I just realized a few years ago that the force wasn't used to move objects in ANH. There was Vader doing the force-choke, Obi-Wan using mind-control and sensing death, and Luke predicting the remote's laser blasts and targeting his weapons. The first time it was explicitly shown moving an object was Luke reaching for his lightsaber while hanging upside down in the cave in ESB. For those of you that experienced ESB for the first time in theaters, was this a shocking, holy-crap moment? Did Lucas even have the idea of the force being used for telekinesis during ANH or was it a new idea for the sequels? And an in-universe question, how did Luke know the force could do that? Update: Sorry, I just realized I should have asked this in the "Ask Questions here" thread. I'll be sure to do that next time.
