5 Things to Read and Watch Before Obi-Wan Kenobi

With under three months until the release of Obi-Wan Kenobi, we still aren't sure of all what to expect as we await a trailer. Regardless, there is plenty of Obi-Wan content to look at beforehand beyond the movies he appears in. Like, a ton! If you want an abbreviated list of some important Obi-Wan stuff outside of the movies, come no further! Here's your essential read and watchlist for before Obi-Wan arrives with his own show to Disney+ on May 25th.

Master & Apprentice

I think this book is really, really important for providing context for not only Obi-Wan's relationship with his master Qui-Gon Jinn, but also for who he is as a character. In this book we get a look inside of young Obi-Wan's head, and his early relationship to the Jedi Order and the Force.

"The Mandalore Plot"/"Voyage of Temptation"/"Duchess of Mandalore"

Obi-Wan is in a lot of The Clone Wars, like a LOT! So, I narrowed down to just a couple of episodes that I think are extra important for him. In this trilogy of episodes, we meet Satine and get a look at Obi-Wan on very personal missions of his own, and his history of a not totally Jedi-approved relationship with the Mandalorian duchess.

Mortis Arc

While the Mortis arc is undoubtedly more about Anakin, I think that there's a lot of big stuff for Obi-Wan too. He gets to talk to literal Force gods, he sees Anakin turn to the dark side for the first time, and has a talk with an apparition of his deceased master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

"The Lawless" Arc

As a dark follow up to our earlier episodes with Satine, Obi-Wan returns to Mandalore and faces Maul. Unfortunately, he loses Satine in these episodes. These are tragic episodes, but also ones that I think are incredibly defining for him as a character and his story.

Unfinished Utapau Arc

While not part of the regular The Clone Wars episodes you'll find on Disney+, these unfinished ones find Obi-Wan and Anakin on a mission to Utapau. The first episode has him and Anakin talking about Ahsoka leaving the Jedi Order, which is an interesting conversation itself, and is overall a good adventure with the former master-padawan pair that doesn't get enough attention.
