The worst action scene from ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ can’t escape the wrath of furious ‘Star Wars’ supporters

Every conversation goes on and on, apparently.

When it comes to Star Wars, there is always a lot to say. To this day, fans are continuously debating the work of Rian Johnson in the series, with a collection of supporters now in agreement that a certain part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries may have the franchise’s worst action scene to date.

A post on Reddit, with more than 90 comments as of this story’s filing, argues several specific sequences in the show, especially where young Leia runs from something chasing her, are just dreadful and not well-directed. The conversation initiator says it might just be an example of showrunner Deborah Chow having a bad day at the office, but, for some, there is worse in the project that constantly generates disdain.

Another user insists that’s it’s not so much Chow’s fault, as it is an overuse of technology. In their view, the project faced similar issues that George Lucas did when making the prequel trilogy. As a result, actors had to limit themselves in confined spaces, and, as Andor has shown, things ultimately go better when you create an actual set for people to go and stretch themselves creatively within.

Other comments in the thread (in a surprisingly self-aware way for Star Wars fans), express disdain for the same thing being brought up once again. Another user adds the experience felt like the director was defecating in his face and those of other viewers and, for one, the experience is actually close to reality if you have ever had to work with upset children like they allegedly have.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has six episodes and is available to watch (and complain about) on Disney Plus.
