So how exactly did this whore get pregnant? Do we know who the father is? I don't buy the whole "it just happened" story she gives in Phantom
There's a deleted scene in REVENGE OF THE SITH where Palpatine reveals he used the Force to impregnate Shmi with the Midchlorians so she'd give birth to the "Chosen One".
He even says "You could say I am your father" and Anakin says "that's impossible".
Obviously she was a parallel to Mary, the mother of Jesus.
I mean fuck, this movie came out the same year. Lucas cast her as Shmi on purpose.
This is taken from Page 42 of the Making of Revenge of the Sith book, which contains storyline and dialogue from George Lucas' rough draft of the script.
-On Coruscant, PALPATINE completes his seduction of ANAKIN, who at first refuses to go over to the dark side-- until the Chancellor makes a startling confession:
DARTH SIDIOUS-- "I have waited all these years for you to fulfill your destiny... I arranged for your conception. I used the power of the Force to will the midichlorians to start the cell divisions that created you."
ANAKIN-- "I don't believe you."
DARTH SIDIOUS-- "Ahhh, but you know it's true. When you clear your mind, you will sense the truth. you could almost think of me as your father."
ANAKIN-- "That's impossible!"
DARTH SIDIOUS-- "Nevertheless, you must decide."
I will absolutely fucking ever understand the hype around these movies.
are they entertaining? sure. but they are seriously nothing more than popcorn movies with cheesey dialogue filled with one liners, and shitty predictable plotlines
well they were nostalgia films made for babyboomer generation to relive their childhood adventure serials.
they're so basic and universal they work no matter what year you make them in. It's part of the appeal.
the force is an emergent property of that specific galaxy.
I'm about to drop a bomb on you.
Hyperspace is incredibly tubey and twisty in the star wars galaxy due to ancient fuckery.
All that tubeyness and twistiness have acted like logic gates through sheer chance. So now you have a massive galaxy brain spanning over the hyperspace ways.
Have you ever heard the story about Darth Plagues the wise? He was so powerful with the force, he could influence the mideclorians to create life. (Palpatine then turns glaring at Anakin)
