I'm a little confused about something that I thought was a simple answer. Looking around on the Internet and this board I've seen that essentially everyone thinks that GL didn't have plans to make Darth Vader Luke's father in the (potential) future movies, and that it was only after he got the OK for Empire that he came up with that plot twist. Well, upon reading the 25th anniversary OT novelization, Lucas writes in the ANH introduction the following: "...When I wrote the original Star Wars screenplay, I knew that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father; the audience did not. I always felt that this revelation, when and if I got the chance to make it, would be shocking, but I never expected the level of emotional attachment that audiences had developed for Luke..." If this was true, it would make lines like "He has too much of his father in him" make much more sense, instead of contributing it to luck. Also, hi there. This is my first post <3.
