I know this site talks about the original trilogy but my question centers around 2 things that happened in the original trilogy that didn’t make much sense regarding 1 event that happened in the newer trilogy. I just recently watched episode 1 with my husband and I noticed that Liam Neesan’s character Qui Gon Gin was murdered by Darth Maul however, his body was burned.
Typically this would make sense except in “A New Hope” and “Return of the Jedi” when Obiwon was killed by Vader, his body vanished into the force. When Yoda died in his tree house on the Dagobah System in front of Luke, he vanished as well.
That being the case, based on the original trilogy, Jedis vanish when they die. In episode 1, why didn’t Qui Gon Gon vanish? I’ve always wondered that.
