Details have hurtled through space to earth regarding a major confrontation in the Obi-Wan Kenobi season finale. Making Star Wars continues to spill the tea on what fans can expect from Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the tell-all on all things Star Wars site has now shared even more leaked intel on the sixth and final episode.
Newly emerged details on the Disney+ series have shed some interglactic light on a massive confrontation that is set to take place in the finale, but fair warning that there are major spoilers about how the episode concludes…
It appears we will be getting a massive— potentially character-changing moment—involving young Luke Skywalker…
First off, Moses Ingram’s Reva is initially disregarded by The Grand Inquisitor when she claims to intuitively sense Obi-Wan on Tatooine, but she’s wittier than her boss gives her credit for. The villain has managed to figure out that “Ben” Kenobi had been seeking refuge on the planet to protect Anakin Skywalker’s son, Luke. Additionally, after his final battle with Darth Vader, Obi-Wan he races home to stop her from harming him.
The site has no intel on what Reva has planned for the boy, but it does confirm that when the Jedi Master arrives, he finds Owen and Beru subdued by the Sith Inquisitor and Luke watching on as she stands in front of him, lightsaber ignited and all.
Recalling her own traumatic childhood and the tumultuous life she’s been subjected to, Reva is unable to kill or take the child. She instead leaves the planet with her integrity and humanity intact.
The young Luke doesn’t understand what’s happened, and while Owen had previously disregarded Obi-Wan, he now has an idea of why the child must be protected.
Due to that, Owen finally allows his nephew to have the coveted T-16 Skyhopper toy that Obi-Wan bought for him in the premiere episode, a gift he initially refused to give to the boy. This provides a touching moment that brings the story full circle. It’s clear that even with this grand moment, there is still more to come involving Reva and Darth Vader.
The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is directed by Deborah Chow and executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Chow, McGregor, and Joby Harold.
The 6-part series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Friday, May 27, with the first two episodes. Following the premiere, the series will stream weekly on Wednesdays, until the finale on Wednesday, June 22.
