resourceful war of stars buff managed to capture a moment of Ben Kenobi silently throwing shadows at Han Solo A new hopeand the fans were there for it.
Redditor AgeOfFlyingSharks has posted a clip on the r/StarWars subreddit of Ben (Alec Guinness) giving Han (Harrison Ford) the most epic sideways glance as he listens to the infamous smuggler exaggerate about himself.
Fans watched in delight as Kenobi’s features shifted from curiosity to disbelief and finally contempt, with a subtle smile touching his lips.
Sodium111 added to the fun by posting a screenshot of part of George Lucas’ script for the 1977 blockbuster with the statement, “Ben responds to Solo’s stupid attempt to impress her with blatant misinformation.”
OP praised Guinness’s quiet performance, describing it as an “understated masterclass”.
SamaritanPrime pointed out that Obi-Wan is difficult to impress given his experiences with his former padawan, Anakin Skywalker, who notoriously liked to fly dangerously.
FusionsOfWonder had nothing but praise for Guinness, commenting, “You don’t need a lot of dialogue with world-class acting.”
Another Redditor credited Guinness’ performance for the film’s popularity. In her opinion, the energy he brought to the role and the special effects helped make the space opera believable.
Fans were curious as to why OP named the character Ben Kenobi in their post, and OP explained that they first saw the film in a theater in 1977 as a kid. They pointed out that the character was officially referred to as Ben back in the day.
Almost half a century has passed since the publication of A new hope, and audiences are still in awe of the OG OBI-WAN. In fact, it’s a testament to his unforgettable acting talent. Not only was he able to say so much by saying nothing at all, his timeless twist can still touch the hearts of generations by remaining infinitely relatable.
