'Star Wars' Fans React To The Epic Conclusion Of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

  • The sixth and likely final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi premiered on Wednesday.
  • The episode brought the thrilling season-long confrontation between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader to a close.
  • Star Wars fans were virtually unanimous in their praise for the series.

The sixth and final episode of the hit Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi hit Disney+ this week, and with it came an epic conclusion (for now, of course) to the ongoing conflict between Obi-Wan and his former Padawan Anakin Skywalker, a.k.a Darth Vader.

Once the episode made its debut on Disney+, Star Wars fans immediately took to Twitter to hail the finale and the series as a whole, which has clearly been much better received by the fandom than The Book of Boba Fett was.

As Lucasfilm and Disney first promised when the series was first announced, Obi-Wan Kenobi absolutely delivered the “rematch of the century” between Obi-Wan and Vader in this series-ending episode.

In an interview earlier this month, McGregor — who was also an executive producer on Obi-Wan Kenobi — said that he hopes to continue playing the character after having such a great experience making this show.

“I hope it’s not the last time I play him. I had such a great time doing this. I’m sure we can think of a few more stories before I turn into Alec Guinness, don’t you think?” McGregor said during an interview with RadioTimes.

Obi-Wan Kenobi won’t be the only addition to the Star Wars universe this summer, as the Diego Luna-starring Rogue One prequel Andor will be hitting Disney+ in August.
