Who doesn't love a bit of Star Wars? The franchise was born with A New Hope back in 1977 and has led to the launch a third trilogy in 2015, beginning with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Despite having an army of loyal fans, Star Wars isn't without its flaws. Some have an issue with the discrepancies between the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy, such as the scene early in A New Hope where Obi Wan Kenobi tells Luke what happened to his father.

"I killed him," old Ben Kenobi should say, "I left him drowning in a volcano... dying in agony... all because he killed some younglings."

But we don't get this concise summary. Fortunately however, Youtuber Shahan Reviews has craftily spliced together the beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope with the Kenobi-Skywalker fight scene from Revenge of the Sith. Prepare yourself... the feels are strong with this one.

As you can see above, the re-edited sequence is fantastic! Shahan's sequence shows the iconic moment in which Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) explains to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) how and why his father "died," alongside the epic fight scene between a young Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen). The result is pretty damn impressive.

The scene featuring Guinness and Hamill is good, but to a new viewer there's no context, whereas the fight scene featuring Anakin facing off against Obi-Wan Kenobi is emotive as hell and serves as the conclusion of a trilogy. Ultimately, the two spliced together fit surprisingly well.

The edited version has a low tone encouraged by slow music and is well edited to give the impression that Obi-Wan is recalling the dark event as he speaks with Luke about his father.

The video is impressive and shows some real knowledge of the movies, with the maker interpreting the mood of Obi-Wan's character as he discusses his past. If you haven't watched the video I encourage you to do so: let the feels flow through you!
