Although it became a hit for Disney Plus, Obi-Wan Kenobi He did not exactly receive the best compliments from the public. Some of the critics agreed that the story took too long to start, and that the series format had probably not benefited it at all. Now, a fan of the saga has taken the liberty of turning Obi-Wan Kenobi in a two and a half hour movie. And the result is now available to be viewed.
Kai Patterson, writer, director, visual effects artist and editor, shared through his Tik Tok account the process to carry it all out (via):
“As I watched the six episodes, I realized how much straw there was, many scenes just added images, maybe to fill the time it was supposed to last. I changed the order of some scenes to make them more meaningful and impactful, and also some moments that I found very annoying. I even added some elements to certain scenes. Music is so important starwarswhich I added tracks new ones at the end, that way the duel is much more exciting.”
If we remember, a similar phenomenon has rarely occurred. Many fans often complain about the official cuts of series or movies, but hardly anyone dares to make their own edition.
The idea of turning Obi-Wan Kenobi on film is not new. In fact, the original idea of Disney is that it be a theatrical release. The story of the film was already planned, there were even deals with actors, directors and writers, but nobody imagined that the worst enemy of the franchise would be Han Solo. After the tremendous failure of Han Solo: A Star Wars Storyall canceled spin off that were planned.
It was in 2019 that Disney decided to continue with this project in series format, although we could barely see it a few weeks ago.
