Does Star Wars have an obsession with Grogu? We talk about the “formula” that they are replicating in Obi-Wan Kenobi to emulate the success of the little guy.
The first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi have shown that the series of starwars are still obsessed with the concept of grog. At least, that is how they have defended it in ScreenRant. After the success of The Mandalorian Y The Book of Boba Fettthe new series of the galactic saga in Disney+ It comes to bridge the gap between the prequels and the original trilogy. Ewan McGregor has resumed his role as the old Jedi Master. is hidden in tatooine and watch a young man Luke Skywalker. However, he ends up being recruited by his old friend dance organ to rescue read of a flag of kidnappers led by Vect Nokru. But what does that have to do with The Child?
According to Screen Rant, the relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Leia Organa in the Star Wars series is too similar to that of Din Djarin and Grogu in The Mandalorian. We are shown a fiercely independent, resourceful and charismatic young princess. The pair immediately form a kind of double act in the second episode that recalls the ‘buddy movie’ of The Mandalorian. These parallels apparently ran deeper in the spin-off movie script than we ever saw.
The parallelism between two series and two characters
In that movie Obi-Wan Kenobi which was cancelled, the former Jedi Master was protecting a young Luke Skywalker from a variety of villains, including Darth Maul. While the Star Wars series changed the Skywalker brothers in the series version, the similarities to Grogu and The Mandalorian are still present. This suggests that in lucasfilm Y Disney are worried about straying too far from the winning formula that is The Mandalorian. A formula they invented just a couple of years ago.
Having the concept of protecting Princess Leia as the central point of Obi-Wan Kenobi does not eliminate the obvious parallels with The Mandalorian. The program continues to be inspired by narratives such as Lone wolf and cub either Lion. This worried Dave Philoni Y Jon Favreau when they talked to deborah chow, director of the new Star Wars series. Ultimately, Leia is like Grogu: a charismatic plot element with almost mythological importance. Her Force abilities, something that is already confirmed, would end up bringing yet another parallel with The Child in The Mandalorian.
