Obi-Wan Kenobi: this replica that made fans react "Star Wars"

The finale of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” will have offered fans a nice nod to the Star Wars films. A cult line that had already been heard from the mouths of Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness.

Finished for Obi-Wan Kenobi

Series Obi-Wan Kenobicentered on the famous Jedi between the events of Revenge of the Sith (2005) and A new hope (1977), closed after a sixth episode. A conclusion that serves to always connect more (than necessary) the first two trilogies. We thus saw Obi-Wan and Darth Vader clash once again and a “victory” for the light side of the force. Except that Vader hinted at feelings that are still present, and which will therefore come out in Return of the Jedi (1983). Likewise, Kenobi ended his journey peaceful, finally managing to see his former master Qui-Gon. A way to open the wise Obi-Wan played by Alec Guinness.

Even if these links are coherent, they seem to us to be over-explanatory and not very useful (see our review). The saga Star Wars already worked without it, and the out-of-focus areas simply required viewers to stretch their imaginations a bit. Nevertheless, some of the fans seem to have been convinced. And in the midst of all these elements, it must be admitted that certain nods to old films were well received. This is the case ofa cult replica of Ewan McGregorheard again in the finale ofObi-Wan Kenobi.

He said it !

As Owen allows him to finally meet young Luke, Obi-Wan approaches the boy and says, in English: hello there. Which could be translated as “Hello to you”. A phrase that is not insignificant for Star Wars fans. Indeed, before the series, Ewan McGregor had dropped this line to General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith. And before him, it was Alec Guinness who said it to R2D2 in A new hope. This phrase therefore became Obi-Wan’s signature and is now a meme on the internet.

Inevitably, the attentive spectators did not fail to note this moment. This “simple” sentence has delighted more than one as evidenced by certain reactions on Twitter.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is available in full at Disney+.
