We’re staying in that Galaxy far, far away this week because the feels are real right now!
Like I explained last week, back near the turn of the century, I was getting my first fix of Star Wars when the prequels were still on the horizon. Oh, how hyped I was, and long before the movie was even out, it, like a Jedi’s lightsaber, was my life. And right at the top of all the awesomeness stood Ewan McGregor‘s Obi-Wan, who was the absolute coolest! From posters to videotaped documentaries to notebooks and lightsaber shaped pencils, I treasured everything Kenobi related I could get my hands on. I even remember printing out website pages with him on them when my dad took me to work once!
And now, nearly twenty years after we last saw him, Ewan’s back as the legendary Jedi Master, starring in his own series no less! Much to my delight, last Friday’s first two episodes did not disappoint in the slightest, even brought some unexpected but welcome points of view, and have me excited for what’s to come! All in all, it has me feeling like that kid in the late nineties again, and I’d say that’s at least worth a little haiku! ^_^
The wait is over
The fabled hero of old
Has returned at last
