Luke did I ever tell you that those two droids across from us witnessed your fucking birth?
>Luke did i ever tell you about OOPA OOPA he helped handle your birth and floated above the ground using an icecream cone to take you out of your mother, he was a good friend
I saw a thread a while back complaining that they had such advanced technology yet couldn't save her from dying during child birth. At first it stuck, and then I remembered someone in the movie saying she "lost the will to live". Looking back, that was pretty good writing.
>Luke, did I ever tell you about OOPA OPPA? He served as the midwife and basically told us that you're mother died of a broken heart. We later found out that your mother died from heavy internal bleeding and that OOPA OOPA was a janitorial unit. Still, he was a very good friend.
R2-D2 was his mate on every mission and was a special droid.
C-3PO was literally created by kid Anakin, spent years with his mother, with him and with his wife, all of which were very important.
The idea that he would see them with Han Solo and whatever and just shrug is kind of dumb.
Did Vader ever even encounter the droids in the originals?
On the Death Star he doesn't see them, they are running to the Falcon while he is distracted with Obi-wan.
On Cloud City he doesn't see them because C3PO got blown up and R2 is with Luke.
On the second Death Star he doesn't see them because they're on the moon of Endor.
I'm struggling to think of an occasion where he ever even sees either of the droids.
Additionally, this is why he alters the deal and demands that Leia and Chewbacca be brought to his ship. Why else would he do that? He clearly didn't have any intention of capturing Leia in particular, he doesn't realize she is his daughter yet and since she's no longer a senator it's not like he has got any especial interest in capturing her, she is just some rebel who he was perfectly content to leave on Cloud City just minutes before.
No, he wanted to lure Luke into coming into the carbonite freeze chamber so that he could freeze him in carbonite. He says so explicitly and that's literally what he attempts to do immediately following this. If he thought Luke was coming to look for Leia/Chewie he would have them kept there, but he doesn't, he wants them brought to his ship, because he knows Luke is coming for him, to get revenge for his friends.
>Come away with me. Help me raise our child. Leave everything else behind while we still can!
Jesus christ broseph, did you watch any of the movie? The whole reason Han was even frozen in carbonite was to test it and make sure a person could sustain it and survive. If it were up to Fett, I'm sure he'd have just taken Han as is (hence "he's no good to me dead"), but Vader knew he'd need Luke as subdued as possible in order to take him to the Emperor.
>George Lucas' first wife cheats on him with a carpenter working on the home they made together
>she is the absolute center of his universe
>After denying him children, she turns around and let's carpenter guy impregnate her
You now realize the full extent of how powerful love is to Lucas, he would have given anything to have the love of his life back, just as padme feels towards Anakin
love has blinded her
R2's was never wiped. It was even a major part of one of the EU books where R2 had a bunch of Padme and Anakin conversations hidden in his memory banks and was being a stubborn fuck about showing them to Luke and Leia so they had to bring in one of the Republic's top splicers to force them out.
>Luke did I ever tell you about the time a droid with scoops for hands scooped you and your sister out of your mom's cooter where your mome then said "I ARE HEARTBROKEN" and went ded?
Pod racing was Unnecessary... (I think A New Hope was supposed to have a similar thing but like with Skyhoppers.. that idea never really got completed, and instead a skyhopper is simply seen sitting in the garage background.)
Pod racing is nothing more than a subplot that wasted time that could have been used to further flush out what the fuck was going on..
Also it was fucking weird as a kid when Anakin and Padme got together.. "Isn't she like 10-15 years his elder?" was basically my thought at the time..
Really the prequels would've been better served as a miniseries or something of the sort..
Why don't we hear anything more about podracing in the original trilogy.
there's a graphic novel from Dark Horse that's supposed to be based off early Drafts of episode IV..
Padme's story is that of a strong woman who is deprived of her agency - who struggles, does her best, and still succumbs. But then her final act of suicide is a huge fuck-you to the entire universe. It's the first, and only, truly radical act in the prequel films - perhaps in any of the films. Padme provides the purest expression of the light side. It's directly analogous to Ripley in Alien 3, except Padme goes further.
Like, her act actually ruptures the fabric of the plot. The medical robots are baffled, and Palpatine (our narrator, remember) doesn't understand it at all. He says Anakin killed her, and he doesn't appear to be lying. It's just incomprehensible to everyone. Padme is, consequently, the first person to actually defeat the emperor.
>accepting Disney newfag canon
Any huge franchise with such a long lifespan and so much content is gonna have silly moments in it
people unironically love Doctor Who even though it's the only major sci-fi series where they can and do retcon literally anything at any time.
>lol just kidding, this person isn't dead
Doctor Who was created before the concept of canon, and it was created by a committee at the BBC so there's nobody with the authority to do it anyway.
And like you say, canonity (?) doesn't make much sense when the main character travels between times and dimensions every episode.
I love how rushed this last segment is as if George sincerely stopped giving a fuck.
"and....Vader projected his rage across the galaxy and force choked Padame to death."
Like he couldn't just simply have her die from childbirth? It literally happens to woman all of the time.
That's not what happened at all, she lost Anakin so she lost the will to live because he was everything for her.
It was more poetic than just dying of "natural" causes and it actually happens in real life.
that's fucking dumb
>oh yeah I just had two healthy children who will need my guidance and nurturing more than ever now that their father is evil, but I should just die because of a broken heart now!
>a full grown Mark Hamill just popped out of Padmé's cunt
How the fuck were the droids supposed to recognize Luke when they only saw him for like 3 minutes as a newborn before not seeing him again for years?
It is. I just watched it two days ago, and every scene is perfect. It's funny how Lucas complains that he didn't have enough control over ESB, yet when he went back and changed the Blurays, it was the one he fucked with the least. Even he realized it was damn-near perfect.
Ani sounds like Anee or Annie (or something close) in most languages I know about that aren't english but use the same latin letters. He probably is not an english native speaker.
this theory goes out the window when it's revealed that, somehow, anakin skywalker is related to luke skywalker. only droids would be clever enough to work out exactly how, even having witnessed literally every important event that you would need to witness to piece the exact nature of anakin walker (from tatooine)'s familial relationship with his son, luke skywalker (from tatooine) all together into a coherent hole, in which the truth is revealed that anakin skywalker, luke skywalker's father, is in fact the father of luke skywalker, who is, strangely enough, the son of anakin skywalker, his father.
>she "lost the will to live"
for her childrens sake thats fucking retarded. If her children were taken from her I'd understand but its fucking retarded that she gives birth to them then just decides she doesnt want to be around and help protect them.
Luke reached Cloud City around the time Han was frozen in carbonite. Vader was informed of this by an Imperial officer. He then asks for the Cloud City workers to prepare the freezer for Luke, an then sets the trap of moving Leia and Chewbacca towards the carbonite room (Leia: "LUKE, IT'S A TRAP! IT'S A TRAP!").
Once Luke was there, there was no reason to leave Leia in the city.
He was also manipulating Lando:
>Vader: You may take Captain Solo to Jabba the Hutt after I have Skywalker
>Boba: It's not good for me to be him dead
>Vader: He will not be permanently damaged
>Lando: Lord Vader, what about Leia and the Wookie?
>Vader: They may never again leave this city
>Lando: But there was never a condition to give Han to this bounty hunter!
>Vader: Perhaps you thinl you have been treated unfairly?
>Vader: Good. It would be unfortunate to leave a garrison here.
>Lando: (This deal is getting worse all the time)
>Vader: Calrissiam, send the princess and wookie to my ship
>Lando: You said they will be here in the city under my supervision!
>Vader: I am altering the deal, pray I don't alter it any further.
