Disney+ adds violence warning to ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ series following Texas school shooting

Disney+’s most anticipated Star Wars movie series Obi-Wan Kenobi is here, and the studio has added an in-series content warning due to the show’s disturbing scene.

The series which has footage showing violence against Jedi school children had striking similarities to the shocking Texas school mass shooting accident.

So, to make it clear to all the public, the creators added a disclaimer on the first episode of Ewan McGregor’s show.

According to THR, the note reads: “Although this fictional series is a continuation of the history of Star Wars films filmed many years ago, some scenes may upset viewers in light of recent tragic events.”

The message reads under the details section, “Warning: Contains violence involving children.”

According to Variety, that post was shortened later on Friday and now reads: “There are certain scenes in this fictional series that some viewers may find upsetting. ”

The additions come after a Netflix added a content warning to the first part of ‘Stranger Things’ season 4 following the Texas elementary school shooting.

The post reads, via Variety, “We filmed this season of ‘Stranger Things’ a year ago. But given the recent tragic Texas school shooting, viewers might find the opening scene of the harrowing episode 1. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence, and our hearts go out to every family who mourns a loved one.”

Earlier this week, 18-year-old student Salvador Ramos shot and killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The horrific incident sends shock waves around the world.
