If Luke could know that Leia was his sister just by feeling it with the Force, why couldn't Vader feel the same thing to know she's his daughter?
There is another error regarding family connections. At the beginning of ESB, when Imperials are looking through probe droids to find the Rebel base Vader looks at a picture of Hoth and says something like "That is the system. And I'm sure Skywalker is with them." but a few scenes later when he speaks with Sheev's hologram and Sheev tells him that the Rebel who blew up the Death Star is the son of Anakin Skywalker Vader is surprised
I never understood if Vader knew about Luke existing and living on Tatooine at all. Movie never reveals this. He might've known and it was only surprised when it was Luke who destroyed the Death Star. Then Vader started showing the interest in converting him.
But we certainly know he was surprised at Leia, saying 'Obi Wan hide her well from me', Which he didn't say about Luke
>If Luke could know that Leia was his sister just by feeling it with the Force, why couldn't Vader feel the same thing to know she's his daughter?
Fox tasked Lucas to rip off Dune.
Star Wars is a complete hack job.
Lucas doesn't even like Sci-Fi.
Not the same guy, but how? He clearly knows about a Rebel called Skywalker at the beginning and then he asks "How is that possible?" when Emperor tells him that the guy who blew up the Death Star is his son
He didn't know he had children. If you'd like the canon story behind Vader finding out that Luke was his son read the Marvel Darth Vader comics. I recommend them. Several websites from which to download them for free.
Leia could probably defeat every jedi if she unleashed her full cocaine power.
Read from the man himself.
> “I really have no interest in science fiction at all.”
How you people regard this man amongst Tolkien et al, beggars belief.
Canonfags should go stick their head in a ditch. Fuck retrospective canon and hindsight. The only truth is that Vader being Luke's father never even entered anyone's minds, not even Lucas's, until they started work on Empire. All of this is made strikingly clear from reading the multiple original script drafts for the first movie, and from closely following Lucas's pattern of doing everything by the seat of his pants.
Luke had literally just been told he had a twin sister, and was consciously figuring it out.
Vader had no fucking clue that he had a daughter, so why would he think it might be the girl in front of him?
Then why was it hinted at in ANH? Aunt Beru is talking about Luke to her husband and says something like "He can't stay here forever. He has too much of his father in him". To which Uncle Owen replies "That's what I'm afraid of". I thought that was a clever piece of foreshadowing that people would get after rewatching the original trilogy.
>doesn't even recognize his own daughter through the force
>only brings her up to goad Luke and imply he's going to rek her
Is he the worst father ever?
>Sheev tells him that the Rebel who blew up the Death Star is the son of Anakin Skywalker Vader is surprised
Added in the special edition. Wasn't in the original cut or the 1997 version.
Also the lines in the special edition are ambiguous enough that Vader can already know Luke's name and simply be processing the information
>'I have no doubt this boy is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker.'
>'How is that possible?'
>'Search your feelings, Lord Vader, you will know it to be true.'
You could say that Vader probably had his own suspicions, but the confirmation from Sheev leads him to fully believe it, though still want to know how it's possible (since he didn't know his children survived).
You'll notice how in both versions Luke's father is either referred to as 'Skywalker' or 'Anakin Skywalker', rather than as direct addressing of Vader. This is probably to ensure that the ebic tweest still works, but I like the idea that Sheev encourages Vader to become so isolated from his former self that he considers him a different person, and one way he does this is via language. I would've like it if, in TFA, when Snoke talks about how Kylo's mission is to kill his father, he'd referred to Han as 'the father of Ben Solo', just because it would add some continuity to the idea that becoming a Sith lord or a Dark side user means sacrificing your previous identity completely (even though neither Dooku/Tyranus or Sheev/Sidious do it in the prequels). Though then it might've lead to an aping of the ebic tweest scene from ESB, which would've been shit.
> Star Wars
Goddammit you triggered me so fucking bad
>hindsight is foreshadowing
It was convenient that it worked out that way, but no, they were worried he'd run off to become a warrior and get himself killed in a space war, like his father did.
As much as I hate giving the prequels any more weight than they deserve, having Padme in hair buns similar to Leia might explain why Vader was hesitant to kill Leia outright rather than "She may still be of some use to us" being the real excuse. Even if he had no idea Leia was his daughter, the similarity might've been enough to tug on what was left of his heartstrings.
>All those lines scribbled and re-written by hand by George Lucas
Remember when Vader stopped Boba Fett from shooting Chewbacca in Empire Strikes Back? Was it because C3PO was strapped to Chewie's back and the vestige of humanity couldn't bear to see his droid further damaged?
