Is it a ***SPOILER*** to say that Obi-Wan Kenobi dies in the first Star Wars? Technically it is, but that's not my question. Here it is-
Question: Why isn't Obi-Wan a bleeding mutilated torso at the end of his fight with Darth Vader in Star Wars?
We know he died. He's a ghost in the other movies. He dead. I ain't no truther. And we know he died from a lightsaber fight with Darth Vader. But his death most definitely looks like a disappearing act from any amateur stage magician. This is Willow-level shiz. He died by getting cut in half by a lightsaber. That's supposed to involve limbs flying off. Stumps. Pain. You know? Why doesn't he look like the Black Knight in Holy Grail?
[Also, May the Fourth be with you nerds. Our healthcare system got gutted by an awful bill on 5/4/2017, so I didn't really celebrate the holiday.]

I've honestly wondered about it for almost 30 years now. I have this aversion to looking through Star Wars fan pages for the answers because...well, I think that the die-hards might be a little too creative (and not honest enough) in their answers. I don't think the decades of Force lore were at the forefront of Lucas's mind when he shot the scene. Looking at the scene now, I can't help but think Lucas intended for Obi-Wan to popup again alive somewhere but decided that death may have been better.
