You know from a cool perspective, its extremely well made and well done. But I still have a preference to the original fight.



I mean first of all, Obi-Wan was old and out of practice, he probably hadn't fought in years. At the same time, Vader was kind of the same, he wasn't what he was when he fought Obi-Wan on the beaches. And he probably hadn't faced a full Jedi in years.



At the same time, one of the important things that came out of revenge of the sith, was that these two were like brothers, forces pushes and tossing around boxes probably wouldn't have worked.


There was something really elegant about the original movie duel, it was quick and it was efficient.



Just to add on, one of the best light saber fights was still Obi-Wan vs Maul in Rebels where they resisted over doing it and showed what true mastery of the force is.

I love the fan version, but for me it really highlights how film making/story telling has evolved both as an art and due to the technologies available at the time.

it's cool in isolation, but trying to fit it in with the rest of the footage of Luke's escape is like the special editions where they threw up crappy CGI dinosaurs and hutts in front of the original Mos Eisley scenes. pretty jarring.

it would look more coherent if they also remade Luke/Han/Leia/Chewie's blaster battles with a bunch of shaky cam and slow motion dodges.

This was one of the most awesome parts of Rebels.
These Jedi duels were so interesting. The Ahsoka v. Vader was pretty cool as well.

I don't know why Disney seems to be taking Star Wars away from any of the Jedi stuff.
Star Wars Resistance, Rogue One, Solo, etc. are all pretty good compared to episode VIII. But I'm finding it hard to be interested in them since they don't have any jedi or force-related story lines.

I don't mind them getting away from the Jedi, it expands the galaxy beyond this war between a few thousand wizards and their enemy a couple of wizards.


I loved Rogue One because it took place after the Jedi purge, and you saw a Force user for less then a minute and he dominated everything. With Solo, same thing.


In a galaxy where there are probably trillions of beings from different species, its nice to see something beyond the Force.


Its funny because in the old republic games even when you play a non force using character, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Sith or a Jedi or a fallen Jedi, and if you went by Star Wars Lore, they'd pretty much kill you in seconds, so its nice to see a show or a movie where all things are kind of equal. And people aren't throwing planets at each other using the Force.


At the same time in Resistance, you know that there are force beings out there manipulating things and by all rights, if they ever appear it would really unbalance things.


I'd love a smuggler trilogy, or a bounty hunter trilogy of movies without the Jedi or the Sith being involved.



At the same time I still want the old republic trilogy where you have the Sith Empire and the Old Republic at war with the shadow of a super powered Emperor lurking in the shadows.
