OBI-WAN KENOBI Spoilers: Darth Vader's Horrifying Introduction In The Disney+ Series Reportedly Revealed

Darth Vader looks set to be a big part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series coming to Disney+, and a new report sheds some light on the Sith Lord's brutal, horrifying introduction scene. Read on for details...

Star Wars fans spent years wondering why Anakin Skywalker had to wear that imposing black costume as Darth Vader and, as the original trilogy continued, we'd learn that it was keeping the Sith Lord alive. In 2005's Revenge of the Sith, the truth behind what happened to Anakin was finally revealed when we got to see that epic clash between the former Jedi and his Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.

After cutting off Anakin's legs and one of his arms, Obi-Wan left his former pupil to burn. It was a harsh punishment, but one "The Chosen One" arguably deserved after murdering those Jedi Younglings in cold blood while helping Darth Sidious destroy the Jedi Order (among many other crimes).

When Obi-Wan Kenobi begins, Darth Vader will have had a decade to think about what his former Master did to him. We know that his suit leaves Anakin in constant pain and, according to Making Star Wars, the Disney+ series will reportedly drive that point home at the beginning of episode three. 

Apparently, that begins with the badly scarred Anakin on a table, limbless, and in agony as his various body parts are reconnected and re-activated after a night in the Bacta Tank. The site goes on to explain that this is how Vader begins his day (every day), emphasising what he's been going through since his defeat in Revenge of the Sith. Needless to say, this should be a powerful moment.

A new trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi is expected to be released during the upcoming Star Wars Celebration event, so here's hoping we get a glimpse at Darth Vader in action in that next sneak peek.

Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres with its first two episodes on Disney+ on May 27.
