Star Wars character essay
This essay is about one of the epic films in the star wars series, this is Star Wars IV, A New Hope (1977) directed by George Lucas. In this essay you will find out why Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ben) is such an asset in this film, this will cover what Ben Kenobi looks like and how it helps the audience understand his role in this film, the role he plays in the film, and how he faces an internal conflict.
Firstly, Bens physical appearance. Ben wears an old brown cloak and hood with a white tunic underneath. He is old man, with a lot of grey hair in his stubble with patches of blonde. With bushy eyebrows and a stern face this is Ben’s physical appearance. His brown monk-ish looking cloak signifies that he is a religious man, his white tunic underneath means that he is pure and links him and Luke together. Ben Kenobi also wears natural colours, e.g. his cloak is brown and brown is a very natural colour whereas the empire wears cold blacks and military greens.
Secondly, Obi Wan Kenobi is a very important character in this film and in this paragraph you will learn of the role of his character. Ben is the Fatherly figure of Luke and has to persuade him to come with him and learn the ways of the force. He has to guide him to the big picture and show him his destiny to defeat the Empire. This is Obi Wan’s fate he has to guide Luke, make sacrifices for him because if he doesn’t all will be lost, as Luke is the Rebels key to victory!
Lastly, Ben faces many conflicts some external but mostly internal, so this paragraph will include one of his main internal struggles/conflicts. In the enemy base Ben knows he will have to confront his old apprentice Darth Vader, but what he doesn’t know is that he has to face an internal conflict resulting in him getting killed so that Luke and his friends can escape. This matters because if Ben didn’t let Vader kill him the Empire would have captured Luke and again all hope would be lost.
In conclusion, Obi Wan Kenobi...
