Awhile back we had a discussion going somewhere about this line from Obi-Wan in ANH.
The idea was put forth that the prequels failed to illustrate this because of the strained relations between Ani and Obi in AOTC following their little amount of screentime together in TPM.
I think I came down on the side of saying that yes we DO see some "good friend" stuff but it could have been more solid, could have been done better.
Then again, I ALSO realized that there was a whole new movie yet to come so we should see what happens there.
My HOPE was that before Ani goes off with his Palpy-Worship, we could see these two as good friends, the kind of good friends Old Ben seems to remember so fondly.
Reading the new Insider last night (interview with Ewan McGregor, Issue 81 page 48) got me excited because that hope is very much alive:
I sure hope they were able to pull this off.Originally Posted by Ewan McGregor
