenobi series and I’d like to see it unleashed, warts and all, if the show is overly concerned with what it can’t be I worry it will never achieve all that it can be.
Another thought: Why not take this series and roll it out more piecemeal? Like BBC’s Sherlock. Disney+ has already gone their own way from Netflix when the Mandalorian released their episodes weekly, they make their own schedule. Kenobi is huge, big enough to have been a movie, if they’re so worried about how it’s received why not play it by ear with fewer and longer episodes between breaks?
