The girl they have playing Leia is great, but there’s literally no acting chemistry between him and anyone else on screen. I can see it in Ewan’s eyes, “Jesus, not this **** again”.
I will still watch this show out of obligation but so far I think it’s horrible, and I say that as someone who is generally an apologist for the sequel trilogy. The Mandalorian is the new gold standard for tone that Star Wars should be carrying forward from now on, and this is just not the same thing.
I'm not the best one to ask, because I generally love everything with Star Wars but to me this is right there with Mando. I have really enjoyed this show. The kid actor is like most kid actors, just not that good. That said, Kenobi needed something to get him out of the cave and there wasn't much that was going to do it.
BTW I love the sequel trilogy until we get to Rise.
