Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 5

Penultimate appointment, at least according to what we know at the moment, with Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Disney + series that brought the Jedi master played by Ewan McGregor back into action. A series that divided spectators and fandoms, charged with creating a link between the Prequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy, but which apparently showed some gaps in terms of respect for the Star Wars Canon. A topic that can be better addressed at the conclusion of this story arc, but that does not stop us from launching ourselves in the hunt for quotes and references in Obi-Wan Episode 5.

Subscribe now to Disney + for € 8.99 per month or € 89.90 per year As already mentioned several times, the presence of several works of the vast multimedia offer of the franchise set during the period of the Rise of the Empire (between The Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope) has contributed to giving a first definition of the events that led to our first adventure in the distant galaxy, helping to give Obi-Wan Kenobi a narrative direction. With the consequence that the references and the citations also of Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 5 assume the role of key of readings of elements of the future of the protagonists.

Warning: the following contains spoilers on the fifth episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi

A look at the past| ); }

Also in the Jedi Temple we are brought back during Reeva's memory of her past, in which we have the confirmation that the Third Sister was one of the young students seen in the opening scene of the first episode. We then discover that Reeva was present just when Anakin, just becoming Darth Vader, executed Order 66 by attacking the Temple and exterminating even the little students, as seen in Revenge of the Sith.

To chase Obi-Wan, Vader uses a Star Destroyer, the Devastator, which we had already seen in the opening scenes of A New Hope. This presence in Obi-Wan Kenobi of the Devastator represents a retcon, considering that the spaceship would have been assigned to the command of the Dark Lord of the Sith only four years after the rescue mission of the young Leia, as told in the novel The Rebellions Begins, linked to the animated series Star Wars Rebels.

Other tracks of the Jedi

As in the refuge on Mapuzo, several Jedi have also passed in the base of the Path on Jabiim, as Obi-Wan discovers when he sees their lightsabers and their cloaks. During one scene, Obi-Wan sees a series of engravings on a wall, showing both sentences dear to the Jedi Order and the names of members of the Order who have passed through that refuge.

Among the sentences translated from Arabic, you can see the inevitable That the Force is with you and There is no death, referring to the last passage of the Jedi mantra (there is no death , there is the Force. In addition to these phrases, there are also the names of several Jedi, including the aforementioned Roganda Ismanen and Dijnn Altis, while they make their appearance, directly from the Legends, Tiberus (probably the Tiberus Anderlock in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, the famous Jedi pilot introduced in the Jump to Lightspeed expansion) and Corwin Shelway, who in Legends escaped Order 66 with his master, Darrin Arkanian, only to slip dangerously to the dark side after his master was killed .

Stylistic references to the saga

As appreciable as the desire to give a new grit to the series, it is evident that Debora Chow drew inspiration for some of the most intense scenes at moments already seen in the saga In Vader's walk to the the interior of the corridors of the base of the Path hard not to see the gait of the Dark Lord of the Sith in the base of Hoth as seen in The Empire Strikes Back, while the way he forcibly restrains the transport departing from Jabiim, is reminiscent of the scene in The Rise of Skywalker where Rey makes a similar gesture.

Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 5

Obi-Wan Kenobi's fifth chapter tries to revive the fortunes of a series that has divided the fandom. With this episode we try to give greater depth to the characterization of the three main protagonists (Kenobi, Vader and Reeva), reconnecting to their past making it the focal point of their current emotional condition. To benefit particularly from this attention is Vader, who especially if listened to in the original language, is portrayed with attention to his transitory condition, still blinded by a thirst for revenge that pushes him to unleash the Dark Side as a manifestation not only of power, but as a sort of blatant hatred of his new condition. A feeling that binds him more to Vader seen in the comic series of the same name, where Soules and Camuncoli told his difficult path of acceptance of his new body and the emotional wounds following Revenge of the Sith.

Even Reeva, although far from being a memorable figure in Star Wars, appears to be more focused, while not being able to get rid of the feeling of speck, a character so extreme in his undisguised anger that he often loses coherence and credibility.

The final judgment on Obi-Wan Kenobi is postponed until next week, when with the last chapter we will finally discover the fate of the Jedi master.
