Spoilers through Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 3: “Part III” below. You have been warned!
The plot and pacing of Disney+ and LucasFilm star wars miniseries Obi Wan Kenobi heat up. This week’s episode, simply titled “Part III,” brought the main event: the first, but certainly not the last, fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and the man known as Dark. Vader (Hayden Christensen). Imagine Kenobi’s shock realizing that the man he thought he killed is not only very much alive, but considerably more powerful than before.
The events of “Part III” were what Disney and LucasFilm have long teased about the series, so who better to talk about how it all came together than series writer Joby Harold? Harold has no experience in the star wars galaxy before, but is no stranger to the world of franchises; he produced the third John Wick movie, wrote the next Transformers: Rise of the Beastsand worked on part of the flash movie slated for release next year. Oh, and he once worked with Christensen on the 2007 thriller Awake.
Complex spoke with Harold about how he got involved in Kenobihis creative partnership with series director Deborah Chow, the decision on which characters should feature in the story, and much more.
