Comentarii

  • 😢

  • This version was clearly stolen from previous video made a while before this one My comment is either deleted or just really hidden but this was the first and better one... ro-tv.com/tv/video-T9j7kLG7VK8.html

  • Like:“How did my father die?” *obi wan flashes back to cutting his limbs off and watching him burn alive* Obi wan:“Peacefully”

  • When Obi-Wan says he betrayed and murdered your father it really fits with the tone

  • At 2:34 - 2:42 you see how Anakin's eyes turn from deep blue to the Sith gaze of Darth Vader. A true character change. So much anger towards Obi-Wan, so much self-hatred for losing, so much pain. Anakin's life is truly sad. Born a slave, killed his own wife bearing his children through blind rage, his own mother told him not to come back because she knew there was nothing for him there and only to lose his mother in his arms after years away training. Going against his Jedi Code for love; what is the Jedi Code compared to a woman's love? He never asked to be the chosen one, to have so much power at his grasp and yet for that power to be corrupted by the dark side... he just couldn't lose anything else... as the title of being "the chosen one" had already taken too much away. What a tragic story. Used as a blunt tool by the Sith and labeled as 'untrustworthy' by his own Jedi Order, his own brothers and sisters. This scene makes Darth Vader scarier because there isn't a man in the suit anymore. Just a killing machine: a soulless, heartless cyborg following orders. Killing all that breathes a spark of hope. I think Hayden Christesen really expressed it very well on this scene. The dark side whispers promises but the dark side only takes.

  • That was awesome

  • I like this video, good work! I always wanted to see it like this

  • The problem with Obi-Wan Kenobi is that he had regarded his past (at least before the fall of the Republic) as something ideal, when no such ideal state ever really existed.

  • 1;04 Anakin has brother ??

  • 3:14 "He betrayed your father and murdered him"

  • > not gotten involved > remain enslaved

  • How...how did the magnificent Alec Guinness get this...so perfect...decades earlier

  • Luke:How did my father die? Obi-Wan:Lets just say he wasn't good at playing the floor is lava

  • This edit is AMAZING

  • The edits everything is perfect in this vid

  • How did my father die? I had the high ground

  • Watch "Obi-Wan has PTSD" on youtube. It was made a year before this and is probably where this person got the idea to make this. :)

  • This makes me sad...

  • “How did my father die?” *cuts to Anakin on Mustafar as the music intensifies* The feels!!

  • "And he was a good friend"..... OW my feels

  • Somebody knows the name of the soundtrack at ro-tv.com/tv/video-WytHmlDWEgk.html ??

  • Out of all the tribute videos that people make on Anakin and obi wan because it’s very popular this in my opinion is the best the music just sells it and it’s not edited too much to the point where it’s over edited and plain simple with the music at the perfect times

    • Yes i agree it really helps understand star wars eaven better. The prequel were before order 66 i like them

  • The songs nkins dark deeds and anakins betrayel

  • Damn I remember when I was like nine and secretly watched episode 3 with my bro late night. And I cried through my sleep because it was so hurtful to watch how Padme died in pure sadness like that and her children never got to know their mom or dad (before he became a sociopath warlord) lol

    • Lol - And that's why it's rated 12.

  • so dumb lmao

  • Superbe vidéo, le montage est très bien réalisée et la musique donne des frissons haha *thumbs up !*

    • ¿Tú hablo mucho inglés o no?

  • At 2:00 where you do a match cut between the two lightsabers, that’s incredible

  • “Before Disney”

    • Lol

    • Yes star wars must be freed the empire took over sorry but Disney was a mistake

  • I love how George Lucas seamlessly connected the Prequels and Original Trilogy, despite being a couple decades apart(in real life). The actors, such as Ewan McGregor really emphasised this, made both trilogies so much better

    • George Phinn It wasnt seamless. In the ot vader turns to the dark side to get power. Never mentions his mother or wife to luke or ben. Leia lived with her birth mother. Ben was only trained by yoda. Chewie never heard of the force or jedi. R2 never met ben kenobi before a new hope. When he meets ben he is scared of him until ben says “Come here, my little friend. No need to be afraid.”

    • Same

  • Man, i'd be totally fine if the prequel movies were told through flashbacks like this, in Lucas's 900th remaster of the original 3.

    • @Isaac Wale sorry bud, i love the prequels. "nah" what?. seeing the originals in this fashion would be sweet is what i was saying.

    • Nah. I still like them. But they should remake the originals like this anyway.

  • This video gives me goosebumps.

  • “How did my father die?” “Oh lord, how do I explain this?”

  • I thought by dark times you meant Disney Wars. The times have never been so dark.

    • They are i warned many disney is the evil empire....They dont want HOPE in the galaxy

  • Luke: how did my father die? Kenobi: *remembers fight on mustifar* Kenobi: he was killed by someone

  • It's great.

  • 1:58 this transition was perfect

  • Obi wan may not have been the most powerful jedi but he is the embodiment of what a jedi should be Anakin embodied all of the skill and training But kenobi embodied the morals and beliefs of the jedi

    • Yes hes my favorite now that im older and study film allen genis must of read the whole 9 movie script because he shows hints in his speech and action flawless times

  • I cried

  • How did my father die? - Well, frankly, I've cut off his balls with this lightsaber and that was a pretty awesome strike

  • and then people say prequels are bad or so they were saying, while in reality they really fill up originals

  • anyone here miss old movie of star wars that were badass and sad that made u cry!!??? in 2019??!! anyone here miss obi won and Anakin skywalker and padme??!!! :(

  • anyone here in 2019???? august

  • "before the dsrk times"? you mean before freaking DISNEY MADE it BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This is better than anything Lucas ever put together, and will never be matched by the Disney shitshow.

  • my favorite part about all of this is obi-wan never once mentions anything bad about anakin. in his speech, and we see reflected through your selected clips representing his memory, he chose only good things to remember about his former brother and padawan. the burning on mustafar, the rage of anakin screaming 'i hate you' could easily have infiltrated obi-wans memories, but we see it is not without deliberate choice that obi-wan chooses to remember only the good parts of anakin, and understands his former brother had been taken by vader. im not crying. you should stop crying.

    • Also Lucas did not have the prequels written out before the the 80s. Empire Strikes Back was called chaper 2 in 1978.

    • Phil Pacific Thats a frabrication by Lucas. Rinzler who wrote the making of books has said vader wasnt lukes father when a new hope was made. Also in 1977 lucas wrote down the backstories to the robots. He has c3p0 be 112 years old and made in a factory which contradicts anakin building him in episode 1. Basically George Lucas is a liar.

    • @ii ii false. lucas had written the entire story, but decided to film the second trilogy first due to available technology at the time.

    • Phil Pacific Obi wan only says good things about anakin because when a new hope was made anakin and vader were separate characters.

  • That “he betrayed and murdered your father” line sounds so much better with that song

  • Great video. Period.

  • brilliant. epic. editing is fantastic. inserting clips from the prequels along with ROTS soundtrack absolutely magnifies the depth and emotion in this scene. this goes to show how magnificent the works of men like george lucas and john williams truly are. their works are not excellent in isolation, but consistently excellent across themes and sagas. genius.

  • The part where he said he was a good friend that really got me

  • this is perfect other than the music being slightly off queue at 2:18 and 3:16 and a few choppy edits

  • Honestly... obi wan told Luke the truth... not just from a certain point of view. Vader was literally another person. He did betray and murder Anakin.

  • How did my father died?? I had the high ground '_'

  • That was awesome!

  • Bravo !

  • I love it

  • That hit me in a way that no emotional movie has ever done

  • Don't lie to my son, you cut my limbs off and left me to burn Obi-Wan.

  • I know Star wars from Episode I to VI ...after that I lost interest

  • One of the best made vids I've ever seen. A++

  • Duuude woah, right in the feels

  • This sounds so much better with headphones.

  • This Is About To Make Me Cry 😢

  • I showed this too my dad and when he saw Obi-Wan dismember Anakin he said “I guess that’s how Anakin became Legolas.” Damn it, Dad.

  • Can’t figure out why but i just can not stop watching thins. Everything about it is amazing! The music translations, the flashbacks, everything! Amazing job

  • Hate, hate is what killed anakin and brought Darth Vader to life.

    • @Xavier Lauzac no really, I said the persona of Anakin had died due to hate, and the dark part of him that was dubbed Vader took hold.

    • He didn’t really die.

  • Breaks my heart everytime obi wan says "and he was a good friend"🤧🤧

  • "The Dark Times" is what I call that period of the morning spent in the bathroom after a heavy drinking + curry night.

  • “Before the dark times “ “before Disney!!!!!NNOOOOOOOO

  • *SAD* Have you guys ever thought how "Rouge One" answered a plot hole from "A New Hope." It makes me sad that people have died without getting that plot hole fixed. BUT! On the bright side they don't see Luke Skywalker be ruined by "The Last Jedi"

  • My dumbass read Dark Times as Dank Memes smh

  • Why Anakin must become darth vader 😔😔😔

  • Very sad...

  • Bravo

  • blog.naver.com/7heppy7 We made it well.

  • This actor who plays old Obiwan, he was an ass hole actor who makes children cry badly

  • You wanna buy some death sticks?

  • This is sad!

  • 2:18 and there i cried

  • What a tragic story. Poor Anakin.

  • "here's your father's lightsaber. he killed 30 children with it."
