View Full Version : It's too dangerous!

I rewatched New Hope on Christmas and noticed something new yet again. Luke makes a run for the landspeeder and Obi -Wan says "It's too dangerous!" Two Mississippis later Luke jumps in and speeds away to the Lars home.

My question is why didn't Obi-Wan stop Luke? He could have used affect mind, telekinetically picked up the speeder or Burst of Speeded ahead to impede Luke. Instead he just watched.

I guess it really wasn't that dangerous.

Likely he knew that Luke needed to see everything he knew--his aunt and uncle, his farm--destroyed in order to realize he needed to come along. That said, Luke took the news quite well. :P

Na.. it was the typical parent to kid reverse psychology he was employing... tell them to not do something you want them to do.
