'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Episode 1 and 2 Recap: Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Obi-Wan Kenobi is packed with Star Wars references.

The creators of Obi-Wan Kenobi have done a great job of crafting

a pacey, compelling and above all character-driven adventure

so let's nerd out with a (spoiler-y) deep dive recap of episodes 1 and 2,

including character arcs and Easter eggs (and that dramatic Star Wars cameo).

Ewan McGregor stars as the Jedi general, no longer the callow youth of the prequel movies

but not quite the gray-whiskered old man played by Alec Guinness in the original film back in 1977.

With links to both the prequels and the original trilogy

the show is rich in both Star Wars continuity and intriguing new elements.
