    One of my biggest complaints has always been the original Obi vs Vader scene in the first Star Wars. They looked like old men pushing sticks around. The scene was the weakest IMO in all of the movies based on all depictions of the Jedi/Sith throughout all the films.

    Then Rogue One came out and showed Vader as this badass which then made this scene look 100 times worse knowing how Vader looked in the final scene of Rogue One.

    Here is a fan made re-imagined scene which not only fixes it but blows the original out of the water. Sure there are some quirky things in the CGI and I wouldn't want this to be a final cut or anything but I would love if they would redo that scene in a similar way and put it in the original film.

    Interesting..... and very, very well done. Heavy on the action without losing the emotion.

    My only tiny little beef with it is that it makes Obi Wan appear weaker. Age seems to have little to do with the ability to utilize the force, as is evidenced by Yoda, who was nearly 900 years old when he faced off against the emperor and this new video seems to play on that. The original battle from A New Hope seemed better balanced between the two rivals, as did the battle from Revenge of the Sith (Anakin only lost because he let his arrogance and anger overpower his fighting skills). Anyway, this fan is nonetheless an outstanding piece. 4.9 out of 5.
