I like how “Governor Moff Tarkin” treats “Moff” as Tarkin’s first name.

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

And Obi-Wan and Darth Vader are listed under “teams”. Because as we all know, they were best friends in that movie. 😉

I wonder what the Star Wars franchise would have became if the idea of Vader being Luke’s father never happened.

I watched Star Wars with my family the other night and was reminded of something: as Luke, Leia and Han are celebrating and are interrupted by the recovery of an extremely battle-scarred R2 as well as a distressed C-3PO, obviously they stop screaming but - pretty much - Luke just says “He’ll be alright” and they move on VERY quickly. I don’t see much room for doing it another way myself, but I feel like 3PO could have used a bit of emotional support there! It almost spoiled the ending for me this time round.

I suppose it’s the curse of happy endings that many inevitably feel contrived or forced. Still my favourite Star Wars film though.

Wookie was probably more common than Wookiee everywhere back then.
