Speaking of opening crawls, does anyone else miss those? I do. Doesn't feel quite Star Wars without them, IMO.
Those two standalone movies didn't have them, and the TV shows don't. They don't really need it, beyond maybe the first episode (maybe to just set the stage a bit?). But, seeing as how we're dealing with a PT/OT character and events in this upcoming show, I think it would be cool if the first episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi did the "A long time ago..." and opening crawl thing again.
I doubt they will, but it would be a nice touch. So much is conveyed in just three short paragraphs. I can recite the ones from ANH and TESB by heart...perfect setup/"here's what's going on..." writing.
