This Reimagined Vader vs. Kenobi Duel From ‘A New Hope’ Is Boss

Mind you this project is fan-inspired and not sanctioned by Disney or Lucasfilm, but after you watch the teaser for it, you may wish that it was.

The teaser video below shows Star Wars fans a different take on the fight between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope. The fight as it exists is very lackluster and uneventful. At best it looks like two dudes in a fencing match, but for the most part it didn’t feel like a true fight between two very powerful Force users. Both Vader and Kenobi looked old and decrepit, and didn’t look like they were putting much effort into the duel. They definitely didn’t come off as impressive swordsman, but the creator is aiming to change all of that with his reimagining of the scene.

As you will find out below, the creator gave the fight much more flair and power. Both Vader and Kenobi look like skilled fighters, and you can feel all of the years of their training through their abilities with a lightsaber during combat. They look like older versions of themselves from their epic duel on Mustafar, albeit Vader’s moves are more heavy handed and powerful now that he’s been crippled and is in a life support suit.

After you check out the video make sure to leave a comment down below to let us know if you enjoy this version of the fight, or the one that is in the actual movie. Don’t forget to stay tuned for the full version of the fight, which should release sometime in 2018.
