OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie Writer Reveals Deleted Scene Featuring Ben Battling LUKE Skywalker...On Mustafar!

Well, this would have been trippy! Obi-Wan Kenobi movie writer Stuart Beattie has revealed his version of the story saw Ben Kenobi battling Luke Skywalker on the same planet he once defeated Anakin on...

Before becoming a Disney+ TV series, Obi-Wan Kenobi was going to be a movie (and potentially a trilogy had original writer Stuart Beattie had his way). Ultimately, Solo: A Star Wars Story's disappointing box office performance changed Lucasfilm's plans for a number of spinoff movies based on Legacy characters, hence why the Jedi Knight's story was told across six episodes instead. 

Talking to The Direct, Beattie revealed that the group Obi-Wan found refuge with in his script worshipped a "goddess" that was, in fact, the Force. While not exactly Jedi in the traditional sense, they'd have powers that would have resulted in Obi-Wan having a very unique vision. 

"[Their leader] takes Obi-Wan to their sacred shrine, and says, ‘Put your hands on here, and close your eyes, and concentrate, and let the goddess talk to you,’ which is basically the Force," the writer explains. "And so Obi-Wan does it. And when he opens his eyes, he’s on Mustafar. And it’s like, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa, how I get here?'"

"And he sees a guy in a dark robe with a red lightsaber, and he’s like, ‘Anakin, Anakin, Anakin!’ And as the guy in the robe comes up, he lifts his lightsaber [and] you see it’s Luke. Mark Hamill, 19," Beattie reveals. "And so, Luke attacks him. Obi-Wan and Luke had this lightsaber battle in mine, which was mirroring, of course, Empire Strikes Back."

Apparently, the vision would have ended with Luke almost killing Obi-Wan and the Jedi Master realising that if he doesn't overcome his guilt and puts that on Luke's shoulders, he would turn to the Dark Side. We know Luke was tempted by that on more than one occasion, so this possible future for the fan-favourite Jedi would have been fascinating for longtime Star Wars fans.

This sounds like a crazy scene, anyway, but it's one of many ideas that Lucasfilm ultimately decided against including in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. Lots of Beattie's ideas did make it in, but it's easy enough to appreciate why there might not have been room for this one, in particular.
