This seems like straight out of Lucasfilm if they put in the proper effort in the effects. Amazing!
Since PixelJoker was participating in the Kenobi Redux thread I really hope that he is incorporating the great idea from Phase3/Broom kid of Vader getting his helmet sliced by Obi before he buries Obi with the rocks.
It would fix the stupid ending of Obi-Wan just walking away from the fight and letting Vader live. This would explain why Obi is not so uneasy in the end scenes because Vader assumes he is now dead. His effects skills would really be needed here to replace the intact helmet with the broken one for those fight ending shots.
Maybe he wants to keep the ending details under wraps until release, but just wanted to remind about the idea. Fingers crossed…
I have posted about this idea I saw from Phase3 in many Kenobi edits and even linked a concept test video of the idea. With some vfx work, it is completely do-able. We just need several shots of Vader to be edited so that his helmet is sliced instead of intact.
I actually ended up private messaging PixelJoxer95 on reddit about this exact idea and although he said he doesn’t plan on including it in the edit, he did mention that he might produce those necessary vfx shots so that others can use them in their own edit for achieving this concept.
This is the number one change I would LOVE to see done for a Kenobi edit because the final duel between Kenobi and Vader in the series is AWESOME! I love the conversation after the split mask and seeing them face off again during the pre-ANH/post-ROTS era is great. If we could just get the ending of it to make more sense thematically, then it would be beautiful.
