Star Wars: Major Obi-Wan Kenobi PLOT HOLE finally solved?

It’s always been a joke among Star Wars fans at how bad a shot stormtroopers are. In fact, there was even a reference to this in The Mandalorian. But why does Obi-Wan Kenobi praise their aim in the original trilogy?

Well, a popular new fan theory may have finally explained the apparent plot hole.

Reddit user fantheories101 writes: “Thanks to The Mandalorian, it’s canon that stormtroopers suck. 

“There’s the scene where two repeatedly fail to shoot something only a few feet away. 

“Also, the ex-sniper defends his credentials by emphasising that he wasn’t a stormtrooper, implying they’re known to have bad aim.”

They continued: “So in the Original Trilogy, why does Obi-Wan think they’re great? 

“He emphasises that the shots on the transport were too precise and thus must have been a stormtrooper.

“The simple answer: they literally don’t make them like they used to. 

“When Obi-Wan thinks of stormtroopers, he thinks of the clones he used to fight with. They were extremely talented.”

The theories added: “But thanks to the sequels, we know that stormtroopers are made up largely of new recruits of average people like Finn. 

“It makes sense. Clones were engineered to not have full life spans if I remember correctly. 

“So there’s no more clones but the Empire needs an army, so they recruit.

“That’s why stormtroopers suck but Obi-Wan assumed they didn’t.”

Additionally, the most popular comment on the theory pointed out that being a Force user makes aiming harder for one’s enemies.

Morvis343 wrote: “I think the presence of a Force user tends to throw off people’s aim. 

“Like in Rogue One when Darth Vader shows up, all of a sudden those Rebels can’t hit s***. 

“Some of those shots go so wide he doesn’t even have to block them. Or how nobody could hit Chirrut Imwe as he casually strolled across an open battlefield.”

Meanwhile, an Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus show is in the works.

Ewan McGregor, who played the Jedi Knight in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, is returning to the role.

Fans are expecting the show to be set during his years in exile on Tatooine before A New Hope.

A release date and title for the miniseries are TBC.
