‘Rematch Of The Century’ Is About To Happen In Final Episode Of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Not long to wait until the sixth and final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi where fans will finally get to watch the anticipated 'rematch of the century'.

In case you missed it, the creators of the Star Wars spin-off show promised an epic showdown between the titular Jedi and his foe Anakin Skywalker, aka Darth Vader, much like their battle on the fiery planet Mustafar in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have both reprised their respective roles for the series, which is set 10 years after the events of the 2005 film.

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy said last year that the pair will meet again for the 'rematch of the century', and to get everyone aboard the hype train, Christensen himself confirmed the fight will go down in the final episode which drops on Disney+ next week.

In a clip shared on Star Wars UK's Twitter account, the Anakin star said: "I wanted to thank each and every one of you for all of your support and excitement for my return in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

"I can't wait for you guys to witness the rematch of the century. This is where the fun begins."

It'll come as no surprise that the fans are excited, with one responding to the post: "Oh god Wednesday is too far away."

Another said: "We love you Hayden. Thank you so much for coming back. It’s been amazing to see you back as Anakin. Here’s to the finale and the rematch we’ve been waiting for."

"CHILLS FROM HEAD TO TOE," added a third. "Did.. did he really just say those words?! I’m not imagining this? He really said that? Oooooooooooo I’m ready!"

There were also plenty of comments from people delighted to see Christensen and McGregor with lightsabers in their hands once more.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has been providing ultimate fan service left, right and centre and it appears they're set to pull out all the stops with the grande finale.

The series has been described as 'perfect' by viewers so far, following the titular character as he watches over a young Luke Skywalker (Grant Feely) while evading the Empire's elite Jedi hunters during his exile on the desert planet Tatooine.

When the first two episodes dropped on the streaming service on 27 May, it didn't take long for people to rave about the show online, with one writing: “It is perfect. Plot, casting, acting, visuals, pacing, direction, music, Ewan McGregor."

The first five episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are available to watch on Disney+ now, with the sixth and final episode of season one dropping on 22 June.
