Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Sidious gives Order 66 to all of the clone troop commanders which states to kill all Jedi. Only Yoda and Obi-Wan survive. Darth Vader leads a team of Clone Troopers to the Jedi Temple and all Jedi die. Not long after, Sidious appoints himself Emperor and declares the Republic a Galactic Empire. Anakin is ordered by Sidious to go to the lava planet Mustafar to kill the Separatist leaders. Yoda goes to confront the newly appointed Emperor and they duel throughout the Senate Chamber. Yoda flees from the battle after realizing that he cannot defeat Sidious. Obi-Wan defeats Anakin on Mustafar, leaving him critically injured on the banks of a lava river. Padme dies in childbirth, after Luke and Leia are born. Leia is given to Senator Bail Organa, to live in disguise as his daughter. Luke is given to his remaining Skywalker family on tattooine to live in secret. Obi Wan lives on tattooine in exile in order to watch over Luke, and during this time studies the force and all its mysteries. The last shot then shows Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader watch over the beginning construction of the Death Star.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Anakin arrives on Mustafar and tells R2-D2 to stay with the ship, he pulls the hood of his robe over his head with two organic hands. His right hand should be mechanical. [This mistake is mentioned in the audio commentary: this shot is taken from a shot of Obi-Wan later in the film when leaving Padme's apartment. Still a mistake, though.] (01:32:55)

Trivia: As Obi-wan and Anakin deliver Palpatine to the Jedi Council on Coruscant, look carefully at the lower right-hand part of the screen and you'll see the Millennium Falcon landing as well (confirmed by George Lucas).

Question: When some Jedi die, they disappear (Yoda, Obi-wan). When others die, they don't (Qui-gon, Vader). Why is that? I thought this phenomenon would be explained in this movie, but unless I missed something, no explanation was given.

Chosen answer: Powerful force users seem to have some degree of control over their bodies even after death. In the later series, Luke's wife Mara Jade Skywalker only allows her body to disappear when her killer, and nephew Jacen Solo arrives at her funeral as a clue. Thus it appears that a powerful force user can simply choose if they wish their body to disappear.

Answer: Towards the end of the movie Yoda tells Obi Wan that Qui Gon has learned the path to imortality and offers to teach this to Obi Wan. In the Clone Wars TV series we see the journey Yoda takes to learn this power. The power to become one with the force is a power you have to learn as opposed to being achievable to all Jedi. Both yoda and Obi Wan has the years between ROTS and ANH/ESB to fine tune and master this power. It is possible that Darth Vader, having seen Obi Wan become one with the force, spent the following years after A New Hope, studying and learning this skill by himself, hence how he was able to appear as a force ghost towards the end of Return of the Jedi, but not quite skilled enough to dissapear on cue.
