The Star Wars universe, not unlike the Marvel universe -- and the actual universe, for that matter -- is an ever-expanding behemoth overflowing with countless epic stories that are just dying to be told. Yes, television properties like The Clone Wars and Rebels have been exploring various aspects of and characters in the #Vaderverse for over a decade now, but it wasn't until the live action TV seal was finally broken by The Mandalorian that we really began to see what was truly possible outside the realm of feature film productions. As great as it was learning more about Mando and Grogu, or seeing what Boba Fett was up to after crawling out of that sarlac pit, we all know the big money tends to follow the Skywalkers. That family's saga has been the meat and potatoes behind this whole thing since the beginning, way back in 1977, and now, not unlike the way The Clone Wars filled in more than a few gaps between films, the long-awaited Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+ is doing the same -- and it's doing so in spectacular fashion.
