This year 2022, Disney + offered its subscribers the great return of Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, through its own live-action series. Unfortunately, the show did not necessarily receive a very warm welcome, in particular because of its excessive duration. A fan has recently solved the problem by reducing the show to a film lasting 2h30.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : a half-hearted return
Created by Hossein Amini and Joby Harold, the series Obi Wan tells the adventures of the old Jedi who has taken up residence on the planet Tatooine. From there, he can keep a benevolent eye on young Luke Skywalker. But things get complicated when a group of Inquisitors arrives on the desert planet to find hidden Jedi. Located between the events of Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars IV: A New Hopethe plot fills in the gaps between George Lucas’ two trilogies.
The series was above all an opportunity to bring back comedian Ewan McGregor as the famous Jedi. Almost twenty years after his appearances in the three episodes of the prelogy, here he is again in the clothes of the Jedi, ready to defend Leia and Luke against the forces of the Empire. Unfortunately, the show did not necessarily receive very positive feedback. Many fans have pointed out some flaws around this production. Too long, too vain, not necessarily useful, there are many criticisms of this new series. To solve some show faults, a fan reassembled the product into a 2 hour film.
A cinematic version!
Kai Pattersona social media content creator, decided to move up the series Obi-Wan Kenobi in a cinematic format. So this fan of the galaxy far away has traded the 6h of the series against a shortened duration of 2h30.
He thus specifies that he got rid of moments that he found “pesky” and dialogues judged “ridiculous”as well as having changed the order of certain scenes “to have more impact”. He was also interested in the original soundtrack which he reworked himself. We leave you the link to watch its 2h30 version, hoping it has more reach than the Disney+ series.
