In “The Originals”, the term ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ is used to imply that an event is routine, predictable, and not particularly remarkable. This article aims to review “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” – a film some view as the continuation of a ‘new generation’ of Star Wars films started by J.J Abrams in “The Force Awakens”. J.J Abrams, the director of “The Force Awakens”, recreates a galaxy far, far away in our modern-day world. Abrams himself has stated that he was “surprised to find that [he] couldn’t get the feel of Star Wars from [his] own generation”. As a George Lucas fan himself, this is understandable.
Introduction to the Obi-Wan Kenobi
“If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could imagine.” With those words spoken by Obi-Wan Kenobi, we are introduced to a Jedi who is never far from his master’s side. The Jedi Master has been training the young Obi-Wan for years. Despite his youth and growing impatience, he never gives up on becoming an independent Jedi Knight to honor his name and the traditions of his Order. In the end, he does become one of the most powerful Jedi Masters of all time. There are a lot of great aspects to this character: The young but experienced Jedi Knight who would go on to become one of the greatest Jedi Masters in history, the mysterious and effective yet patient mentor who prays Obi-Wan will not fall when his own emotions get the best of him.

The storyline of the Obi-Wan Kenobi
The story tells of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Knight who served the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars. As with most Jedi at this time, he was “the chosen one”, destined to bring balance to the Force. He would accomplish great things in his long, difficult life, most notably coming out victorious in the Clone Wars and losing an arm during a duel with Darth Maul. After his service on Utapau, Obi-Wan became an infamous hermit living on Tatooine. He gained fame from his exploits, and the deeds he performed during his life made him a posthumous Jedi Master.
The Actor Who Played Obi-Wan Kenobi Details Why They Brought back To Star Wars
This is a morbid story of how an actor’s life was buried under the weight of Star Wars. Actors Hugh Quarshie and Ray Park were good friends with director George Lucas, working together on various projects. Quarshie had nothing to do with the making of The Phantom Menace but Park did, playing Darth Maul and during filming, he slipped him a copy in return for never speaking of it to anyone. When Park got back on set shooting Episode II he couldn’t help but tell Quarshie all about it.
Quarshie was immediately jealous of all the fun he missed out on and decided he wanted to get involved. Unfortunately, though, Quarshie’s character of Captain Panaka had been killed off by the time of Episode I, so a return wasn’t possible and his agent told him that the chances were pretty slim.
