    Perhaps adapt that EU story with the rough Jedi turned Tusken raider.

    While my personal Star Wars aesthetic preferences are resistant to this, the established canon of young adult Anakin appearing to Luke at the end of ROTJ dictates this is possible. Further there has been at least one instance during which Qui-Gon's post death form was visible, but this seems to have occurred outside of normal spacetime, so...

    For me, the reason Obi Wan is my favorite Star Wars character is because despite all the pain and all the agony he goes through, he remains strong and at becomes what I believe is the most typical Jedi you'll see. Obi Wan is somebody who at this point has lost everything. He lost his master, the person he loved, and his apprentice who he saw as his own brother, and pretty much everyone he ever knew either died or turned evil. I really hope the show focuses on the pain he is going throught at this time, and how he overcomes it. Probably ram the tragedy of it in further with flashbacks. I'm guessing we'll see him training with force ghost Qui Gon, which I can't wait to see.

    I've probably said this before but I really want to see a live action version of twin suns too. A lot of you may be thinking why I need a live action version when we have one in animation. It's not because I just want to see the action in live action, but mostly because of the reasons above. Maul played a large part in Kenobi's agony, killing both Qui Gon and Satine. Twin suns in rebels shows us Maul's story. We see how he is no longer his former self, having lost everything much like Kenobi and all that remains is now his rage. He is pretty much the dark side version of Kenobi. But what I was coming to say is that we never see Kenobi's side, what lead into that moment. Prequels Obi Wan would have just straight up attacked Maul, either killed him straight away, disarmed him or maybe have even slipped up and gotten killed himself. But what we see instead is a much more calm and collected Kenobi, not the man he once was. He chooses not to fight, and only does so when he sees there is no other way to protect Luke. After defeating Maul, instead of leaving him to die like he previously would, he holds him in his arms the same way he held both Qui Gon and Satine (maybe show this in the flashbacks), which makes it one of my favorite parts in all of Star Wars. What I want to know is how did Kenobi get here, what happened to the Kenobi that once was? How did he overcome all his pain. What gave him reason to continue to believe in his destroyed Jedi Order, and in this new hope, Luke/Leia. And as the show finishes explaining this, we get the climax for the episode (not the series), the live action Twin Suns (but only the battle and the end).

    Then let the show explore whatever else it intends to, maybe more with Anakin/Vader specifically and Owen and Beru. But one last thing I'd like to see is maybe a small time jump to the end of ROTJ. I just hope they give the show some kind of happy ending. Just give force ghost Obi Wan the taste of happiness and success that he hasn't had in decades. Just him realising that it all paid off, that it wasn't for nothing. Now, I don't exactly know how force ghosts work, but I'd really love to see something play along like this: Just before the celebration scene we get in ROTJ, force ghost Obi Wan is watching the celebrations with Yoda. To his side pops up force ghost Anakin. Obi Wan tells him, Anakin, I failed you. And Anakin puts a force arm around Obi Wan and says you never failed me. You are my brother Obi Wan, I love you (like in ROTS) And a single tear of joy runs down the face of an old man who has never felt it in decades and tried to surpress his emotions his entire life.

    Whatever happens I know I'll love this show and can't wait for it to release.

    A story where he becomes an artifact collector and has Indiana Jones-like adventures on Tattoine.

    If Obi-Wan stays on Tattooine, then I think that they will have to get creative with some of the places that they create, because sandy deserts or ravines week after week might get boring. It's a whole massive planet, so hopefully they might be able to show some different envirornments and towns.

    I want to see Obi-Wan go to the mini-mart. I want to see Obi-Wan enjoy a drink or two at the bar/cantina. Having poker nights with Jawas.

    I want to have Kenobi visit Alderan and Naboo. Visit Bail and little Leia, and sees Padme's grave.

    There can be an episode where Obi-Wan Kenobi helps Dex open a new diner on Tattooine. This could start a brand war over who has the rights to sell Jawa Juice [face_laugh][face_laugh][face_laugh]

    Definitely going for a drink. Not Trainspotting-level drinking, but surely Ewen would want to leave this mark!

    No. He will drink so hard that he climbs into a refresher after a deathstick.

    It just occured to me that the title I would want is:

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Descent into Hell

    Which would mean Mustafar but hell sounds better.

    Yes - A'Sharad Hett aka Darth Krayt - Love it.

    He put himself into a stasis and awoke decades later to lead a new group of darkside users.

    Could be awesome for a SST villian.

    I fully support this.

    I don't think they will do 6 episodes without space travel and possibly space fighting too.

    So I hope he doesn't stay on Tatooine for the entire show, I don't know how interesting that would be.

    Ben will get so blotto he sneaks in and steals moisture from Owen and Beru, then uses it to make Anakin sand figures outside their moisture farm.
