    I've been saying for a long while now that a book or animated movie that chonicles Obi-Wan's life between ROTS and ANH was my most wanted thing from the EU, looks like I'm gonna get what I want! :D

    This sounds great. It's about time we got a book about this part of Kenobi's story.

    I hope it doesn't retcon Jude Watson's YA books.

    She actually made me like Obi-Wan more than the movies ever did.

    OOh I must read this, as I'm sure Qui Gon will feature as well as he learned thevsecret to Immortality and I am sure he has a bit more to teach his former padawan :D. And, this just seems like it will be awesome

    I'm definitely hoping that Qui-Gon teaching Obi-Wan how to become a Force Ghost is part of the novel.

    They touch that a bit in the Last of the Jedi series, but i do hope it's expanded in this book. That would be awesome.

    Me too, that'd be really great part of the book if it's featured. Obi-Wan is a very different Jedi/man now than when he was Qui-Gon's apprentice. I'd love to know what Qui-Gon thinks of what happened to Anakin, and how he feels about all of that. Would Qui-Gon still believe that Anakin is the chosen one? There's just so many ways they could go with featuring Qui-Gon in the book teaching Obi-Wan.

    This book has so much potential, but I truly dislike JJ Miller's writing. I know I'll be at my local shop buying this the day it comes out, so I'll only have myself to blame for not waiting for paperback (if it's no good, of course!).

    Yeah, i agree. He just looks like he's gone through hell and back doesnt he? Those Tatooine years can be quite interesting if writen right. I dont see him just sitting in a hutt meditating. His inner turmoil must have reached peak levels after ROTS. How one goes from that to the jedi we see in ANH is something i'm very intrigued by. Kenobi rocks! :woot:

    Poor Obi, he has been through so much. Lost so much, and yet still remains one of the coolest characters ever.

    Well, ANH ObiWan is 58 years old or so. Nevermind that he looks 70. So, he must've been though a lot in dat heat.

    Kenobi now has an official synopsis and cover as well as a new release date of August 27th.

    Interesting that they used Ewan for the cover, I hope that might be an indication that this could be in line to be adapted into a stand-alone Obi-Wan movie.
