Fans would rather ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ director stay away from ‘Star Wars’


through Lucasfilm

By and enormous, Obi-Wan Kenobi did the job it was alleged to. Ewan McGregor delivered the products as an older model of the title hero, Hayden Christensen rehabilitated his fame, and we obtained some enjoyable new hyperlinks between prequels and sequels. Although the present was certainly not a catastrophe, it wasn’t the house run many had hoped for.

Common criticisms are the sequence’ repetitive pacing, some shoddy motion sequences, nonsensical character selections, and a normal feeling that regardless of this being Disney’s flagship streaming present, budgetary corners had been minimize.

Fans on r/StarWars put the blame on director Deborah Chow, who minimize her tooth in a galaxy far, distant by helming two episodes of The Mandalorian‘s first season. Clearly, someone at Lucasfilm was impressed, as she was picked to direct all six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Unfortunately, if the reaction here is anything to go by, something went wrong along the way.

Replies have issues with the overuse of shaky-cam, a dowdy orchestral score that didn’t use many John Williams classics, the tempo and blocking of motion scenes, and no sense of ‘epic’ storytelling. Many would relatively Bryce Dallas Howard (one other The Mandalorian alum) had been given the Obi-Wan Kenobi director’s chair, although as this proves, directing a single episode nicely doesn’t imply you possibly can tackle a whole sequence.

But no matter followers need, we’re already getting extra Chow in Star Wars very quickly. She’s directed the fourth episode of Andor, so let’s hope that’s extra according to her The Mandalorian work than Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is obtainable to stream in full on Disney Plus, and Andor will premiere on August 31, 2022.
