Darth Vader's Spirit
When Darth Vader dies in Return of the Jedi, his spirit is seen at the end along with Yoda’s and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s. How did Vader or Anakin Skywalker learn how to bring his spirit back from the dead so fast?
See, when Obi-Wan Kenobi dies in The Last Hope, his spirit lingers around Luke Skywalker to help Luke finish his training and to guide him. Well, Obi-Wan had training to bring his spirit back from the dead. This was explained at the end of episode three, Revenge of the Sith.
At the end of episode III, Yoda tells young Obi-Wan that he has been contacted by Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan’s mentor, from the dead. Remember that Qui-Gon was killed by Darth Maul in episode I. Anyway, Qui-Gon contacted Yoda from the dead and told them that there is training to do in order to build up this ability to summon your spirit from the dead.
Anyway, so Yoda tells Obi-Won this new Jedi power information, and, therefore, received training from Qui-Gon, from the dead of course. That is why, Yoda and Obi-Won were able to come back from the dead and contact Luke, but Vader?
Vader never got the training! How was he able to learn instantly right after his death! Someone enlighten me!
In the first video provided in this blog, it shows the original Darth Vader played by Sebastian Shaw. It was later that George Lucas edited the ending of Return of the Jedi with the ghost of the young Anakin Skywalker from the prequel trilogy that was played by Hayden Christensen.
Lucas did this for the newer generation of Star Wars lovers that grew up with episodes 1-3 in the movie theaters while betraying his old fans that have been loyal since the late 70s. Anyway, see the newer version of the Return of the Jedi in the video below with Christensen appearing by Yoda and Obi One.
George Lucas should have edited the old Obi One with the young one played by Ewan McGregor since he sacrilegiously altered the original.
