We may be beating a dead horse by this point, but Obi-Wan Kenobi fighting Darth Maul in this year’s Star Wars Rebels was absolutely perfect. It’s so perfect, in fact, it makes me question the entire idea of a solo Obi-Wan movie which, of course, is now in development.
Case in point: this new video from the Star Wars Rebels season three Blu-ray, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. It shows how producer and writer Dave Filoni not only used film history to create the battle, but also how the battle was almost an evolution of Obi-Wan in three different poses. There’s so much going on here it’s crazy.
We exclusively spoke to Filoni about this scene earlier this year and you can read that below. There’s lots of additional info in the interview.
And if you haven’t seen this episode, you can catch it when the Rebels season three Blu-ray is released August 29. You will not regret it.
