Star Wars: A New Hope’s Darth Vader And Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber Battle Has Been Recreated And It’s Epic

The lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope has been given a fresh lick of paint and now it’s more powerful than ever before.

Obi-Wan Kenobi once said, “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” This particular line has gone down in movie history, as has the scene it was taken from.

However, upon rewatching the scene, most people will be struck by how badly the fight sequence between Obi-Wan and Vader has aged. This is especially true after the prequels since those films have some pretty decent lightsaber battles in them, even if the films themselves are a bit rubbish.

Well, now you can finally watch that scene updated for modern audiences and it looks truly remarkable.

The cleaver folks over at FXitinPost have taken the scene and made it worthy of Obi-Wan’s legendary line.

They’ve managed to recreate the fight scene perfectly and both Vader and Obi-Wan get to strut their stuff and really show off their skills.

They’ve also adapted the scene in relation to the characters’ fighting styles in the prequels just that the whole thing makes a bit more sense.
