+1511 – It’s so tragic that Obi-Wan lost everyone he loved in this picture, yet he never gave up hope. Truly one of the best written characters in all of Star Wars

  1. And don’t we forget Satine.

  2. From Return of the Jedi:

    > BEN

    > Your father was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed… He’s more machine now than man. Twisted and evil.

    > LUKE

    > I can’t kill my own father!

    > BEN

    > Then the Emperor has already won. You were our only hope.

    Obi-Wan absolutely lost his faith in Anakin.

    Ahsoka was better written, and there’s plenty of characters in the EU have actual arcs, but hear me out: Obi-Wan is the best character in the Lucas movies. That can’t be understated. The casting and recasting were fantastic, the character doesn’t have the worst dialogue, and the audience gets a feel for the character at different stages of his life. However Ahsoka has all that and isn’t hindered by being in the movies. In clone wars, there’s a place all the movie characters nominally start from-Attack of the Clones and there’s a place where they end up-Revenge of the Sith. Whatever character arc that those character might experience within Clone Wars is bounded by set conditions of the movies. As a result they’re fairly flat. Movie Characters in the EU have much of a similar experience with major character changes requiring approval from Lucas, so the characters don’t change very much. They feel like cardboard cutouts with plot armor next to the original characters and this is true whether in clone wars or the EU. Ahsoka, as an original character, isn’t limited by the limited writing and character developement of the movies. If you consider her on screen time compared to any character in Star Wars, including al the movies, she probably has the most screen time with the most unbounded capacity to grow and change according to the dictates of the story.

    Ahsoka grows not only as a character but how the fan base views her. When she first premiered, many claimed or assumed she was a “Mary-Sue” and it took a couple of seasons for Clone Wars to turn that around. She grew as a character so much her final story lines in the movies lend better characterization to the movie Characters themselves. She would have become a Jedi knight, and thereby Anakin would have become a master except because of the actions of the council disillusioning her. Her disillusionment parallels and exemplifies much of the disillusionment of many of the Jedi by the end of the War including Yoda, Anakin, and Obi-Wan. Her appearance in Rebels and the Mandalorian and BoBF was met with happiness of many fans regardless of what they thought of those shows themselves.

    Finally I can’t get away without saying how much I hated the relationship between Obi-Wan and Anakin in AOTC. Honestly there’s a lot of resentment against Anakin by Obi-Wan resulting in Obi-Wan being harder on him than he rightly needed to be. It’s like an older brother having to raise his younger brother after their father unexpectedly dies. The two performers by all accounts had a good friendship on set and it’s really the poor direction from Lucas that makes it so awkward between them and even between Anakin and Padme.

  11. He even lost his rat 🙁

  12. Idk about Obi wan loving padme at best she was a colleague and the girl of his brother, idk I never felt like they had any real connection besides anakin

  13. The prequels should have been about Obi-Wan, IMO.

  14. Well written? Basic character…

  15. I don’t think he loved Padme, but I wouldn’t blame him if he did

  16. Funny enough, earlier today I just read Claudia Gray’s short story “Master and Apprentice” from the anthology *From a Certain Point of View*, and one of the story’s central features is Qui-Gon’s spirit reflecting that despite all the people Obi-Wan has lost, as well as the Jedi Order that provided the entire framework for his life, his apprentice has endured.

  17. Read in liam neson’s voice: “stop playing with the laser pointer”

  18. It’s as if he found a new hope.
