In particular, the big thing we’re left to thinking about here is if there’s any more story involving “Ben” and Princess Leia; is this going to be the final time the two see each other?

The reason why we pose this question is because there are plenty of people out there who want to see a season 2 of the series. However, there are some pretty obvious why Leia and Obi-Wan’s story needs to be wrapped up. We saw during A New Hope that Leia spoke about Obi-Wan in a pretty formal way, which makes us think that there is at least some emotional distance between the two of them. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they can’t have seen each other again; it’s possible that she may be speaking formally just in case other people stumble upon it. However, the more time the two spend together, the harder it will be to believe the canon of the Original Trilogy.
We’ve loved getting to spend more time embracing the Skywalker origin story for A New Hope this season, but it also feels like this may need to be it. Absolutely there could be another season of this show, but it’d have to be a totally new kind of story. Obi-Wan does have a life beyond Luke, Leia, and Anakin; why not spend some time diving a little more into that? It’d be nice to get a totally new and surprising adventure.
Do you think the Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1 finale is the end for the Leia – Obi-Wan story?
