Some very interesting tidbits about Darth Vader’s Original Role in Obi-Wan Kenobi


Wow, I always had a problem with the idea of Obi Wan and Vader meeting before ANH but what he said about that line in ROTJ is very true. It opens the door for an encounter. What’s ironic is that despite that being the only real strong argument I’ve heard for this story to even exist and a really nice way to not only resolve a plot hole but give depth to a line of dialogue in the OT, they completely forgot about it. OW never attempts to redeem Vader.

Stuart Beattie’s reasoning for this story was giving Obi Wan an opportunity to attempt to save Anakin and deepen the idea of Vader killing Anakin “from a certain point of view”.

The producers of the show only wanted a cool fucking fight. What a waste.
