“Now, young Skywalker, you will die.”
— Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi (1983), screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and George Lucas, story by George Lucas
The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Last words. Today’s suggestion by Will King.
Trivia: In the 2004 DVD release, George Lucas explained the reason behind why Yoda told Luke that Darth Vader was his father. Lucas had consulted with a child psychologist during the making of the film. The psychologist said that unless it was unequivocally stated that Vader was Luke’s father, moviegoers age 12 and under would dismiss Vader’s claim to be Luke’s father as a lie.
Dialogue on Dialogue: Commentary by Will: “Last words aren’t always the last line of a film. Sometimes they’re the last line spoken by a character, such as here: Emperor Palpatine’s ironic final words to Luke.”
