Spoiler Alert: Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+

It’s no secret that even with the vast history of movies and television shows made over the last hundred years, none of them have ever been perfect. No matter how good or bad a movie or tv show might be, there will always be somebody who feels the opposite way and will find arguments to support their feelings. That’s just the byproduct of anything from the entertainment or creative world — people will have differing opinions.

One such franchise that has embodied this is Star Wars, a universe that arguably reached the peak of its success back in 1977 and 1980 with the release of A New Hope

and The Empire Strikes Back. But then again, plenty of people would argue that we’re currently living in the era of Star Wars’ peak success due to the acclaim that the Disney+ shows have gotten recently.

Whatever the case may be, Star Wars is a franchise that will always be met with criticism and scrutiny due to the loyalty and passion of its fan base. The most recent victim of such judgment is Third Sister Reva (Moses Ingram) from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The Jedi-hunting Inquisitor has gotten more flack than anything else on the show, and while faults can be found in any performance, is it fair for the character to be met with such backlash?

So what’s the main issue with the character? In all honesty, only a few minor tweaks. Moses Ingram, who plays Third Sister, is phenomenal and is making the best out of the situation that she’s been put in. That being said, the character she has been asked to play is somebody that no actress could bring to life for the screen because the character lacks depth.

Every scene that Reva appears in goes exactly the same way. She butts heads with anyone she comes in contact with and makes a point of rubbing people the wrong way. In short, characters need to be relatable and likable (even villains), and Reva isn’t. If the audience doesn’t connect to the villain on a personal level, her rage-induced antics are just seen as temper tantrums by an adult instead of justifiable inner pain.
