For those doubting that GL had the whole saga planned out in detail while making IV — Page 2

And even that gives Luke and Leia different ages: Luke’s age is now 18, but Leia is still “around sixteen years old.”

Which would explain where I got my numbers, that my mom had to point out to me as a kid was silly, they’re twins!

Ok, so there are identical twins and fraternal twins, why can’t there be…uh…some term for twins born two years apart?

The mother died. They saved the egg and some of Darths sperm, tho years later Leia was born. The first Leiah that was born alongside Luke died.

Edit: Unless Leah’s real dad is the force. But then how would they be twins?

I was proposing that The Leah that was born with Luke in Ep 3 died. But they saved one of Padme’s eggs and some of darths sperm and had a tube baby 2 years later. And they named that kid Leah too. That will explain the 2 year difference between the twins. Also why those twins aren’t identical.

Or maybe they’re half-siblings. Vintage 1977-canon taste with the same incest flavor!

Seriously though, GL first decided that Leia would hook up with Han rather than Luke in late '77 – the very same time that he began thinking Luke’s sister should appear as a new character in a future SW film.

And virtually all of Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art from the first film shows Luke and Leia with identical blond bowl haircuts. Join the dots.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

So…there were three eggs during the initial pregnancy?

Well if we’re falling back on “she’s an alien” then you don’t need to justify any of this.

You don’t know what twins are, do you

If Arnold Swarzenegger and Danny Devito can be twins, then anyone can.
