Obi-Wan Kenobi finally says "hello there" to Luke in the finale of his Disney Plus series.
If there's one thing that Star Wars fans can almost universally agree upon, it's that the prequel trilogy has produced some of the finest memes in the whole series. Nowhere is that truer than Revenge of the Sith, which has some of the most quotable lines in all of Star Wars history. I'm willing to bet that you've already got some in your head right now.
There's one line specific to Obi-Wan Kenobi that fans have been wanting to hear in the Disney Plus show ever since its reveal – "hello there". After five episodes, it was looking pretty unlikely that Ewan McGregor would ever say the line again, but the last few minutes of the finale had a surprise in store for long-time fans. Minor spoilers for the end of Obi-Wan Kenobi below.
In the final few minutes of the series, Obi-Wan is shown walking toward Luke on Tattooine, after previously having been banned from having any contact with him by Owen. As Obi-Wan reaches Luke he looks down at him and says the words Luke, and pretty much everyone over the age of 20, has been waiting to hear – "hello there".
It's a nice callback to the prequel trilogy that doesn't feel too forced. If you're unaware of what scene this is referencing, when Obi-Wan Kenobi was tasked with visiting General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith, he jumps down from the rafters in front of him and his troops. As he looks around and faces Grievous, he sarcastically says "hello there", cementing the scene as an eternal meme.
What makes this line even sweeter to finally hear is that there was a perfect opportunity for Obi-Wan to say it in an earlier episode, but he avoided it. When Obi-Wan was introduced to Freck, many fans expected him to say the iconic line but instead all he said was "hello". Close, but no cigar.
