Interesting, thanks. The Oliver Twist element does inform a bit on the feeling of that 7 minute preview, I got a hint at that sense at the time. And it's good he grows a little and has room to grow - sounds like they intentionally crafted a less likable version of Kanan in that respect, who in A New Dawn is more likable but has room to grow.He was portrayed as a survivor, loner who was scraping out an existence by doing whatever was necessary. He was selling tix to an illegal gladiator fight at the beginning of the book. Picture Oliver Twist in the SW world.
You stumped me on Ezra's likeability, JT. He's a teenager, for goodness sake, who comes across as a little annoying, smart-mouthed but he grew on you by the end. He has room to develop as a character and that's a good thing.
So, did Obi-Wan see a little of himself in young Anakin or Luke?
