The series has received positive reviews from critics, with praise for McGregor and Christensen's performances and Chow's direction, but some criticism of the writing.



Daniel (Age 12) - ★★★★1/2

"Obi-Wan Kenobi was great. It has a bunch of lines that fans have been waiting for years for the cast to say. It also was really cool to see (SPOILERS!) flashbacks with Hayden Christiansen and Ewan McGregor back together again. Darth Vader looked amazing in this series with that same intimidating appearance he had in the original trilogy. Some parts of Reva's storyline didn't make sense, for example how does someone get stabbed in the same place twice and survive both times? Anyway apart from that the whole show was good with great action. "
