Think Obi1 might lose a limb during "The Duel?"
« on: January 14, 2005, 10:05 PM »
I was thinking about this after reading the Vanity Fair article.  It's obvious what Anakin loses, hell Lucas tells you in the article, but it would seem strange to me if Obi1 didn't lose at least a hand.  Any thoughts?

Actually, I don't think Obi-Wan would "lose" anything.  Part of his backstory after TPM is that he changed his lightsaber fighting style.  He went from being a Form 4 lightsaber practitioner like Qui-Gon and took up Form 3 after Qui-Gon was killed by Darth Maul.  Form 3 was almost totally focused on being a defensive lightsaber technique and it made Obi-Wan especially hard to defeat.  You can actually read a lot about this in the EPISODE II Visual Dictionary.
