The highly anticipated Star Wars spin-off series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, coming to Disney+, has many Star Wars fans wondering how much story Lucasfilm will be able to pack into this six episode mini series. Some even wonder if only six episodes is even enough to give us a good look into the life of the self exiled Jedi since the fall of the Republic.
Well now according to Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, there appears to be a chance for a second season. When asked about that possibility she stated:
“It’s certainly something we talk about. Mainly because everybody came together and had such an incredible time. Ewan had an incredible time. Hayden had an incredible time. So certainly from that point of view, everybody involved would love to see this not end. But we have to really spend our time asking the question ‘Why would we do it?’. If we were to decide to do anything more with the Obi-Wan character, we’d have to really answer the question why?“
Though it is only a small possibility, getting a second season not only will we get the rematch between Vader and Kenobi (even though it goes against continuity), but perhaps there is a chance we may see Darth Maul make an appearance, as around this time he would be in hiding. Seeing actor Ray Park come back to play the role would definitely be a treat for long time prequel fans.
The series will also introduce a few brand new characters in a edition to reintroducing older ones like the Grand Inquisitor from the Star Wars: Rebels animated series.
The series is set to premier on May 25th exclusively on Disney Plus, just in time for the 45th Anniversary of the Star Wars franchise.
