This article contains plot details for the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The suspense is finally over, as the first two installments of Obi-Wan Kenobi have arrived on Disney Plus… three hours early. And fans haven’t been quiet about their enthusiasm for the new Star Wars series.
Fans from all over the galaxy waited till the episode dropped onto the streaming service. Some even admitted to staying up all night or leaving work early just so they could watch it immediately. No surprise, since “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett” received high praise from hardcore fans.
Fans of the original trilogy were ecstatic when the episodes referred to stories and characters from the Star Wars prequels, since it takes place ten years after Revenge of the Sith. Fans were in awe of the ominous prologue and how it helped propel the narrative forward.
However, Star Wars fans are screaming in anguish as the newest season of Stranger Things is also set to premiere on Netflix and they must choose which series to watch first.
The second episode featured some vintage drug—spice smuggling, and it’s easy to see why it reminds many people of another program. Fans of Breaking Bad, where are you?
But the weekly episode drop is still a contentious issue, with fans highly anticipating the first two episodes. Many fans were terrified by the final shot of episode two, which reintroduces Darth Vader.
While Twitter and Reddit appear to be on the same page with regard to the first two episodes, the Rotten Tomatoes audience rating paints a different picture. Obi-Wan Kenobi has a 63 percent audience approval rating, yet he appears to be lacking something for some people.
