I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Dutch actor, writer and environmentalist, Rutger Oelsen Hauer, has died 19 July 2019, aged 75. Having acted in films, fantasy, science-fiction and contemporary, Hauer is most famously known for rewriting part of his lines, called the C-Beams speech, at the end of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. He was portraying Roy Batty, the replicant Harrison Ford's character, Rick Deckard, was sent to kill.
Hauer's roles in fantasy films and television have not gone unnoticed however. He was Captain Etienne Navarre in Ladyhawke, Lothos the vampire in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (yes there was a movie), a mystic monk in Nostradamus, William Earle in Batman Begins, King Vortigern in Merlin, Kingsley in Galavant, Niall Brigant in True Blood and many more. One role he's done more recently though was the President of the World State Federation in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Another one was the Viking Dane Ravn, in The Last Kingdom TV series (see video clip above).
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.
