“The series veers away from the expected unseen mentorship of Obi-Wan to young Luke, who’s glimpsed only from a distance and thankfully not played by a shrunken and de-aged Mark Hamill Actobot 3000. Instead, it looks toward Alderaan, where a 10-year-old Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) is already rebelling against her adopted parents, complete with her own sidekick droid, a nonspeaking Batteries Not Included–looking contraption called Lola. She’s soon kidnapped and taken off-planet for the first time in what turns out to be an attempt to lure Obi-Wan out of hiding.” — Jesse Hassenger “Obi-Wan Kenobi Premiere Recap: Our Only Hope
