‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ episode 4: A daring rescue that doesn’t quite hit the mark


Obi-Wan narrowly escaped Darth Vader’s clutches last week, but the Empire still ended up with a win in the form of a captive Leia. It’s hardly surprising then that anyone tuning into Disney Plus (opens in new tab) this week gets to follow the titular hero as he infiltrates the supposedly impregnable Fortress Inquisitorius to rescue the princess. 

If old Ben heading off to save Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire sounds at all familiar, that’s because it’s essentially the plot of ‘A New Hope’. But, if you were expecting plenty of Darth Vader, you might want to manage those expectations. The question is, can Reva and co hold the fort in his absence? And can Star Wars’ latest rescue mission live up to the universally adored season finale of ‘The Mandalorian’?
