Obi-Wan Kenobi
Part IV's Hallway
Lightsaber Fight
Means More Than
You Think
By JASON CONNOLLY
Now, with the release of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Part IV, we have a third "hallway scene" that sees the eponymous Jedi master taking on a group of Stormtroopers in an Inquisitorial stronghold. Lightsaber scenes are always welcomed by “Star Wars” fans but this scene also showcases a vital piece of information that could have major implications for the rest of the series.
The scene shows Obi-Wan using his iconic "Soresu" lightsaber style once more. Throughout the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan became an unparalleled master of a defensive fighting style known as "Soresu," or "Form III," which focuses primarily on blocking lightsaber blows and deflecting blaster fire.
Since Obi-Wan was wildly overmatched in his fight against Vader during the last episode, seeing him regain a bit of his old strength and use his iconic style is incredibly important, as it indicates he is getting stronger in preparation for his inevitable showdown in the series' climax.
