Earlier right this moment we spoke to Obi-Wan Kenobi director Deborah Chow. Now, within the trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi we see a droid who appears to be like an terrible lot like 4-LOM from The Empire Strikes Again. (He’s one of many bounty hunters Darth Vader assembles to hunt for the Millennium Falcon. Boba Fett ultimately completes this process.) Within the trailer, we see this droid capturing at Obi-Wan. I point out this scene from the trailer to Chow, then appropriate myself as a result of to today I don’t know if it’s pronounced 4 Lom or 4 El Oh Em.
Chow says, “It’s really 4 Lom.” However then continues, “However that’s not really 4-LOM although, it’s really a special droid named One Jack. Everybody thinks it’s 4-LOM.” (Poor 4-LOM. Within the Nineteen Eighties his motion determine mistakenly stated Zuckuss, so everybody known as him Zuckuss for 20 years. Now this.)
I then level out that our new Star Wars character One Jack positive appears to be like like 4-LOM and Chow responds, “It’s related.” After which factors out I’m the primary particular person to carry up 4-LOM on this press tour. (For anybody who is aware of me personally, it will most likely not shock you that I introduced up 4-LOM.) This feels just like IG-11 in The Mandalorian who everybody thought (together with me) was IG-88.
So I requested what’s One Jack’s deal? (I don’t know the way One Jack is spelled, so it might be 1-Jack? Or 1-JAK?) Is he additionally a bounty hunter, like 4-LOM? Chow gained’t go fairly this far with data, “For that you’re going to have to attend and see.” I do point out that he appears to be like like dangerous information, Chow laughs, “They often are.”
Anyway, sure, we’ll study extra about Obi-Wan Kenobi and our new buddy One Jack (1-Jack?) when the sequence premieres subsequent week on Could 27. We may even have extra from Deborah Chow subsequent week as properly.
