Hello everyone, this is Matthew Hemenway. In this video, I will be reviewing and analyzing Obi Wan Kenobi Episodes 4 to 6 that is currently on Disney+ done by LucasFilm. I will go over several topics in this video and point out if it is true to the Star Wars lore created. I will let you know my rating at the end of this video. Now on with the review.
When the viewer gets to Episode 4 which is called Part IV, Obi Wan Kenobi was in a Bactria tank after being rescued by Tala and he is not in the best of shape. He needs more time, but as he points out to Tala, Leia is only 10 years old and does not deserve to have this happen to her. Obi Wan Kenobi meets Roken who is the leader of the group that is resisting the Empire. Obi Wan Kenobi with Tala agree that they need to rescue Leia as she knows things about this group, and they cannot afford to get out. Obi Wan Kenobi tells them he will go alone to rescue Leia if necessary. Tala agrees to go with Obi Wan Kenobi because she still has clearance as an Imperial officer. It will allow Obia Wan to get into the facility undetected while Tala distracts the Imperial soldiers and officers there as well as the Inquisitors.
Obi Wan Kenobi must swim underwater to get to the facility to rescue Leia. This is not the first time that he swam underwater, he did back in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. He must use his wits and his skills as a Jedi to get into the facility. He will go through the facility until he finds Leia. The one called third sister known as Reva is torturing Leia to see if she will give them up. As was shown in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Leia would not give them up. Yes, even though she is 10 years old, she could not do it. She had that courage at such an early age, and she still possessed at 19 when she was on the Death Star. Reva was going to kill her if she did not get what she wanted.
Obi Wan Kenobi gets to Leia and rescues her from this facility with the help of Tala. Tala and they get on the speeder to get back to the escape ship. One of the speeders got shot down and the other person dies. Leia’s droid has a tracker in it. This will set up Part V as they are heading to the planet they are escaping to.
Once Part V begins, Obi Wan Kenobi with Tala and Roken get back to the planet known as Jabeen they were on. They must be prepared as Darth Vader along with Reva and the Imperial Navy are coming after them. They must be prepared for a battle and an escape. Obi Wan Kenobi realizes they must outlast enough to get out.
Reva tells Darth Vader; they can last for days in there and not be easy to break. Darth Vader tells her; it is not them I do not want to break. Who Darth Vader is looking to break is Obi Wan Kenobi. He wants to break his spirit.
Leia must fix the thing that is broken to allow for the hanger doors to open. Leia’s droid that had the tracker in it, dismantled the hanger doors. Leia finds the problem and she discovers her droid has been taken over. She removes the tracker and Lola is back to her old self. This is good news to say the least.
Obi Wan Kenobi tells the people that he must turn himself in to give them the time they need to escape. Obi Wan Kenobi turns himself into Reva and the imperial stormtroopers. He is a prisoner. As Obi Wan Kenobi tells Reva, you are not bringing me to him, I am bringing him to you. As Obi Wan Kenobi found out before he was captured, he told her you knew who Anakin was. She was one of the younglings that the viewer saw during the events of Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith when Anakin was killing, they younglings. She wondered where Obi Wan Kenobi was when Anakin was doing this. Obi Wan Kenobi was dealing with General Grevious at the time.
Obi Wan Kenobi gets them out except for Tala. Tala sacrifices herself to get the people out. Darth Vader shows how strong he is in the force. He can keep the ship from leaving. Other ships come out of it, and they escape. Reva tries to kill Darth Vader, but she fails. As Darth Vader tells Reva, you did not think I did not recognize you youngling. The Grand Inquisitor who the viewer thought died in Part II is not dead. He told her that revenge is a powerful motivator to stay alive. This will set up Part VI as Reva finds the message that Bail Organa transmitted to Obi Wan Kenobi about there being two children. ￼
The ship that Obi Wan Kenobi, Roken, and Princess Leia is on is being followed by the Empire. They are getting shot at by the imperial star destroyer. This will lead to a space chase that is quite common in Star Wars. Just look at it from this perspective; in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the first scene of that movie is having the ship getting chased by an Imperial Star Destroyer. A chase from Imperial Star Destroyer also happened in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. That would have been when a Star Destroyer was chasing the Millenium Falcon.
The viewer gets taken back to Tatooine where Reva is looking for Luke. She asks where Owen is. As was shown at the end of Part V, Reva finds out about the children. She wants to get to Luke and kill him as she feels that will make Anakin Skywalker pay. As the viewer knows from this moment in time, Anakin Skywalker does not know about them. Darth Vader does not know about there being any children. He believed they died when Padme died.
Obi Wan Kenobi concludes that he must face Darth Vader alone. He tells Roken that there is no other option. Roken tells him, we need more time than we have. Roken knows that they need more time to use the hyperspace to get out of there. Roken tells Obi Wan Kenobi, you do not need to do this. Leia said, I will not let you. You promised you would take me back. Everyone on the ship does not want Obi Wan Kenobi to leave them. Obi Wan Kenobi tells them, you all have risked everything to protect the Jedi, at least let me return the favor. There is no other way than this. I must face him, and you need the time I will give you to get you to safety.
Obi Wan Kenobi gets on the ship and Darth Vader senses him, and he tells the Grand Inquisitor, "I will go after him. He is no ordinary Jedi. Darth Vader wants to kill him, and he will not stop at anything to find him and kill him. The Grand Inquisitor told him, we have a chance to kill them and end this for good. Darth Vader tells the people on the ship, prepare my shuttle, I must face Obi Wan Kenobi alone. Obi Wan Kenobi is landing on a planet. This will lead to an epic battle between Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader. It was a hard battle, but Obi Wan Kenobi did beat Darth Vader. He tries to see if he can reach Anakin Skywalker, but Darth Vader told him, you did not kill Anakin, I did. Obi Wan Kenobi realizes that his friend is truly dead. When Vader’s helmet is partially cut and his breathing apparatus damaged, this is remarkably like horror. Again, there is nothing wrong with mixing genres. What this proves when Darth Vader said he killed Anakin Skywalker is that sometimes, we can be our own worst enemy.
Beru and Owen Lars must protect Luke from Reva. They have not fared well against her. Reva believes if she kills Luke, then she will make Darth Vader pay. As she finds out, it will not make the pain any less. She decides not to kill Luke. Obi Wan Kenobi later tells her, you have chosen mercy and you honored their memories. Reva drops the lightsaber, and she is free of the pain that she has been carrying.
As not spoil anymore, it does bring it the climax of this series. It ends the way it should end to build up to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
I give Obi Wan Kenobi Part IV to Part VI, a 10 out 10. It did an excellent job of feeling like Star Wars and building off the previous movies such as the Prequels and connecting this to the original trilogy.
