Lucasfilm keen on bringing Darth Vader back
Obi-Wan TV series will have Darth Vader as the villain. Earlier it was reported that Darth was added to the series as things didn’t work out for Maul. However Lucasfilm is denying to approach Maul altogether. The director of the series explained that Lucasfilm is interested to bring Darth Vader’s character as the bad guy. They all are very much involved in the character development too. Here is what Chow has to say:
“Honestly, for me the starting place was that I really wanted to do something that was character-based and character-driven, because that is the benefit of the limited series, is that you have more time to sort of tell a real character story. And so for me, the starting place of character is you just start and you look at who has been important to him in his life. And it’s quite hard to avoid Anakin/Vader in that scenario, especially coming out of Revenge of the Sith.”
Chow is happy to reveal that Obi-Wan TV series is already making waves. It will be fun for everyone to catch up with different generations of Star Wars. This will mix together and viewers can enjoy the best of everything.
