Obi-Wan saving Owen's bar from review bombing by bringing back outfashioned dance moves is such a better use of six episodes than what we got.

Auralnauts have now finished the Larry series with episode 7. I haven't watched the original but love the parody. It stands up as a story in its own right, with some great call-backs to the film reimaginings, and is surprisingly emotional.

I don't mean this as a takedown at all but the ages of the actors playing Obi-Wan should not be taken into consideration at all. Who knows if Obi-Wan was even supposed to be 62 in A New Hope. At the time in 1977 he may have looked like your average 55-year-old. To modern audiences he looks more like a 75 year-old man. And McGregor could realistically pass for a 45-year-old today. Who knows, with the right diet, physical exercise and... luck, maybe in 20 years he'll still look like a man in his early fifties.

And that's also assuming one season of the show equals one year in-universe.

Anyway, if Disney wants to milk the cow dry, they can release three decades' worth of Obi-Wan TV series and then some. And when McGregor bites the dust, asks for too much to come back or quits, whatever happens first, they'll just replace him with a Deep Fake McGregor.

There's going to come a day when technology will render actors obsolete.
