Star Wars: A New Hope is one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time that spawned perhaps the greatest movie franchise in history. And yet despite all its greatness, there is still some wonkiness to the movie due to limited special effects.
Perhaps the biggest scene in which the film shows its age is the lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The duel looks far less polished and intense as the ones in Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi, and obviously far less flashier than those in the prequels or the new trilogy.
Considering the history between the two characters, fans have longed for a far more intense duel between Vader and Kenobi. Well, luckily some fans got together and produced a short video showing a re-imagined duel that’s far more action-packed. Take a look:
The video was made by a YouTube channel called “FXitinPost.” The makers of the video said they are planning to release a full-length version of the duel in 2018, and only released this as a teaser for the final version.
Just another reason to look forward to 2018.
