In Part III of the OBI-WAN KENOBI series on Disney+, Obi-wan Kenobi and a 10-year-old Princess Leia escape to a mining planet, but they’re tracked down by Darth Vader and his minions, which leads to a spectacular confrontation. Part III of OBI-WAN KENOBI is a suspenseful, intense, exciting episode where Obi-wan and Leia get help from an unexpected source, but the episode has some strong, intense violence and jeopardy and references to using the mystical Force, so caution is advised, especially for pre-teenage children.
Part III begins with Obi-wan Kenobi, aka Ben, calling out to his old master, Qui-Gon Jin, for help while Darth Vader emerges from a healing tank and puts on his iconic breathing suit. Ben and a 10-year-old Princess Leia have traveled to a desert mining planet to meet up with a member of the Rebel Alliance, who’s supposed to find them transport back to Leia’s adopted parents on Alderaan.
However, when they arrive at the meeting point, no one is there to meet them. So, of course, when a lone transport suddenly appears on the horizon, the preocious Leia flags it down, even though Ben told her not to. The driver, a creature named Fleck, welcomes them aboard. However, he grows suspicious. So, when they suddenly reach a stormtrooper checkpoint on the way to a small spaceport, Fleck tells the trooper in charge to check them out carefully.
Meanwhile, Inquisitor Reva reports to Darth Vader that she thinks Obi-wan has fled to a system of mining planets. Vader advises her not to fail him, or she won’t live to regret it. Cut to Reva meeting another inquisitor, named “Fifth Brother,” where it becomes clear that Reva has lied about the Grand Inquisitor who she murdered, blaming the murder on Obi-wan. Reva and Fifth Brother hope Darth Vader will name them the new Grand Inquisitor.
Eventually, Obi-wan and Leia make it to the small spaceport, with help from an unexpected source. However, Darth Vader shows up with Reva, Fifth Brother and other minions. Vader personally hunts for Obi-wan on the main street. Obi-wan decides to lead him away from Leia. He entrusts the local leader of the resistance on the mining planet to get Leia to the pilot of the ship waiting for her at the liftoff area. A surprise cliffhanger ends the episode.

There’s also a scene where Obi-wan calls out to his old mentor from THE PHANTOM MENACE, who’s passed on to the afterlife. Finally, little Leia can be disobedient, but that’s part of her nature that eventually helps her take no guff from Han Solo, her future husband, and fight against the evil Empire when she becomes a young adult.
