TV Discussion – Kenobi – How “Julie & Julia” could serve as

So what now? How do you even give a explanation for a year 2? Allow for me to pitch this with two terms: Force ghosts.

Yup, getting Qui-Gon Jinn’s Pressure ghost in a period 2 is a presented. That considerably is specified. But executing 6 episodes of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon’s Pressure ghost in his hut could possibly to be too tantalizing for a wider viewers. Though I simply cannot support emphasize this sufficient, I would’ve watched Obi-Wan ride his eopie all throughout Tatooine as a basis for Ewan to appear back in the initial area. So I would surely observe just Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon speak and chat and communicate for 6 episodes for a opportunity time 2.

But….that’s just me. Not excellent plenty of of a reason to do a massive-price range time 2 for small old me. The environment doesn’t revolves just about me, ya know?

So here’s what I recommend. The showrunners and writers could acquire a site out of “Julie & Julia”. You know that movie with Meryl Streep taking part in planet-well known chef Julia Child in her own period and Amy Adams actively playing a recent-era character that was cooking and blogging Child’s renowned dishes by examining her guide?

Here’s my premise: it’s 4 ABY (Soon after Battle of Yavin) aka directly after “Return of the Jedi” (ROTJ). Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker has no notion how to “pass on what he has learned”. So he went visiting all across the galaxy to hunt down Jedi relics & holocrons for guidance while encountering folks that required enable from him.

He is also visited by the Force ghost of Ben Kenobi (even now played by Ewan but aged up & maybe with prosthetics to glance like Sir Alec Guinness) whom will also give Luke instructions on a religious journey when Luke also proceeds to identify old Jedi relics and holocrons & on his people-conserving adventures.

Ben Kenobi then regaled Luke with tales of his old master Qui-Gon Jinn and how he had learnt from Qui-Gon to 1 day come to be a single with the Pressure and manifests as a Drive ghost as well.

Then the series will go back in time to 13 BBY (Right before Struggle of Yavin) and picked up where we still left off in OWK Year 1: Obi-Wan’s new Tatooine property and communing with Qui-Gon’s Force ghost. What Obi-Wan learns from Qui-Gon on his new religious journey to develop into a Force ghost will tie again to the present time of Luke saving people & accumulating Jedi relics.

At the exact time, as Luke is conserving individuals although remaining on a non secular journey with Ben Kenobi’s Drive ghost in 4 ABY, Obi-Wan himself also have to reckon with preserving a shrinking tribe of Tusken Raiders led by A’Yark from a Krayt dragon in 13 BBY.

So primarily, OWK Year 2 is demonstrating us two eras from the viewpoints of Obi-Wan in the previous and Luke in the present but intrinsically related by their solo adventures preserving life and learning how to turn out to be a Drive ghost from their possess masters. We will last but not least understand the coaching approach included on how to become a Force ghost and how Obi-Wan learnt to mimic the Krayt dragon roar in ANH.

You could even have Pressure ghost Anakin (played by Hayden) and Force ghost Yoda (voiced & puppeteered by Frank Oz) generating appearances together with Ben Kenobi’s Force ghost to give Luke advice. But Ben Kenobi is the key Pressure ghost to Luke in the collection.

By the conclude of period 2, in 4 ABY, Luke is formally minted Jedi Master by the Pressure ghosts although finally conserving some lives & getting all those Jedi relics and holocrons for him to create his new Jedi training academy although in 13 BBY, Obi-Wan have aided the Tuskens to slay the Krayt dragon as a last check for him to unlock the mystery of turning out to be a Power ghost just after loss of life.

That is my pitch and I think it could be a truly intriguing way to do a time 2 whilst owning Ewan, Hayden, Liam Neeson, Frank Oz and even Mark Hamill associated in the series.

The cause to do a time 2 is clear. Let us ****ing go!
