Being a Star Wars fan, I like many others received the surprise of a lifetime when Disney announced they were bringing the franchise back to life. Then announced not a reboot but a continuation of the original story bringing back past cast members and familiar faces to mix with new talent and a fresh story.
So I love pretty much everything about Star Wars, from the stories of love and loss, the different environments/planets, to the never ending power struggle between good and evil which seems to be the heart and the backdrop of what makes Star Wars. But what I enjoy the most is the flow of lightsaber duel between a Sith and a Jedi.
I think what I enjoy most about lightsaber duels is that though extremely violent, there seems to be a very smooth flow to the battle, almost as if there are rules to the movements. It's not just some wild sword fight... This stems from the fact that the lightsaber can be equally as dangerous to the wielder as it can to the person on the opposite end. I have compiled just a few of my favorites from the Star Wars franchise below.
Anakin Vs Obi-Wan for so many reasons is one of the greatest lightsaber battle scenes of all-time and personally my favorite. Maybe it had something to do with the emotions between Master and Padawan, or two brothers. One who had lost his way and the other who truly believed in the prophecy that Anakin would destroy the sith, and just wanted his brother back. Maybe it's just the epic scale of where this battle takes place, planet Mustafar which is basically a volcanic planet covered in lava, coupled with an amazing soundtrack you can't go wrong.
The way I see it is, if this is any indication of the direction lightsaber battle was heading back in 2005 almost 10years ago, lightsaber duel fans should be in for a treat December 18, 2015.
