    I appreciate the color for Luke's lightsaber. The light blue instead of Anakin's darker azure. I wish in the sequel trilogy they had gone with the light blue from the OG trilogy. Great job!

    Is this a resume or a middle finger? or both?

  • Kypduron1

    Absolutely brilliant, really well made, excellent cast and Jamie Costa's voice is slap bang right in the middle of Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor... or was that actually recordings from them? Anyway, thank you so much for making this, really made my day.

    Just by looking at this my stomach feeling tells me it has better potential then the real deal from Disney+. Looking at you: "Obi-Wan KENOBI (2022 Disney+): A Star Wars Story - Teaser Trailer Concept | Star Wars Series"

    Very good. Excellent in every aspect and detail. Kudos to everyone involved. Kenobi struggling to use the Jedi mind trick was a great twist. My only gripe is the long hair on the Imperial Officer. It doesn’t look right to me. I wish in the original Star Wars that Luke had only known him as “Old Ben”. Please keep it up.

    Awesome film guys. I do have one question though. Why did Obi-Wan use Anakin's lightsaber here?

  • Tyler Eskola

    Obi wan should have used his own lightsaber in one of his arms and Anakin's lightsaber in the other

    This was amazing! I am an original Star Wars Fan (I'm 66) but I've loved almost all of the spin-offs. This, however, is one of the best I've seen. You, Jamie Costa, have done a splendid job on this film. Much respect and admiration. Star Wars needs you!!

  • pears009

    The filming and effects were brilliant for a “Fan Made” short film!!! If the acting abs story were better... ( Could have spent way more time in the writing. It was sub par IMO... ) But all in all it was great! Could have been brilliant! Just, again, needed better acting and script... But this is just one Mans opinion...

    That was such a satisfying little easter egg at end. Love the way it connected to the first line of the film. Glad I waited through the credits, I knew there would be something!

    In the future when kenobi comes out people will think why did you make this

  • taxid3rmy

    It's been almost a year since i first saw this amazing short film, and after a second take - and with much thought within that time, i feel that my original comment really didn't do this production enough justice. So without further delay, the sentiments i had initially - but failed to deliver on originally: have (easily) achieved in this sub-20 minute epic, what Disney failed to achieve in two abominable full-length features over the last five years. In less than twenty minutes i recalled all the reasons why i loved the original, Star Wars trilogy. I experienced all the believability of the stories (and story-lines) of the original trilogy, the incredible characters, the emotional connection to the key characters, and thrill and excitement the movie makers provided with the "icing on top" - incredible special effects and screenplay execution. The sad thing is this isn't just a commentary on movies, it's become a (all-too-common) social commentary and indictment on our times - specifically the last 20 years.

    this takes place in 16 bby because luke looks like he is 3 and he was born in 19 bby. kenobi's age at this point is atleast 41 and 0 bby he was 57. incase you were wondering (; edit: nvm luke was probably 2 making obi wan 40 and making this 17 bby

    Война сама собой производит войну и продолжает её без конца. Победивший народ, опьянённый успехом, стремится к новым победам; пострадавший же народ, раздражённый поражением, спешит восстановить свою честь и свои потери.

    Well that's it, after watching many videos, after returning my love for Star Wars after watching The Mandalorian (and then everything: animation series, other fan films ...) I can say that this, this is the best thing that I've never seen in a Star Wars Fan Film and a Fan Film in general. Portentous. Now that they are doing the Obi Wan series, please Lucasfilm producers see this. Because this is what it should be. Thanks for this wonder.

    Some of the ideas we've seen before in Rogue One. That said, huge Death Star-sized plaudits to the team who made this. If this were part of a boxed set I could have binge watched it all night. Please make some more. Thanks again.

  • Ahron

    The only question worth asking, why is this a short film?
