“When you see the films one through six it’s a very very different experience…but the idea of when Darth Vader comes on in episode 4 it suddenly has a huge, powerful effect because you know, right from the get go that that is Princess Leia’s father. You know that when you cut down to Luke, you know that that’s his son. And you realize that Darth Vader is a pathetic character, he’s not this big all-powerful monster. He’s actually this pathetic man who made some wrong choices, who found himself trapped in the word of evil…and the only people who can get him out are his kids.” – George Lucas
