Can Qui-Gon Speak to Vader in Kenobi? (Luke did it to Cade) - Star Wars Theory

In Kenobi, is it possible for Qui-Gon Jinn to reach out to Vader in a means of getting through to Anakin? Is it possible for a sith to even hear from a Jedi force ghost?
this has been done in legends when Luke Skywalker visited dark side turned Cade Skwalker, to troll him until he turned back to the light side of the force.

    Me who has loved Star Wars for years and just assumed Qui Gon DID speak to Anakin/Vader because he is a good father figure* Star Wars Theory: nah that's not what happened. Me: wh- what.. 😥

    I think qui Gon jinn would have realistically tried to communicate with Vader, it wasn't a priority for producers of the movies to show us but I think it would have been a great addition to the storyline/chain of events. And it wouldn't matter if this communication failed or succeeded it just needed to be in the story/movie

    hi yes he should have reached out to him and said beware of the dark side angry and more angry will get stronger which will lead him to the dark side and pain will come. he lost his way and when he killed all the jedi his place in the dark side. and when he faced obi wan and lost. that is were his angry growled and Vader was born very powerful in the dark side was he. but his son Luke saved him let go of your hate I feel conflicted in you. he vader said it is to late for me son. and in the end Vader gave his life for his son and took the full force of the dark side lighting. his son lives. he was right about him.

    I'd like to believe Vader would kinda stonewall him. But it would be nice to see Vader doubt himself or what he's done just a bit, just enough to show that he knows what he's done, but the dark side is all he has left. Like if he were to try to justify his misdeeds to Qui-gon.

    I think they are keeping it secret about all of the cameos . When you tell the story of obi wan and Vader I think after Luke, Leia, and their new parents. There are those who were really close to them. If they want to explore obi wan's mind I believe they have to bring back qui gon and Satine. In the same way, they will have to show Padme for Vader's nightmares.

    I think that Vader will be kinda receptive at first but then convince himself that Qui-Gon was the cause of all of this, because Vader always blames his problems on everyone else instead of taking the blame for it and so I think that’s when he will sit Qui-Gon out further pushing him to the dark side, to where we see him in Rogue One and A New Hope.

    I think Vader is seeking out qui-gon through the force and Qui-gon is fleeing from him in order to sustain his consciousness in the living force. Vader would be seeking revenge for abandoning him like a child does when they lose a parent suddenly. It's part of grief. Vader would seek to crush Qui-gon out of misguided insecurity probably egged on by Sidious so Qui-gon is running away from Vader.

    This is kinda unrelated but still related to the Kenobi show, and I commented it on another video: I think they can work around Vader's quote to Obi-Wan in a New Hope. All Vader says to Kenobi is: "I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner, now I am the master." They could say that Vader believed himself to still be a "Learner" when they clash in the Kenobi show. And only after their fight, as he grows and learns more he considers himself a "Master" before their final duel in a New Hope. EDIT: a whole TEN YEARS before they meet again in a New Hope. I don't get why fans are gettin their panties in a bunch over this, lmao. I think this show is gonna be so badass. Their fight in the Kenobi show will let Obi-Wan see Vader's suit and maybe he uses that to his advantage to beat Vader or at least weaken him and escape their fight. Maybe Vader then upgrades his suit for their next inevitable meeting. If Obi-Wan beats Vader in a fight or even if he weakens Vader and escapes, it would jus be all the more reason for Vader to hate Kenobi and drive him to search even harder.

    I think the concept of the force ghost was still "new" or at least new to this generation of Jedi and so I believe it took Qui-Gon a long time to learn how to communicate from beyond and that's why he never spoke to Anakin prior to him turning to the dark side. It was too late for Qui-Gon to reach out once he finally figured it out. Also Anakin as a little kid, he was still kind and innocent and wouldn't force choke or smash anything with his force abilities as a little guy.

    Part of me likes to believe that the Qui-Gon redeems Vader ALpast series is canon and that Qui-Gon spoke to Vader during RotJ and guided him into besting his master and saving Luke. Another part of me likes to believe that Qui-Gon knew it was the will of the Force that Vader do what he did and knew to stay out of it. And Another part of me likes to believe Qui-Gon is a secret ally of Palpatine and a Sith Lord himself and everything was proceeding as they had foreseen. Qui-Gon: "Train the boy." Palpatine: "Okay I will DEW IT!" Qui-Gon: "He will bring balance." Palpatine: "Soon I will have a new apprentice, one far younger and more powerful." Both: *Evil Laughter*

    I think you covered this before with Qui-Gon Jinn. I don't believe he would speak to Vader\Anakin once he became one with the force. Being one with the force I would imagine Qui-Gon Jinn could see the unbalanced from the Jedi and the unbalanced from the Sith. This would Grant him the foresight to know that Anakin would bring balance both from the light side and the dark side to a neutral Galaxy with the use of the force. If we look at what's left over after a Return of the Jedi there is only a handful of people left in the Galaxy that even understand the force.

    Maybe that’s why he hasn’t spoken to Vader, because he feels that he is partly or fully to blame for all that has happened, he was adamant that Aniken be trained into the Jedi order. And when he died he failed him and ultimately the galaxy, in a larger perspective, as he wasn’t there to train and guide Aniken. He may also have given up trying, we know he tried in episode 2 when he killed the sand people, but it didn’t seem like Aniken heard him, maybe he just feels ashamed and hopeless.

    Qui-Gon's presence in the series after his death has been a marvelous feature used to guide characters to progress towards enlightenment about The Force. His interaction with Yoda during the Clone Wars series was amazing in giving insight into becoming One with The Force after death. _Honestly it's given me questions as to how Qui-Gon learned this technique..._ In novels pertaining to Kenobi's time alone on Tatooine he has also appeared briefly to give glimmers of hope and insight during the rising age of the Empire. _While I haven't read enough novels on the matter, I'm sure others have much more insight and details on this at length._ Great Video! Loved pondering over this topic.

    Swt, you constantly speak of Anakins premonition ability, but you also agree those premonitions are from Palps, I believe Ani never had an ability, it was always Palps giving him those nightmares. That explains the whole timeline perfectly as opposed to what you said in this video about Ani not realizing why those bad things happen and their outcome. Recap….Ani never had premonition, it was always Palp feeding that info to him.

    I get he was all about "following the will of the Force", but the fact that Qui-Gon never once spoke to Vader, or even at the least spoke to Anakin I think, absolutely is a plot hole. tbh, I think it sort of puts him in a bad light even, since he 100% could have helped Anakin understand some of his "dark" emotions. I'm not expecting it, but I certainly hope it does happen.

If thats the intererpetation then during the OW Series Qui-Gon hasnt spoken with Anakin, for me we need to see him speaking with Obi-Wan and him explainng he has tried but cant get through. Vader finding out that he has family in Luke & Leia and that the Emperor lied to him about Padme is the first crack in the dark sides hold over Anakin its too early for Qui-Gon to get through
