Darth Vader and The Dark Side
May 4, 2023
Today is a special day for one of the biggest fandoms in history – Star Wars Day! As we celebrate, let's take a moment to appreciate one of the franchise's biggest mysteries: who is Darth Vader?
In Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), viewers finally learn that Darth Vader is actually Luke Skywalker's father. However, this iconic scene is often misquoted. While many remember the line as "Luke, I am your father," the actual line is "No, I am your father." Surprising, right? You can check it out for yourself here.
Notably, the voice of Darth Vader is the legendary James Earl Jones. In 2022, at the age of 91, he retired from voicing the role. However, he signed over his voice archives so that his voice can be used as Darth Vader through artificial intelligence (A.I.).
So, let's celebrate this special day like it's the last day on Alderaan!
