The Star Wars franchise is in a weird moment following the lukewarm reception for The Rise of Skywalker and the critical acclaim for The Mandalorian, says Julie Alexander. "Disney needs everything to go better than well; it has to be spectacular," she says of the Obi-Wan production delays. "The Mandalorian set a high bar for what a Star Wars show could do in the streaming space. It’s a tough act to follow. What’s obvious from all of these reports is that Star Wars live-action shows are still being figured out." Alexander adds: "Delays are never good signs, but they’re also not inherently negative. If the loudest complaint Disney is hearing about The Rise of Skywalker is that the film felt rushed (which it certainly could have been in an attempt to keep the December 20th, 2019, release date), taking a step back with Obi-Wan is the right move."
