I don't mind the look of the Grand Inquisitor in Kenobi, although I can understand people not liking it.  Hell, look at Jabba the Hutt in Rebels...they made him look just like Ezra!

Apparently, the rest of the episodes will premier on Wednesdays.
This is the way.

It's mostly a minor thing for me. I loved his look in Rebels. I am ok with animated styles not translating 1:1 to live action, and I really wouldn't have cared at all had we not already seen a Pau'an in live action.



Overall though, I can't wait for the show and am really glad we get to see some live action Inquisitors. It's especially cool that Jason Isaacs gets to play him again in live action.

Obi-Wan Kenobi | Official Trailer | Disney+

That looks sweet! 

I'm worried as I've got high expectations for this.  I sure hope it delivers.

YES!  I was wondering when people were going to catch that.

I think most people might have focused on the interaction between Obi-Wan and Owen Lars or the obvious bit at the end.  But that droid bounty hunter was a pleasant surprise!

Beyond that?  It was good to see Kumail Nanjani in the trailer.  "Silicon Valley" was where I saw him first, and he was pretty good in "Eternals".  I'm wondering who his character is.

On the subject of characters like 4-LOM showing up in the trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi, there have been rumors of other bounty hunters turning up in the Disney+ series.  Several of those seem obvious.  Some chatter seems to revolve around one of the most well known bounty hunters.

But I was actually wondering about some Clone Wars era characters who have the potential for showing up.  Some people have theorized that Commander Cody could turn up.  I was actually wondering about a Clone Wars era bounty hunter - Embo.  He has actually turned up in some of the new canon novels.  And I know that he's a favorite of Dave Filoni, who seems to have a hand in the series.

I could see Cad Bane possibly showing up since he has already made an appearance in the Book.  Would it be cool to see the other BHs from the Executor scene?  Of course... but knowing that the Obi-Wan series takes place before Empire, their scenes (if they face off with Obi-Wan) wouldn't have the same gravity since we know both parties would ultimately survive any confrontation.  I think it would definitely work if we saw the Bounty Hunters joining the Inquisitors in capturing/taking down other Jedi.

I'm really looking forward to the series starting on Friday.

A few backstory items I hope they don't cover in detail in the Kenobi series:
- How Obi-Wan Kenobi picked up the moniker "Ben"
- How Kenobi spent years living with the Tusken Raiders learning how to howl like a Krayt Dragon
- How he formed a friendship with a brightly colored speeder bike gang

As long as it isn't as bad as how Han got "Solo".

Sorry Dave, I got a look at the synopses for each episode -

Ep1 -3: Obi-Wan lives with the Tusken while Inquisitors search for him
Ep4: Obi-Wan saves victim of a Tusken attack, takes him for help/mod parts, encourages him to start a colorful Cyborg kid speeder gang in Mos Espa after his recovery
Ep5: The Mandalorian shows up to warn Obi-Wan about Inquisitors and accidentally names him - "you've BEN a good friend, Obi-Wan"
Ep6: Obi-Wan vs Vader

Nice. 

One more I forgot to add - I really hope there isn't an important (or stupid) plot point where Kenobi needs to learn how to ride a new, large, strange beast.  That seems to be a common thread recently and its totally stupid.  Why don't people just ride speeder bikes everywhere?  I like E3 where Kenobi jumps on a Boga and just hauls ass without any buildup in to the why or how.

I do however hope that Kenobi goes in to a Tatooine cantina where Max Reebo is playing.

One thing I really do hope this series explores is Obi-Wan dealing with PTSD and the loss of the Jedi Order.

I think they have a great opportunity to cover this subject....especially because of the suicide rate among veterans.
