OBI-WAN KENOBI: Newly Revealed BTS Footage Shows Moses Ingram Training For Standout Darth Vader Battle

In the penultimate episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Moses Ingram's Reva finally attempted to take her revenge on Darth Vader. This awesome behind-the-scenes footage shows the work that went into that sequence...

It would have been easy for Obi-Wan Kenobi to keep the focus solely on the Jedi Master's battle with Darth Vader, but Lucasfilm chose to throw Sith Inquisitors into the mix (villains we've seen in Star Wars Rebels and Jedi: Fallen Order). The results were interesting, with The Grand Inquisitor sidelined early on and the focus instead shifted to Moses Ingram's Reva. 

Unfortunately, the actor was bombarded with racist abuse early on, prompting both Lucasfilm and Ewan McGregor to speak out in defence of Ingram joining this Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Those attacks were reprehensible, but Ingram would prove the haters wrong with a solid performance and compelling story arc that saw Reva revealed as a survivor of Order 66. While we don't know exactly how she was enlisted into the ranks of the Empire's Sith Inquisitors, the villain had spent years plotting her revenge on Darth Vader for his role in the death of her fellow Jedi Younglings. 

She failed, but only after an absolutely thrilling lightsaber battle against the Sith Lord. 

Vader used the Force to repel Reva's attacks and then fought the new "Grand Inquisitor" with her own lightsaber, seemingly not deeming her worthy of his own blade. Once again, he left her for dead, though Reva survived and her story looks set to continue elsewhere. 

In the video below, we see Ingram training for this fight against Vader, and you might be surprised by how many of her own stunts the actor performed for this memorable sequence. In fact, it appears a stuntwoman/stand-in was needed for relatively little of the clash, and that could go some way towards explaining why it worked so well in Obi-Wan Kenobi's standout penultimate episode. 

We don't know when or where Ingram's Reva will show up again, though Andor is a solid possibility seeing as it will consist of a whopping 24 episodes across two seasons.
