HAPPY STAR WARS DAY 2013!
Will Luke replace his father at the Emperor’s side? Of course not. Luke was willing to sacrifice himself for his friends, the rebellion and his father who he still believed had good in him. The lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader was well played and became a role reversal from their previous encounter from Empire. When Vader’s conflicted feelings come to the surface for his son, he turns on the Emperor and instantly redeems himself and creates one of the best moments in the original trilogy.
What a blast this action sequence turned out to be and was certainly aided by the music of John Williams. Besides Princess Leia in a gold bikini killing Jabba the Hutt, you have a blind Han Solo getting his revenge on Boba Fett and watching Luke Skywalker become a powerful Jedi was the stuff that made you get out of your seat and cheer. It was a wonderful opening act for our heroes and it set the tone for the rest of the film.
