I am sure obi wan will be torn down and made irrelevant by a mary sue.

They tore down the old characters to make the way for Rey, a Mary Sue who can do everything perfectly and defeating anyone, any sith in her way. Its all the rage nowadays, to promote "the message".
New here, eh? So, let me be clear about something: we're not interested in rants about how you hate the 'agenda' or whatever you want to call it. Not only is it mind-numbingly boring, we have a very low tolerance for anti-inclusive behavior. If this is how you're choosing to introducing yourself, you may not last long. Now, time for you to leave this thread, please.

It shouldn't be that confusing for you, look at how Han Solo turned from a General to a bumbling old man

Age and loss are not good to people.

Or how Luke Skywalker turned from a Jedi to a crazy old lonely bitter man, completely out of character.

He set out to remake the Golden Age, and instead his star pupil nephew turned to evil and apparently slaughtered the other students. After that trauma, with that blood on his hands, and stewing for years, crazy and bitter seems quite plausible.

If we ask what you mean by "the message", would we find you in violation of this site's inclusivity policy? If yes, maybe you should walk away from this conversation now, before you say something you end up regretting.

I am wondering how these Inquisitors will tie into the Inquisitors from the Rebels series. That is set about 5 years after when this takes place, unless this show covers more than one set point in the time line. And since Maul is still actively searching for Obi-Wan's location in Rebels, the Inquisitors working for him would have to be different from these, since the ones in this show surviving to go back to Maul would throw off the Rebels time line. But, if this show does move time forward, maybe we see the final Obi-Wan/Maul battle in live-action, which would also mean a first look at a younger version of live-action Ezra Bridger, before the current-time version appears in the Ahsoka show.
The one talking (and shown with the spinning blade) is the Grand Inquisitor. I also spotted the Fifth Brother (with his distinctive hat) in a few shots. I don't recognize the black woman. It's possible she's the Second Sister from Jedi: Fallen Order. Otherwise, I'd assume she's new.

Do we have anything in canon from this time period saying that Maul was leading the inquisitors at this time? He's running Black Sun at the time of Solo, and a renegade hunted by the Inquisitors when we first meet him in Rebels.

Had to go look back up, since it has been a while since I watched Rebels, and yeah, somehow I was remembering that totally backwards and they were hunting him too. I must have somehow swapped him and Vader, since Vader was in the show too.

bro, writing crappy stories destroying other peoples beloved original characters is not "good story writing". Being a naughty word writer has nothing to do with "inclusive". If you think in order to write a new matrix you have to naughty word on Neo, then I'm sorry you are just bad and probably should stick to writing content that leverages other peoples creative work, liking writing more levels for 5e. Good thing you have a forum to promote your books 24x7.

Same here. Or at least it's the chunk of character arc real estate I most want to see developed combined with an actor I really want to see return to a role. The necessities of wrapping up Episode III in a way that set everything where it was at the opening of Episode IV left us with the impression that Kenobi went straight from Jedi Warrior in his prime who jet sets around the galaxy and regularly solos whole rooms of enemies with a devil-may-care gleam in his eye to desert hermit-monk who's only mission is 20 years of vaguely keeping an eye on a kid who never meets him. You have to assume he got out and stretched his legs with some adventure off and on during that time, but the movies leave no real sense of what that may look like.
Agreed, a lot of time that isn't well filled in other than he apparently
kills maul real quick
. I'm guessing they won't do some big team up thing since that's Mando's schtick. Keeping it as a lone jedi against the bad guys would work for me. Probably a couple side characters that he interacts with for exposition, character growth, moving the plot along is all I need. Or let the bad guys do a lot of the heavy lifting. They looked pretty awesome from the few bits of trailer we saw.

The trailer looks awesome! More than two months away, sigh...

I'd be interested in seeing more about the Inquisitors, since they were largely destroyed by the end of season 2 of SW:Rebels. And I'd love to see Liam Neeson as the surprise cameo of the series. (Although I suppose Grogu could cameo as well...)

Qui-Gon would have to be in a flashback or as a Force ghost. Yoda is a possibility, if Obi-Wan does travel off-planet and knows his location. Another question is which other Jedi are still alive roughly 10 years after Order 66, since it has been stated somewhere that this series is set around halfway between the prequel and original trilogies. After all, no way we are not going to see the Inquisitors fighting Jedi other than Obi-Wan.

Looks good I can't see any Inquisitor being a true threat to Obi Wan though as he has chopped his way through two Sith Lords by this point.

Still add 500 stormtroopers of the 501st fixes that. Inquisitors look cool new one looks like a bad ass.

Well, we know Anakin is in it, and he is "dead" at this point.

My theory is at some point Kenobi will snort some lizard (see The Book of Boba Fett) and go on a vision-quest. And that is where he will meet Anakin, Vader, and possibly Maul and Qui-Gon.

They are not a direct threat. The danger is they might stumble over Luke whilst pursuing someone on Tatooine. If, say, they where to pursue a fleeing jedi youngling to Tatooine, Kenobi might have to leave to lure them away.

Maul is hostile to the Empire and running Crimson Dawn in 10 BBY (Solo). By 4 BBY he seems to have been removed (by Qi'ra or Kenobi?) and is grubbing around in Sith ruins on Malachor (Rebels). Around 3 BBY he tracks down Kenobi to Tatooine and is killed (Rebels). Vader leads the inquisitors (Rebels, J:FO).

J:FO is stet around 14 BBY. Judging by the age of Luke in the trailer (9 or 10?), Kenobi takes place later than that, but before Rebels.

She isn't very like. I managed to track down a helmetless J:FO shot, she is olive skinned with straight hair.

I'm pretty sure I recognise the actor (in the trailer) actually. I think she's British (unsurprising for an Imperial). Can't get the name though. Isn't on the announced cast list.

Second Sister is a title, not a name though, so it could be a different person in the same job. Trilla should be dead at this point anyway.

First time I'm cautiously excited for anything Star Wars since watching the original movies.
Full disclosure I have not seen 7-9, Solo or the Mando.
