Obi-Wan Kenobi Writer Says Reva Was Originally Destined To Die

The recent Obi Wan Kenobi The series on Disney Plus was a very “mixed” series, reviving reviews from critics and fans alike. The series seemed to focus less on the ancient Jedi master in his mission to protect young Luke Skywalker and instead set up future projects.

Not only does lead actor Ewan McGregor and Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy want a second season, but also actor Hayden Christensen saying he wants a Darth Vader spinoff series as well as rumors that Reva’s character (played by: Moses Ingram) would receive her. own spin-off series.

Shortly before the series was released on Disney Plus, a number of leaks emerged about the series. But one detail that ended up not happening was Vader killing Reva in rage for lying to him.

Well, it looks like the details were actually accurate…at least initially, as the show’s original writer, Stuart Beattie, stated in a recent interview that Reva was indeed going to be killed off:

Yeah, killed by Vader at the end. Yeah, I wanted this story, I wanted his story to end. I wanted Reva to play her role in the Kenobi-Vader story, which was, basically, in the end, she was the one who allowed Vader, basically told Vader to stop chasing Kenobi. You know, she ended Vader’s obsession with Kenobi. She pretended it was over, it’s over. So that was his role to play. And she had done so many terrible things, I felt she had to die. You can’t redeem that much.

Reva was probably kept alive because Lucasfilm wants to make as many spinoff shows as possible; So taking this character who once hijacked the Kenobi show and giving him his own show feels very Kennedy-Era Lucasfilm.

What do you think? Should Reva have died in the end or do you want her to have her own spinoff show?
