Star Wars Fans Start Petition To "Fix" Returning 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Character

Star Wars fans are having another completely normal one over a small detail that really doesn't matter all that much in the grand scheme of things.


Last night, we finally got our first look at the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus miniseries, and it looks fantastic. Ewan McGregor is back as the Jedi Knight, of course. Even better, he'll come face-to-face with the Inquistors, a group of high-ranking members of Empire who specialise in hunting (and killing) any remaining Jedi in the galaxy.

Take a look at the trailer below!



There's clearly a lot here for hardcore Star Wars fans to get excited about. The Inquisitors are a huge part of Star Wars lore, and a part that hasn't ever really been explored in live-action - until now.

Viewers of the excellent Star Wars Rebels animated series will have noted that The Grand Inquisitor - the group's terrifying leader - is one of the familiar faces set to make their live-action debut. Unfortunately, some fans don't seem too happy with his new look.

There are some undeniable differences. The animated Grand Inquisitor is a little more gaunt and serpent-like. While still imposing, the live-action version looks just a little bit more... human.


While most of us are probably happy to accept it's not quite as good and move on with our lives, there is already a petition calling on Disney to "fix" the character before Obi-Wan Kenobi releases in May.

"In 2005's Revenge Of The Sith, The Race of the grand inquisitor, the Pau'an, was perfectly executed," reads the Change.org petition. "However in the upcoming Disney Plus show, they have opted to forgo any real prosthetics and portray the Grand Inquisitor as a human-like figure with a round head. Completely unlike the rest of his race or his animation counterpart. 

"I am begging Lucasfilm and Disney to rectify this tremendous oversight for the continuity of the franchise and the crucial atheistic to this menacing character."


At the time of writing, the petition has 23 signatures. So... maybe don't hold your breath.
