I haven't seen any of Disney Star Wars movies or shows since TFA but was always intrigued by this project due to the returning OG prequel actors, and due to the gap between III and IV being so interesting and full of possibilities, and until now was pretty much untouched. I haven't really looked much into what the reception for this is at all, as TFA proved none of it can be trusted. To those who have seen it, how is it? Does it feel like something that would fit into George Lucas' canon or does it feel like more fan fiction like the sequel trilogy?

I’m really enjoying it. I’m not really a big SW fan to begin with, but I’ve been enjoying the Disney Plus shows. The young girl who they cast as 10yr old Leia is very good. She’s really a scene stealer. Her scenes with Obi-Wan range from funny to heart warming.
Ive enjoyed it overall. It sufficiently expands the relationship and fallout between Anakin and Obiwan, bridging the gap from the prequel trilogy to the original trilogy...and explores Kenobis ptsd and regrets as well as Vaders rage and anger toward Kenobi. Theres other stuff too but that's the highlight for me through 5 episodes.
I guess I understand why Obi-Wan let Vader live — again — but did he learn nothing from letting him live after Revenge of the Sith? Why not finish the job this time, specially after Vader said he’d kill him?
Was something wrong with Ian McDiarmid? Dude couldn’t keep his eyes open during his scene.
Next to no mention of Padme, and none at all to Vader.
Was really hoping for more interaction between Obi and Luke, not just “Hello there.”
Was nice to see Liam Neeson return, especially since he said he doesn’t really do TV.
Overall, I’ll watch season 2 if it gets made, I liked the show enough, but this didn’t leave me wanting more. Not sure it’s really necessary anyhow.
