Why Some Star
Wars Fans Are So
With Obi-Wan
"Obi-Wan Kenobi" has been on the receiving end of a wide range of reactions in the weeks since its debut. The show has certainly won over certain "Star Wars" fans with its bold creative decisions and unique visual style, but many viewers have been disappointed with the long-awaited Disney+ series up to this point.
Redditor complaints about the series begin with its "weak writing" and extend to its editing and handling of legendary characters like Obi-Wan, Leia, and Darth Vader. u/CaptainAshbyClark wrote, "There are some scenes that–by filmmaking practice and standards–are just bad."
Some "Star Wars" fans have found the technical aspects of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" — specifically, its direction and narrative structure — lacking. These fans' opinions may be changed, and only time will truly tell where "Obi-Wan Kenobi" ultimately ranks among their fellow "Star Wars" TV shows and movies.
