New story for “Star Wars” series about Obi-Wan Kenobi? With Anakin and (!) Darth Vader
A series about Obi-Wan Kenobi is currently being developed for Disney – and its story is said to have changed significantly compared to previous rumors and now offers more points of reference to familiar elements.
A few months ago it became known that the production of a “Star Wars” series for Disney with Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi had been massively delayed again. Because with Joby Harold (“King Arthur”) a new author was hired and the previously responsible Hossein Amini (“47 Ronin”) replaced. And Harold has allegedly developed a new story with the responsible director Deborah Chow (“The Mandalorian”), who will direct all episodes.
At least that’s what Kessel Run Transmissions reports, a podcast that caught the eye with true inside information: They were able to report the production of the “Star Wars” series “The Bad Batch” weeks earlier than Disney released this information.
Obi-Wan has to hide
According to information from Kessel Run Transmissions, the old idea that has been making the rounds (but has never been officially confirmed) is obsolete. According to the old circulating description, the series should mostly take place between “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” and “Episode IV: A New Hope”, where Obi-Wan keeps a watchful eye on young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. However, there were also rumors that a young Leia was also appearing, so Obi-Wan was leaving his post.
The new idea should now start somewhere else. The focus is probably on the Empire’s hunt for Obi-Wan. With the issuing of the so-called Order 66, the clone warriors received the order to kill all Jedi and discover that Obi-Wan is not dead after all. In this context, Darth Vader should also play a role in the series.

However, flashbacks should also be part of the new idea – right in the middle of the climax of the Clone Wars and thus directly to the events in the series “The Clone Wars”. Commander Cody (Temuera Morrison) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) supposedly play important roles here.

Double deepening of figure relationships?
The mention of Commander Cody, Anakin and his later alter ego Darth Vader lead us to speculate that figures could be deepened on two sides.
That Commander Cody played an important role in the flashbacks could indicate an additional important role in the hunt for Obi-Wan. After all, Cody was ordered to take down Obi-Wan, shot at him in “Revenge of the Sith” and was thus responsible for his alleged death. But in contrast to the other clone soldiers, Cody was never completely convinced that Obi-Wan really died falling into a water hole. So is he continuing the search?

StarWarsNewsNet.com insiders, on the other hand, find it particularly interesting that Anakin and his alter ego Darth Vader are performing, which could also deepen this relationship with Obi-Wan. They also point out that there is still a famous line of dialogue in this context, the origin of which has not yet been properly explored.

Does fan theory come true?
When Luke tries in “Return of the Jedi” to bring Darth Vader back to the light side of the Force because he still sees good in him, he says that Obi-Wan once thought that too. But we have never really seen such a moment.
During the fight on Mustafar, Obi-Wan tries to bring Anakin to his senses, but many fans always wondered if this was really the moment alluded to in “Return of the Jedi”. Because the dialogues don’t exactly match. So there has long been the theory that there must have been another meeting between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. At StarWarsNewsNet.com it is speculated that a series about Obi-Wan could resolve this conflict and show this meeting, which would confirm the old fan theory.

Why is Obi-Wan leaving Tatooine?
But there is an interesting problem with the alleged new idea that the old idea, which has now apparently been discarded (never officially confirmed), caused headaches for fans: Both stories seem to lead Obi-Wan away from Tatooine (that the empire will track him down there , ultimately does not fit).
So there must be a really good reason for the dutiful Obi-Wan to leave his guardian post on the desert planet. Does he notice that Cody is still obsessively looking for him and moves away from Tatooine to lure his pursuer somewhere else and away from Luke?
