The series gives us a grim reminder of why Vader is one of the scariest villains of all time
episode 3 Obi-Wan Kenobic is out, and we’ve finally got a clear look at Darth Vader. The character has appeared several times in the past, but something keeps him from always moving forward to his full potential. Technical limitations or age restrictions interfere with his reign of terror. It’s also a fact that his dark armor and robotic, yet chilling voice provided by James Earl Jones made him an icon. His evil deeds are mentioned outside the frame, and are not happening in front of us. But it has changed. read on.
Darth Vader arrives!
Obi-Wan Kenobic The scariest iteration of Darth Vader ever shown. The Vader we saw in Episode 3 is brutal, powerful, and kills innocent people without even blinking. We have seen, or rather, have seen the implication that Anakin has killed a lot of people. However, fans usually jumped to his defense, saying that he had been corrupted by the Dark Side, and that that’s still good. In episode 3, we see Vader use force to kill a child. We hear the twitching of the baby’s neck and the cries of the parents. It’s all just to show his old mentor Obi-Wan that he doesn’t care about life. We can see that people have every right to fear and despise him.
We then see Darth Vader coming across Obi-Wan in the desert. Instead of killing him right away, Vader starts a short cat-and-mouse game, based on the fear Kenobi instills in him. He eventually proceeds to drag Obi-Wan across the fire, just as Anakin was burned by Mustafar’s lava. Obi-Wan barely survived a minor burn due to outside interference.
With all that said, we’re glad to see that Disney is indeed raising that PG-13 rating, and giving us the true Darth Vader experience. Watch all three episodes on Disney+.
