Why ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Was Better Than ‘Book of Boba Fett’
Obi-Wan Kenobi is done after its six episodes on Disney+, and we thought it was a much more enjoyable experience than the last Star Wars TV show on streaming, The Book of Boba Fett. And if you put the shows side by side and compare them, one big difference between the two leaps out at you: The use of flashbacks. They make all the difference between a really successful show, and a really frustrating one.
In our latest Star Wars video, we explore the flashbacks in both The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and show why flashbacks made one show better and nearly ruined the other. We break down each flashback and how they are used in their respective shows. We show how the Obi-Wan Kenobi flashbacks perfectly underline and explain events that are happening in the show’s present, and how the Book of Boba Fett’s flashbacks undermined its larger story, instead of enhancing it. Take a look below:
