So some dude who loves to animate called FXitinPost, decided to put some gaming time aside (if he plays games), to recreate the lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader from Star Wars IV: A New Hope. The seven-minute video, available even in 2160K resolution (if your screen's up for it), is reimagined because the animator wanted to match up the fight sequence to the ones in Empire Strikes Back and subsequently Return of the Jedi and the three prequel films.
According the official description, "Scene 38 Reimagined is about the final confrontation between Ben Kenobi & Darth Vader in A New Hope nearly 20 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. This is a one-off, story-driven scene reflecting the characters in its chronological order from the point of Revenge of the Sith through Rebels, Rogue One, and all canon material leading to A New Hope."
In this reimagined duel, dubbed Scene 38 Reimagined, Obi-Wan and Vader duel in a style that is more in line with the prequels and sequels. They both used their Jedi and Sith powers against one another and look more bad-ass than Lucas' budgeted-ass in the original (even in the re-released digital Blu-ray whatever versions). The interesting thing is that soundtrack from Revenge of the Sith was used instead, which harkens back to the day when their younger versions duelled on the planet Mustafar.
Kudos to FXitinPost. May the Force and your rendering 'puter be with you...
Oh since we're on the topic of duels, here are some medieval sword duels from films which I think are some of the best, if not entirely accurate. Check them out.
