June Challenge


Luke Skywalker, pursuing an uncertain future, duels Darth Vader in Cloud City, believing him to be his father's killer. After Luke loses his hand, Vader attempts to lure him with promises of ruling together and then reveals, "No, I am your father." This iconic line, often misquoted as "Luke, I am your father," shatters Luke's naïve view of good and evil.

George Lucas kept this twist highly confidential during the production of The Empire Strikes Back. Mark Hamill learned the truth just before filming the pivotal scene, while James Earl Jones, who voiced Vader, kept the secret during his recording sessions.

This twist added dramatic depth, leaving audiences in suspense until Return of the Jedi could resolve whether Vader was more than just an antagonist. Could he be a fallen hero?**

The numbers 1 and 2 have a lot of significance to Vader. As a child, Vader had a 20,000 Midi-Chlorian count (highest count ever), Vader spent 12 minutes in the first release of Star Wars, and 2 billion Alderaan's were destroyed by Vader using Death Star 1.
