    6 Things I'm Excited For In "Obi-Wan Kenobi" And 6 Things I Dread

    Would a duel between Kenobi and Vader be good or bad?

    Everyone is excited to welcome Ewan McGregor back into the Star Wars universe in his titled role of Obi-Wan Kenobi on May 27th.

    Here are some things I feel could make or break the show, the same way I was worried about The Book of Boba Fett:

    1. MAKE: Give us a different Obi-Wan.

    2. BREAK: We get a nostalgia act for Revenge of the Sith fans.

    3. MAKE: The Inquisitors are menacing and calculated.

    4. BREAK: The Inquisitors become nothing more than Saturday morning cartoon villains.

    5. MAKE: A Vader-Kenobi showdown IF they can do it without obliterating the timeline.

    6. BREAK: Too much Vader in an Obi-Wan show.

    7. MAKE: This will sound silly...but having "a point" to a show other than us all loving Ewan McGregor as Kenobi.

    8. BREAK: Too much filler in a show that doesn't need it.

    9. MAKE: Please, for the love of the Force, develop your new characters like they are important and not just "along for the ride" or one-shot comic book villains.

    10. BREAK: The Mandalorian learns how to time travel and hijacks another show.

    11. MAKE: Kenobi "dies" because he kind of has to die.
