New Leak Tease A Boba Fett Series Connection In Obi-Wan Kenobi Show

Obi-Wan Kenobi gives Star Wars Fans a lot to look forward to. The series not only fills in a vital gap in Star Wars history by revealing what Obi-Wan did; between the prequels and the original trilogy, but it also serves as a mini-prequel reunion. Hayden Christensen reprises his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader; while the original Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen return. You’ve found the Disney+ series you’ve been looking for. Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will premiere with two episodes on May 27th, will finally disclose what happened to “Old Ben” during his exile on Tatooine; as well as introduce a young Luke Skywalker and live-action Jedi-hunting Inquisitors. If that wasn’t enough, Darth Vader, Kenobi’s fallen apprentice, will be reunited in the episode.

In fact, in addition to its ties to the original trilogy; Lucasfilm’s new Disney+ series, The Book of Boba Fett, includes multiple references to McGregor and Christensen’s Star Wars flicks. While Obi-Wan Kenobi will undoubtedly bring back memories; it’s important to remember that Star Wars is in a different position now than it was when Revenge of the Sith was released. With programmes like The Mandalorian; which incorporate MCU-inspired aspects like post-credits scenes, Disney+ has ushered in a new era of Star Wars.

Nostalgic Return Set On The Horizon

And now, just weeks before Obi-Wan Kenobi makes his big screen debut; a fresh rumor teases how Lucasfilm plans to employ these ’00s Star Wars stars in ways they weren’t in the prequel flicks. Star Wars would be well on its way to becoming a tradition with its post-credits scenes. A post-credits sequence has been used to introduce The Book of Boba Fett after The Mandalorian’s Season 2 finale. After Boba’s solo series ended, a post-credits scene of Cobb Vanth in a bacta tank; not only proved the character’s survival, but also teased his reappearance.

According to MakingStarWars.net, Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a post-credits sequence; and it will feature a bacta tank, just like The Book of Boba Fett. The distinction is that this scenario does not occur towards the conclusion of the series; and the person in the tank is none other than the Chosen One himself. A set for Darth Vader’s bacta tank was reportedly built in Southern California; with the goal of acting as the iconic characters introduction in Obi-Wan Kenobi, according to the story. Kenobi’s reunion with a young Princess Leia; at the end of the second episode of the series appears to cause a disturbance in the Force. Following this, the camera focuses on the murky fluid in Vader’s bacta tank as an eye suddenly pops up.

Anakin’s Healing Will Be Shown

After all, Obi-Wan Kenobi would not be the first time Vader has appeared in recent years to Star Wars fans. Vader returned to live-action in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; after appearing in animation in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars final season and Star Wars Rebels; The hallway sequence fight with the Sith Lord is largely considered one of Vader’s best – and most horrifying – moments ever. While much of the excitement surrounding Vader this time around stems from Christensen’s reappearance; and the backdrop of Anakin’s relationship with McGregor’s Obi-Wan; fresh Vader content must measure up to expectations.

It’s hard to imagine a stronger and more ominous entrance for Vader than this purported post-credits sequence. Obi-Wan Kenobi, which was initially scheduled to be released on Wednesday, May 25; is being pushed back to Friday, May 27. The show would also premiere with two episodes rather than one. If the story is true, viewers will be left with this sequence previewing Vader’s return until the third episode airs the following week. It’s not only a wonderful cliffhanger that’ll keep the internet talking for days; but it’s also the perfect introduction for the Sith Lord this time.

Even though an eye opening in bacta fluid isn’t an action sequence; it informs viewers that Kenobi awakened Vader, causing him to become engaged; as well as reminding them of Anakin’s terrible state and desire for vengeance. It remains to be seen whether this story, along with others circulating about the McGregor-led series, is accurate. Thankfully, fans will not have to wait long to find out. On May 27, the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on Disney+; Wednesday as the release day for the next episodes of the series.
