The One Scene In Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi That Would Divide The Fandom

You know it's going to be a good day when a trailer for a new "Star Wars" property comes out.

Fans finally got their first look at the upcoming Disney+ series, "Obi-Wan Kenobi." It will see Ewan McGregor return to his role in the prequel series as the Jedi master to young Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen). The show will see him after the events of "Episode III," when he went into exile after Order 66 wiped out the Jedi Order. By the looks of it, he's spent quite a bit of time on Tatooine but will journey to other planets over the course of the series to escape the clutches of the Inquisitors.

For those of you not up-to-date on "Star Wars" lore, the Inquisitors are a group working with the Empire to hunt down any remaining Jedi, with Obi-Wan certainly falling into that category. They've been featured prominently in other "Star Wars" media, such as the video game "Jedi: Fallen Order" and the series "Star Wars Rebels." They're formidable foes, but there's one aspect about them fans can probably do without going into "Obi-Wan Kenobi."

Fans aren't sure how to feel about the helicopter lightsabers

As featured in the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" trailer, the Inquisitors have lightsabers that spin around. This talent was showcased extensively in "Star Wars Rebels," but it does more than just look cool. The Inquisitors have been known to fly around using their lightsabers, appearing as menacing forces in the sky before descending upon their enemies. 

The trailer raises a lot of questions, but the inquiry at the forefront of some fans' minds is whether we'll see some Inquisitors use their lightsabers as helicopters in the upcoming live-action series. Based on chatter online, many believed it looked goofy in cartoon form, so there's not much hope if they do it in live-action.

A group of Redditors pondered precisely that as u/ItsJustEoin kicked things off, "Are we getting a live action helicopter saber scene?" The reaction to such a question was mixed, with u/CaptainAmericaDad saying, "I only hate the actual helicopter flying but everything else is awesome." Others hope we don't get a scene with helicoptering just for the memes it would inspire otherwise: "You better hope not because there will be a TikTok meme with that 'Helicopter, Helicopter' sound playing over the scene if it does happen."

No matter which side of the argument you fall on when it comes to helicopter lightsabers, the one thing all "Star Wars" fans can agree on is that the hype for "Obi-Wan Kenobi" is through the roof. Hopefully, it lives up to these lofty expectations.
