Of course, we all know how legendary Obi-Wan and Anakin's duel in Revenge of the Sith was and the obvious question on everyone's mind right now is: was it able to top their heated battle in Mustafar?

While many viewers found the finale's duel, which saw the Jedi Master triumph (well, sort of) against the Sith Lord incredibly thrilling and satisfying, some fans couldn't help but compare it to Episode III, and judging by their assessment, the much-awaited rematch might have fallen a little flat.

Whether Obi-Wan and Darth Vader's rematch actually lived up to all the hype, I'll leave that one up to you. Personally speaking, I still think their iconic Mustafar duel is superior and I believe a lot of fans will agree with me. However, taking nothing away from how the finale's duel was executed, I do appreciate the fact that Episode VI's battle wasn't just a rehash of their previous encounter.

All episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
