The last episode of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi‘ finally brought the duel fans have been waiting for between the old Jedi of Ewan McGregor and Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) since ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith’.
Defeated by Kenobi, Vader ends up having part of his helmet destroyed, revealing Anakin Skywalker’s face… And the mix of the fallen hero’s voice with the mask’s mechanical voice was enough to make the audience shed tears.
On social media, fans are praising the scene, both for the breathtaking choreography and the dialogue between master and apprentice.
Check out the reactions:
The weight that this scene here makes clear everything that obi wan (ep6) says to Luke that anakin is more machine than man now. You can see the weight in Anakin’s eyes, and Vader’s voice, slk!!#ObiWan #DarthVader #Kenobi pic.twitter.com/b7pUPS4xx4

When Ben tells Luke that Darth Vader killed his father, he was referring to that, oh my God I’ve always been sad

#ObiWan It didn’t have a good direction, but it brought wonderful nostalgia.
This last episode managed to overcome the adversities. Simply epic.
Hayden Christensen, you’ve had your redemption.
Darth Vader deserves a series of its own. pic.twitter.com/LWb5U53qJ3

In Episode VI, Obi-Wan tells Luke that from his point of view, Darth Vader is responsible for Anakin’s death, and therefore, told Luke “the truth”.

Remembering that all episodes of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ are already available on Disney+.
The plot is set 10 years after the dramatic events of ‘Revenge of the Sith‘, when Kenobi secluded himself on Tatooine after his duel with Anakin to keep Luke and Leia hidden from his father and Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid).
Check out the trailer:
In addition to McGregor and Christensen, Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse return as Owen and Beru Lars, Luke Skywalker’s uncles.
The cast also has O’Shea Jackson Jr (‘Straight Outta Compton’), Rupert Friend (‘Homeland’), Sung Kang (‘Fast and furious’) Kumail Nanjiani (‘Eternal’), Indira Varma (‘Game of Thrones’), Simone Kessell (‘Reckoning’) and Benny Safdie (‘Uncut Gems’).
