It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. But reports from Ewan McGregor and others involved are promising for Season 2. But how will the “Star Wars” series really continue?
Obi-Wan Kenobi is over for now. But after the final episode 6 aired on Disney +, fans naturally wondered if the “Star Wars” series would be extended to a second season. At first, the OP-Van adventure was designed as a short series, but over the past few weeks and months, reports from those involved have heaped that point for the second season.
In this article, how much is Season 2 possible? In addition, we go to our video editor Sebastian to get to the bottom of the question of how such a sequel can proceed.
‘I Love It’: Evan McGregor in ‘Obi-Van’ Season 2
One thing is for sure: there could not be a second season of Obi-Wan Canopy without Evan McGregor. That’s why in the FILMSTARTS interview we asked the lead actor if he could imagine appearing more as an OP-van, for example the second season. His response was not only positive, but apparently pleasing:
“I like it. I don’t know what it would be like to play with him again It was so much fun, I’m so ready to do another season … Then another … then another, then another … then another, then I would be about 65 years old. By then I will be almost old Alec Guinness [als er Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode 4 spielte]. I keep going until every time they artificially revive me so I can go.“

Sure, the answer has to be a little humorous, but that doesn’t change the fact that Evan McGregor enjoys his “Star Wars” role so much and wants to return as an OP-van at any moment. He has recently explained this to the press GQ: “I hope we do something else [Staffel 2] To do. If I could do one of these things over and over again, I’m glad I did. “
Hayden Christensen also likes “Star Wars”
The same is true for Hayden Christensen. He also explained to FILMSTARTS about further possible “Star Wars” appearances as Darth Vader: “I love the ‘Star Wars’ universe, and this character means so much to me. I think there’s definitely a lot more to be done, and I’m very open to that as well.

The Anakin / Vader actor has given similar responses to other media outlets, although he has always been very careful not to talk about “OP-Von” season 2, but also emphasizes his general openness in “Star Wars” projects. It is already known that Hayden Christensen will also be involved in the upcoming “Asoka” series:

This is what “Star Wars” boss Kathleen Kennedy and director Deborah Chow say
Kathleen Kennedy, the head of Lucasfilm and the key figure responsible for the entire “Star Wars” ownership, already had an interview in March this year. Entertainment Weekly Magazine Hope for Season 2. He stressed that “everyone had a great time together” and “everyone involved is happy to see.” [würde]It will not stop. ” However, she also made a warning.
Kennedy: “If we decide to do something else in the role of Obi-Wan, we have to answer the question: why?”
Obi-Wan director Deborah Chow disagrees Entertainment tonight Similar: “If we continue, it will only be if someone else has a real reason [Staffel] There are. “
In the end, it is up to Kathleen Kennedy in particular to decide whether “Obi-Wan Canobi” will continue. The only thing she could not do without was Evan McGregor. But he has already made it clear through his statements that he will be there at any time.
What else speaks for and against Season 2
The only question now is whether there is a real reason for Season 2. The Disney Plus series has received mixed reviews from fans. There are disappointments, joys and balanced voices. The OP-Von has an average rating of 7.2 on the IMDB. It’s not bad, but it’s worse than The Montessori (8.7) and The Book of Bopa Fed (7.4).
Kathleen Kennedy should be more interested in whether the series is financially worthwhile than fan opinion. The premiere of the first two episodes set a Disney + record. In the weeks that followed, the series became the most-ever-streamed series ever, at least in the United States, talking about a second season.
Now that the major confrontation between OP-Von and Darth Vader seems to be over, the problem may be due to the lack of more offers in its sequel compared to Season 1. All of these pros and cons have to be weighed, and now we can not predict what Disney and Lucasfilm will decide.
How can OP-Van Canopy Season 2 continue?
As already mentioned, Season 2 will face the great challenge of creating another exciting story about OP-Sky. Like the comics, it is imaginary that he will meet Wookiee Black Crosonden, who is already known to fans of the series from “The Book of Boba Fed”. Or the Jedi dedicates himself too much to his spiritual side and learns the ability to become a force demon from Qi-kon Jin. But while those options seem so unusual compared to the Vader clash in Season 1, it’s hard to imagine how effectively the second season could actually continue the story. OP-Van has little chance of violating the “Star Wars” canon.
Considering what the second season of our YouTube Sebastian “Obi-Wan Kenobi” will look like, he gives you his own thoughts in the following video. However, he did not rule out that Darth Vader would still play a key role in the season.
