    Default Skywalkers in Obi-Wan?

    So there's rumors now that not only Luke will show up but the Disney+ show might have some flashbacks/visions? with Hayden Christensen as Anakin.


    Bringing Hayden in to a Disney project has been of course floated for a while-there's concept art of him as a sort of mixed Anakin/Vader force ghost and of course he did do the vocal cameo for "Rise". Hayden Christensen seems to mainly be semi-retired from acting (although he does an occasional small-scale action movie or romantic comedy) but maybe he'll show up to film a few scenes. He also doesn't seem to have aged that much-he maybe looks a bit thinner now (He kind of bulked up a lot for ROTS) but apart from that he more or less looks the same IMO.

    Of course a young Luke (not played by Hammil) does makes sense as well as he was pretty much Obi-Wan's primary purpose for being on Tatooine in the first place.. Plus the original film pretty much did infer that they knew each other at least casually, although of course Ben doesn't tell him about who he really is until it becomes relevant (and even then of course he doesn't tell the whole truth).

    Maybe they share a blue milk.

    Why not, both Luke & Leia had cameos in Rebels.

    What's the point?
    Disney have completely erased the Skywalker bloodline. They're gone. Full stop.
    Kennedy and co. wanted Mary Rey Sue to inherit the title. If they think shoehorning the Skywalkers into the Kenobi series will make them more money, they're hypocrites.

    They're still alive when Kenobi is set, and a big part of his story. I don't think the series will focus entirely on Obi-Wan on Tatooine; perhaps some pressing emergency takes him briefly off-planet, and there could be flashbacks to other parts of Obi-Wan's life (Although currently not rumored, CBR's front page is advocating putting Qui-Gon in the series). Mandalorian used some Clone Wars flashbacks and given what we've heard of Cassian Andor it looks like that will likely have some to. So having a bit with Obi-Wan and Anakin doing something isn't unlikely.

    If you are going to do a Obi-Wan series you kind of have to do a Luke cameo. Rey isn't so much a Mary Sue as she is a Disney Princess dropped into Star Wars. I'm surprised you didn't use the more popular "MaRey Sue" lol.

    I think it all depends on what story they want to tell. I'm pretty sure that if they don't want a Luke cameo, they won't make one and be fine with it.

    I've not heard the term MaRey Sue. HA!

    My husband and I call her Beige MarySue. She has no personality, is boring, and blah.
    If Disney wanted to make her a Princess, she needed a personality, plus not write her as little miss perfect with very little practice and as the strongest jedi evahh!
    And as far as I'm concerned, the ONLY Disney Princess in the Disney Movies would have been Princess Leia.
    No one else comes close.

    This.
    I liked Rey when she was a nobody. Once she had a changed history she as just a rip off of Leia. Just as Poe was a rip off of Han Solo.
