Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Writer Breaks Down Fiery Darth Vader Duel

SPOILERS for the series about Obi-Wan Kenobi. Consider yourself warned. After years of rumors and speculation, we are now in the middle of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+. With the long-awaited return of Ewan Mcgregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series also includes other explosions from the past, such as Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Joby Harold, the author of Obi-Wan kenobi, explained Darth Vader’s return and his preparation for his fiery duel with his former master.

The third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi brought Anakin Skywalker and his former master back together for the first time since the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. While trying to take the young Leia Organa to his father, Obi-Wan Kenobi is confronted by Darth Vader and his inquisitors. To attract Kenobi, Darth Vader walks along the street of a mining village that meets innocent people. “We’ve set the language: Jedi hunt themselves—because they can’t sit idly by and watch innocent people get killed,” Joby Harold told Vanity Fair. “So Vader is very aware of what he is doing when he walks down this street. The horror of the moment has emotional weight, because it is calculated.Joby Harold said they wanted to see Vader completely unleashed, with all his anger and hatred in full screen mode.

It was a thousand percent intentional. From Vader’s point of view, we all live with the memory of the end of Rogue One and how effective it was. It was very gratifying to see how Vader was finally unleashed in such a sequence, so we wanted to try to win him if we could. It was much more extreme at one point.

Harold added that the scene was originally “much more extreme”, but “retreated a little”.”When Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi finally duel, the dark lord easily masters the battle and ends it by trying to burn Kenobi alive. “His choice shows the character underneath and the torture underneath—pain and an eye for an eye,” Harold explained. “This is an opportunity to report something under the mask. Vader can not talk about his feelings. So it must be in action. It comes from the fact that you shoot people on the street behind you, trying to get the Jedi out of his hiding place, and it comes by inflicting on the Jedi the same pain that he inflicted on you. It’s terrible, but it should be. This is Darth Vader.“

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi experienced his greatest defeat-the overthrow and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as the evil Sith lord Darth Vader. The first three episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are now streaming on Disney+. Check out a review of our own Alex Maidy here.
