Star Wars followers are well-known for having What If? eventualities based mostly on the favored franchise, and the most recent epic fan-made video marks the arrival of one thing now we have by no means seen earlier than – Obi-Wan Kenobi combating Obi-Wan Kenobi in an entire transforming of the Obi-Wan vs Anakin Skywalker battle seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith.
With the Disney+ sequence that includes Obi-Wan within the not too distant future, one of the vital elaborately constructed fan-edited movies of current occasions has been posted on YouTube, that includes the Jedi as performed by Ewan McGregor in a battle with non aside from himself. The footage used to make the video is primarily taken from the ultimate moments of Star Wars: Episode III, the final of the a lot maligned prequel films by which McGregor portrayed a youthful model of the character played by Alec Guinness within the authentic Star Wars.
It was confirmed again in 2019 that McGregor had signed on the dotted line to reprise his function in a sequence that may see a bunch of faces from the prequels and extra returning to the franchise, together with Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. Bringing Christensen again as Vader units up a rematch for the previous mates, who have been final seen collectively within the fateful duel that led to Anakin Skywalker changing into the Sith Lord. Whereas there are little or no particulars accessible in regards to the plot of the sequence, a promised rematch between the pair has already been confirmed and it’s positive to develop into the stuff of Star Wars legend.
McGregor commented on the upcoming sequence just lately, stating that he was capable of do “a really particular scene” by which he acted reverse somebody he had by no means labored with earlier than, however whom he described as “anyone particular.” Followers of just a little Marvel TV sequence by the identify of WandaVision will really feel like that is one thing they’ve heard earlier than, because it is kind of a phrase for phrase verbatim of the quote Paul Bettany gave within the lead as much as the finale of that sequence.
Nonetheless, many followers felt laborious accomplished by when it turned out that he was really referring to scenes by which his character Imaginative and prescient fought with one other model of his personal character, White Imaginative and prescient. Although some could consider that this quote is what led to YouTuber Janobot posting their Kenobi Vs Kenobi epic on-line, it’s really nothing greater than a well-timed coincidence. Utilizing clips of McGregor’s Obi-Wan, and at some factors simply McGregor out of character, the battle of Mustafar won’t ever be seen in fairly the identical manner once more.
Whereas some will wonder if this doubles duel may very well be coming for actual within the Obi-Wan sequence, even with the similarities between McGregor’s feedback and people by Bettany on his double Imaginative and prescient, it’s unlikely that it is going to be the case this time. For starters, McGregor has already acted alongside himself earlier than in The Island.
My private perception is that the magic of know-how will likely be used to carry collectively McGregor’s Obi-Wan and Alec Guinness’s model of the Jedi in a single scene, it might actually be one thing particular and never simply one other Star Wars cameo look. With many months to go earlier than the brand new sequence airs on Disney+ on 2022, there’s loads of time for followers to create extra of their very own Obi-Wan movies to hitch the sensible efforts already on the market.
