Star Wars: Obi-Wan Plot
Obi-Wan Kenobi will be set in a time that occurs after the events of Revenge of the Sith. Anakin Skywalker has finished off his transition to the Dark Side. For people who haven’t watched Star Wars might need to watch the previous parts of the franchise as the plot will be followed along similar paths.
The show will focus on the events during the 19-year gap between the Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. We will see the characters of Owen and Beru bringing up a young boy Luke Skywalker.
We all know that Darth Maul survived at the end of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, and it is highly likely that he will be making a return on the show. He is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining villains and the eventual re-meeting and encounter of the other characters and him would be a treat to watch.
