Ben Kenobi recounts his life before exile, the rise of the Empire and the death of Luke Skywalker's father at the hands of his renegade apprentice, Darth Vader.
This video is inspired by the epic 'Obi-Wan Remembers Anakin & The Truth (Flashbacks) Remastered' video by Smasher channel.
Thanks to the creators of Star Wars and also to the numerous uploaders of Star Wars clips I pulled from to use in this edit - special mention to Marcelo Zuniga and Star Wars Plus for such high quality video.
Additional music used:
Anakin's Dark Deeds - John Williams
Anakin's Betrayal - John Williams

I've seen this video thousands of times (before the dark times) and always i see it, all my hair, on head, arms, etc, bristle and a good chill runs over my body. Because the music, the dialogs, the story reminds me when I was a kid and saw Ep. IV for the first time and I loved the films. Very good video, that Star Wars were, before the dark times, before the DisneyEmpire.

I didn't really appreciate the Star Wars prequels until after I watched this video.

sins of our father. we cannot escape it. its a brutal story and I hate it. Choose the heros journey. at least you get peace at the end.

When Ben says his line, "He betrayed and murdered your father", cut over Anakin catching fire, I'm willing to admit I cried a little 😢 there's genuine emotional layers to that one little moment and it hurts, man

Jedi remind me of Vietnam vets. They fought so hard, but saw friends die, and then had everyone (Empire) hate them. Obi Wan probably had serious PTSD from Mustafar, and the war.

If you watch the Anikan vs Obi wan fight when Anikan is on the ground just before he says I hate you if you watch you can see him mouth dialogue that was filmed then muted in editing. Anikan cried out . " I'm Sorry! Help me. Help me!" And when his master did nothing he yells. "I HATE YOU!"

You threw too many scenes into this that it's distracting from the moment. The other version of this on ESvid is much better.

When I was younger I just thought Obi Wan was lying to Luke when he said darth Vader killed his dad but now that I’ve thought about about, I’ve realized that he sort of did kill Anakin.

What Obi-wan said about Darth vader Murdering Luke's father may not be literal but it's true. Anakin chose the dark side and he let his jedi past disencreate into oblivion and became something worse .He became an empty black hole of the force.

truly great edit, gave me so much chills
Cameron Grimes

Sad part of the story, she Luke asks how his father died and Ben says that he was killed by Darth Vader. If you don’t take this as a blatant lie, maybe Ben is saying the Anakin died when he became evil. Maybe Ben says this in order to separate the good from the evil side of Anakin.

Putting clips together like this, the prequels really dont seem half as bad... Except for the Phantom Menace. That movie was garbage.

This was cool to watch. There are times I feel like "a new hope" is amazing despite the dialog. Ben Kenobi set up star wars for everyone. His 1:1 with Vader felt like we needed to know the whole story. And all the fans settled in. It was worth the bad dialog. Very nicely done on this vid.

As a kid my parents took me on vacation with them to a small resort... I was about 5 or 6yrs old ... out of now where sir Alex G comes up to me gets down on one knee and says use the force.. he was in total character... I was stunned. Later I learned that he dint think much about that role he took in the beginning. He took points on the film.. cause George Lucas dint have alot of coin to pay ...little did he know it was his biggest roles.. financially too..and what many ppl remember him for.

The prequels added context to the OT. The sequels completely lack it. This is the story of the Skywalker Family, not some random girl who suddenly gets 'woke.' You can really sense the absence of George Lucas in the new films.
