‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ episode three boasts plenty of action, but old Ben isn’t the Jedi he once was


Disney Plus (opens in new tab) revelers were left champing at the bit when ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ episode two ended with a tantalizing teaser of Darth Vader chilling in his bacta tank. Unfortunately, poor old Ben didn’t look nearly as relaxed. In fact, he looked like he’d seen a ghost, and not the sparkly glowy Jedi kind! 

As you can imagine, episode three is all about Darth Vader’s return and yes, we now know that James Earl Jones has reprised his role as the Dark Lord’s menacing voice (with a little assistance from an AI (opens in new tab)). But although Obi-Wan and Vader finally cross laser swords, this probably isn’t the rematch you’ve been hoping for. Old Ben can barely find his lightsaber’s on switch, let alone put up much of a fight against the Empire’s finest.
