Obi-Wan’s past on Mandalore creates an opportunity to reveal more of the Mandalorian history that has become central to Din Djarin’s story.
The next Disney+ Obi Wan Kenobi could lay the groundwork for The Mandalorian season 3. Boba Fett’s Book recently played such a role also in its last three episodes by deepening the storyline of Din Djarin and Grogu. Obi Wan Kenobi takes place years earlier, but the series could providing world-building and lore integral to driving the plot The Mandalorian.
Din Djarin’s current tale is not only about his relationship with Grogu, but also his place in Mandalorian history as the current owner of the Darksaber. The Darksaber, if won in battle, makes its wielder the Mand’alor, ruler of all Mandalorians. This puts Mando in direct conflict with Bo-Katan Kryze, who once ruled Mandalore with the Darksaber. Since she lost the blade and the planet, she wants the weapon and her throne back. In Boba Fett’s Book, the Armorer tells Mando that by claiming the throne even though the Darksaber was given to him, and not won in battle, Bo-Katan has cursed the planet: beneath it, Mandalore has been destroyed by the Empire. Mando’s sect, The Children Of The Watch, only survived because they were sequestered on a Mandalore moon called Concordia. The Armorer also reveals that Mand’alor Tarre Vizsla, creator of the Darksaber, was both Mandalorian and Jedi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi has a huge advantage over Disney+’s other Star Wars shows
Unfortunately, there are still many crucial holes in the Armorer’s story. However, Ewan McGregor hinted at the presence of flashbacks in the Obi-Wan series. Because Obi-Wan spent so much of his time among the Mandalorians during the Clone Wars, his series provides an opportunity to reveal more of the Mandalorian history that became one of the foundations of Din’s journey. As a result, Obi Wan Kenobi can reveal several key details that could turn out to be crucial in The Mandalorian season 3.
Obi-Wan spends time before and during The Clone Wars on Mandalore, even falling in love with its ruler, Duchess Satine Kryze, Bo-Katan’s sister. He witnesses and participates in many pivotal events in Mandalorian history that affect the plot of The Mandalorian. One of them is the conflict between Satine and The Death Watch, shown in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Satine seeks to remove the Mandalorian warrior culture and create a pacifist society on Mandalore, while the Death Watch believe in the old ways of warfare and want to overthrow Satine. She exiles them to Concordia, where the Armorer said the Children of the Watch were during the Purge. This hints that they may be descendants of the Death Watch. Currently, there is no concrete story for the children of The Watch, and Mando himself doesn’t seem to know his story. However, since Obi-Wan’s past is tied to Mandalore’s, flashbacks occur after the events of The Clone Wars could show how the cult started, and why they stayed on Concordia.
Since Obi-Wan is a Jedi and has fought with Mandalorians against Mandalorians, the series could also explore the relationship between Mandalorians and Jedi – another source of unresolved tension in The Mandalorian. The Armorer also condemns not only Bo-Katan, but his entire family –“a mighty house” this “lost sight of the way.” The Mandalorian does not reveal how House Kryze broke the Mandalorian Creed. So far, it’s only shown the Sins of Bo-Katan, while Satine just as badly loses sight of the way by turning her back on all Mandalorian lore. Since Obi-Wan visits Satine and fights with her against the Death Watch, his series has the opportunity to show Mandalore under Satine’s rule – a point in the planet’s history so far only shown. in The Clone Wars. The striking contrast between the Satine regime and this The Mandalorian portrayed as “Mandalorian culture” would further raise the stakes of the conflict over what it means to be a Mandalorian – an issue that has haunted the series since its inception and continues to grow more complicated. Obi Wan Kenobi could therefore potentially not only develop part of the plot for The Mandalorian season 3, but also its key themes and emotional conflicts.
