The composer of the series Star Wars: Obi-Wan KenobiNatalie Holt, reveals if there will be a 2nd season
Ewan McGregor gave an emotional performance alongside Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker to tell the story of Obi-Wan 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
And while Obi-Wan Kenobi is said to be a limited series and has ended with an epic and satisfying ending, audiences are looking forward to another season. The last scene of the series provided viewers with the return of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn in the form of a Force ghost. This only increased his desire to see more of Obi-Wan’s history. With 9 years to go in the franchise timeline until the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The character of Obi-Wan still has a lot of room to tell more stories. If Obi-Wan Kenobi’s team wishes to expand Ben Kenobi’s story in the desert of Tatooine, something that we have seen in the comics.
Natalie Holt talks about a possible 2nd season
Now, series composer Natalie Holt has spoken about the likelihood that Obi-Wan Kenobi have a second season. Holt spoke with Star Wars News Net about her work on the Star Wars series and was faced with the question of whether or not there would be a second season and if she would return. The composer responded with a doubtor I do not know”. Since in a conversation he had with director Deborah Chow she stated that “It’s kind of a complete story.” Holt went on to discuss how much of the motivation for a season 2 comes from McGregor’s own love for his character. As Chow herself told Holt: “He’s so in love with being Obi, he wants to do it again.” Whether the series gets a second season or not, Holt insists that he “would love” come back and what “really enjoyed” the time spent with the team.
“I dont know. I’d love to [regresar para una temporada 2], but obviously, I talked to Deborah and she feels like it’s kind of the whole story. I think Ewan loves playing the character, and Deborah would say, “He’s so in love with being Obi that he wants to do it again.” I really enjoyed it and loved the team.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi’s future is uncertain at the moment, and even more so whether or not Natalie Holt will return for another season, although his words could be anticipating whether it could end up happening.
The audience numbers released so far are very solid and would support the idea of another season. As far as we know, no decision has been made, except for some leaks that ensure that after the success of the first two episodes, Lucasfilm changed the end of the series and would have given the green light for a second season, so we will have to wait until see what happens.
It’s clear that with the audience asking for more, and Ewan and Hayden excited to reprise their iconic characters. There are still hopes to see a second season, sooner rather than later.
