The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
I love this explanation. OBI Wan is also my favorite Jedi for much the same reasons you give. Top work!
Obi Wan all the way. For the greater good!
cool theorie, but one qeustion, how can it be that when jedi have to train and study o long to be able to become a force ghost like Obi One and Yoda. And Darth vader is focused on the now, this moment, this universe and to increase his power now. That at the end of the Return of teh Jedi, after Dart VAder is defeated and Anakin Skywalker is once again himself, he showes up as a force ghost? Not have been trained in that way of the force...
find an original release.. he doesnt come back as a ghost that was just a re release thing to make people feel good about anakin/vaders soul.
No, in the original he always came back as a force ghost. He was his older self though, not Hayden Christensen.
In a (now non-Canon) book about Obi-Wan's life, it mentions Obi-Wan as a force ghost talking to Anakin right after Anakin dies, telling Anakin he must quickly listen to Obi tell him how to become a force ghost before Anakin's conscious fades. I assume that due to Anakin's strength in the force, he is able to learn faster then most.
That kind of makes sense
I refuse to acknowledge anakins force ghost in the re releases.. it was not original cannon therefore I refuse its existence lol
Obi-Wan is my favorite, too, and my reasons are the same as your's. He's also the one who most closely shares and embodys my beliefs
i had always thought obiwan accepted it was his fate to be struck down by vader and in so doing became one with the force its self at that point the blade hit.by accepting fate and being at peace with it his body vanished into the force its self much like yoda accepts his own death
If darth maul can survive being cut in half, surely the chosen one can swing a ghost...
I like this explanation, however I also believe that Obi Wan had not really declined in his ability rather he was stalling. By far he has and always will be my favorite Jedi. So think about this Obi Wan being as strong as he was and being Jedi sense others and future he knew he needed to buy Luke, Han, and Leia more time. Vader all be it as strong as he was, was too consumed by Obi Wan's presence and his extreme hate had not a concern towards a possible other force sensitive present. Obi Wan was stalling until the final moment he needed to give Luke and the others the time needed and to allow his sacrifice to be witnessed by Luke.
