is for Qui Gon Jinn
And more specifically, what happened when he died?
In the early episodes of Star Wars, when a Jedi dies, their body vanishes. Becomes One with the Force. (I'm not an expert in Star Wars lore, obviously.)
Exhibits A and B:
Zip forward to 5:30 for the important part.
Both Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi evaporate upon death. Cool. I liked it.
Forward to 5:40. Qui Gon's body is still there, and later, they have a funeral for him and burn his body.
I was confused. And still am. Why didn't he evaporate and become One with the Force?
Was it because he was ultimately responsible for the rise of Darth Vader? Was there a lapse in the synapses of George Lucas's brain? I don't know. Someone please explain.
Does that Really Rhyme?
