KENOBI acts as a precursor to A New Hope, with Obi-Wan watching over a young Luke Skywalker.
The Last Jedi, the final episode of the third Star Wars trilogy, is in cinemas now. But long-time fans still love those in-between movies. Even though Solo wasn’t the success Disney had hoped for, Rogue One was and now there’s a new movie in the Star Wars cinematic universe. Except this one is fan-made.
KENOBI is the creation of Jamie Costa and it tells of the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi living in cave in Tatooine as he watches over Luke Skywalker during his formative years. It’s only 15 minutes long but enough to whet your appetite for Star Wars what-ifs.
Who is Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Master who acted as a mentor to Anakin Skywalker, who later became Darth Vader, and his son, Luke Skywalker. He was originally under the tutelage of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace.
Costa also played Han Solo in another fan film called Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade, 2 years before the release of Solo. He’s clearly one step ahead of Disney. The film also stars James Arnold Taylor who voiced Obi-Wan in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
