From Star Wars Explained: “I’ve seen some people worried that certain lines and moments from ‘A New Hope’ would no longer make sense after watching ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi.’ I don’t think that’s the case, so here are my arguments for the most prominent issues I’ve seen discussed online.”

Stories that don’t seem very important at first, but may end up being the most important thing to ever happen. If you’re lucky, he might even reveal the biggest mystery of them all: what’s with all the aliases?”
