After a long wait, Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally arrived on Disney+. Yet, the opening sequence had some a bit nervous as it surprised many with a rather dark return to Order 66. The entire sequence saw a group of younglings flee the attack of the Clone Troopers. Given recent events, the episode may have been ill-timed as the United States faced another tragedy just recently. So, the lack of a warning was a rather curious oversight going into the series, which has now been corrected by Disney+.
Yet, the message only arrives under a note in the “details” area and is not available through all Disney+ accounts. It also doesn’t appear onscreen before the episode airs, which is a curious decision. They may have added the text after some people pointed it out online.
Although this fictional series is a continuation of the story from Star Wars movies filmed many years ago, some scenes may be upsetting to viewers in light of the recent tragic events. Warning: Contains violence involving children.
Stranger Things has included a message ahead of its latest episode premiere, which also includes children being killed. While the opening scene in Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn’t have any blaster shots hitting children, it still hits too close to those that are going through the tragedy that happened in Texas. So, here’s hoping they add it in earlier on to let people know before watching it.
