The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
First off all. Continuity was thrown out the window in Rebels and now they have to make up for it and explain the differences. The reason why Vader was clunky in the OT is because the armor and helmet is very, very restrictive. It hinders about 60% of your body movement. And your arms can't go past mummy hight. Rebels ignores the reality of Vader's armor. Now they have to explain why.
No its because he was toying with Kenobi in ep iv. In empire and Jedi he knows Luke is his son . knowing that he's just trying to were him down in the hopes he will fall to the dark side and join him overthrowing palpatine. If itxwas any other Jedi Vader would have gone full on sith killing machine
Do we need storyline explanations for everything, can we just not accept production limitations and two old men, one highly restricted by his costume. Do we have to justify everything? It's like the stupid fans carrying on about Ben not seeming to know artoo, it's a movie allright? one was made before the other, get over yourselves.For the time it was made the fencing in ANH was quite acceptable, be thankful it improved. This is star wars not star trek, we don't need everything having the shit explained out of it, we went through and entire trilogy on a very superficial level, where there were blanks our imaginations fleshed it out. We didn't need everything 'explained', there's something very, very wrong with this generation of star wars fans that seem to need this level of detail and see conspiracies in every detail. Grow up son, it's a movie not real life.
Dude could not have said it better
I disagree. The reason Vader was quick and vicious in Rebels, slow and methodical in Hope, and a mix of the two in Empire, is simply a testament to his fighting skill. In Rebels he was fighting two enemies, one strong adult and an inexperienced but energetic kid. So he had to move quickly to fight them, but not so skillfully. When fighting Kenobi, however, he was fighting a highly skilled master. He couldn't afford to waste energy, he had to really think about how he was going to fight, because a single opening would have meant his death. And against Luke, it was mostly testing his ability, because A he didn't really want to kill his son, and B because he was still trying to recruit him. He had to move faster to keep up with Luke's increased speed over Obi Wan, but didn't need to think so hard about the fight, as he was never in any real danger in that battle.
Wow...that is rhe stupidest thing I've read all week. COMPLETELY retarded
