In the third episode of the Star Wars series, Obi-Wan Kenobi delivered fans what they had hoped for: a duel between our hero, Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his evil former student Anakin Skywalker, better known as Darth Vader. However, this great battle ended on an unfinished note, with Vader allowing Kenobi to flee with his life as a wall of fire separated the two combatants.
Darth Vader is what sort of monster? Obi-Wan Kenobi this week portrays Darth Vader as both menacing and weak. While the graphics in Part III is perfect, the encounter between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader brings back old Star Wars thrills. “Part III” cements Obi-Wan Kenobi as the most fascinating Star Wars television series since The Mandalorian. This one, too, needs greater prior knowledge, as it draws extensively on both the Prequel and Original sagas. But that’s a fantastic thing right now.
The cast Playing Obi-Wan Kenobi And Anakin Skywalker
Ewan McGregor plays Obi-Wan Kenobi, Hayden Christensen, and James Earl Jones as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. Christensen is portrayed as Darth Vader, whereas Jones is voicing Darth Vader from the previous Star Wars series.
Reason Behind Darth Vader Let Go Obi-Wan
Now the main question is why Darth Vader let go of Obi-Wan. The simplest and most apparent interpretation is that this occurs inside the larger Star Wars narrative, before the events of 1977’s A New Hope, in which Vader eventually kills a much older Obi-Wan during a lightsaber fight. Because Obi-Wan Kenobi is a prequel, the established mythos heavily influence the writing, and the storyline must reflect this. But it doesn’t mean there isn’t potential for some emotive narrative to supplement what we already know.
According to a new video on the Star Wars Theory YouTube channel, this is the actual reason Vader and Kenobi’s meeting ended the way it did. Vader and the Sith have been attempting to track down his former friend and master for the last ten years, giving Vader plenty of opportunities to fantasize about how he would like their reunion to go. While this will result in Kenobi’s death, there is also an element of psychological warfare at work: Vader intends to scare Kenobi as much as possible to crush his spirit before eventually laying him to rest.
The presenter says, “I think hurting him mentally will be more pleasurable for Vader and more unbearable for Kenobi than anything else. It would be too simple to kill Kenobi quickly. It would be too kind. I believe Vader is now engaging in mind games.”
Character Analysis Of Darth Vader
Darth Vader is a well-known character in popular culture. His respirator-assisted breathing, huge size, imposing armored garb, and penchant for enforcing discipline in the Imperial ranks by summary execution combine to make him the deadliest of cinematic bad guys.
As spoken by James Earl Jones, Vader is a truly terrifying presence onscreen, undoubtedly one of the most believable creatures to ever threaten a princess and her rescuers. Vader is the polar opposite of the warmly human Ben Kenobi, who is full of knowledge and reluctant to rage but ready to protect others.
Character Analysis Of Obi-Wan
Obi-Wan Kenobi was a Jedi Knight who learned from Qui-Gon Jinn and mentored Anakin Skywalker. Anakin and Kenobi both fought in the Clone Wars, which led to Anakin turning to the dark side and abandoning the order. Obi-Wan took refuge on the planet Tatooine, where he kept an eye on Anakin’s son Luke, whom he began teaching to be a Jedi like his father.
