According LRM Online, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi will face off twice in the upcoming limited-series. LRM added no additional details, but claimed the fights will be epic and could rank highly in some of the best Star Wars clashes of all time. The report from LRM follows a similar one from StarWarsTime.net back in September where they too claimed Kenobi and Vader could clash more than once in the series.
Darth Vader is rumoured to not appear in the series until the third episode, with the earlier two focusing on the Inquisitors and the capture and imprisonment of a young Leia Organa, giving Obi-Wan Kenobi a lot to deal with before coming face-to-face with his former padawan.
Kathleen Kennedy previously teased that the showdown between Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the Sith lord would be the rematch of the century, and from I’ve heard the final confrontation is one for the history books.
The rumours and leaks surrounding the hotly anticipated limited-series from Lucasfilm are coming thick and fast in recent weeks, and show no signs of stopping on the run up to the series premiere in May.
The upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series see’s the return of Ewan McGregor in the titular role, and Hayden Christensen as arguably the greatest villain of all time, Darth Vader. The series has been written by Joby Harold (Army of the Dead, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and will be directed entirely by Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian, Better Call Saul). The six episode series debuts it’s first episode on May 25th, the 45th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope.
